What would YOU do?
Let’s just say that you have a package of yummy sandwich buns,leftover from dinner, sitting on the counter. You go to open it up and discover that inside, buzzing all around those sandwich buns, is a tiny little gnat.
There’s a good chance that tiny little gnat has been happily buzzing about for more than 3 hours inside that bag of yummy expensive buns.
Now, be honest. Would it not enter your mind to release the gnat and then still use the buns??
Honestly, I seriously considered it.
Last night before going to bed is when I saw the gnat trapped inside this package.
I opened the bag, released the gnat and then closed the bag up, thinking … “I can’t throw these away just because of one tiny gnat.”
I got up this morning, looked at that bag of buns sitting on the counter and again, I thought, “Darn it, that bun will taste good for lunch with a warmed up hamburger on it. One little tiny gnat is not going to spoil it for me”.
Except the one little tiny gnat did spoil it for me.
I couldn’t stop thinking about what type of damage a prisoned tiny gnat could do while inside a package of sandwich buns.
After 3 hours, it certainly would have wanted to snack so at least one of the buns would have gnat bites. After eating, and after 3 hours, it certainly would have to use the facilities and gnatted it’s intestinal stuff at least one time, possible dozens of times on those buns. And …. well, if it was a female gnat, it’s certainly possible that it would have laid some eggs here and there on those buns ….
so even releasing the gnat, giving it freedom, quite possibly, I’d come back later to find dozens of newly hatched baby gnats trapped inside the sandwich bun bag.
Ok, so I’m not going to eat the buns. I talked myself out of it.
But here comes the really bad part …..
Really bad, like shameful bad ….
Even though “I” will never eat any of these buns, my family does not know that there was a gnat trapped inside this bag for over 3 hours. What they don’t know can’t hurt them.
So if “I” can’t enjoy the deliciousness, at least they will be able to … as long as I don’t TELL THEM!
That thought remained in my head for ohh… until I drank a cup of coffee and then went back into the kitchen and saw ….
That dang package of delicious, but tainted sandwich buns.
Shame on me.
