Practical Joke on Me

Note to self: Remember where you put the fake maggots!

In general, I am not freaked out by insects. In fact, I rather find them interesting. The only type of insect that freaks me out is bees, wasps, and hornets. I don't dislike them, just get freaked out by them if they have taken a strong interest to me and I don't have epinephrine with me. Yes, I am allergic to them, and at this point in my life, I don't care to find out how allergic. Anaphylactic shock is not something I want to experience first hand.

Anyhow, when I was at the ASBMB conference this past April, I picked up some fake maggots that they had out for the taking at this forensic exhibit. I dunno why, just thought that it would be something cool to have. Also, I thought it might come in handy if I ever need some payback for a practical joke played on me. I think that they look quite realistic.

Well, I did not want to walk around the convention center with fake maggots in my hand, so I put them into this little pouch that I got at another exhibit and then put the pouch into the bookbag that ASBMB gave me. I then promptly forgot about the maggots in the pouch in the bookbag.

So, then I started using the ASBMB bookbag and taking it to the lab with me. I was looking for something in the bookbag and came upon the fake maggots.

Suffice it to say, practical joke played on me, by me...

That's funny. Next time put them in a brown paper bag and label them. If there IS a next time, that is. :)
