assassin bugs. These bizarre-looking insects are considered beneficial, although they might cause nightmares. They seemed to be on every plant along the trail.
Their bite is worse than their bark.
What do assassin bugs have to do with breakfast, you ask. They are the preferred subject to ponder while staring through the steam from the coffee cup. I don't want to ponder another day fighting creepy slime mold invaders on the playground woodchips. Or, sadly, why I didn't have my camera while the squirrel was tapdancing on the skylight.
And now into the shower. Two more days of school.
