deird1: Mother Gothel, swooning dramatically (Gothel swoon)
[personal profile] deird1
A fly just suicided in my honey jar.

I missed the moment of impact, but it's quite clear what happened. While my back was turned, focusing on my pikelets, a fly flew in, found the open, inviting honey jar, thought "Score!", dived in with great enthusiasm, and then discovered its mistake.

By the time I turned around, pikelet in hand, it was wriggling its little legs frantically, no doubt shrieking "Help! Delicious sticky death! HELP!!!" in whatever language flies speak.

I was powerless to help it. And I would have felt bad for it – but mostly, I was just annoyed about it ruining my honey.

Was there vinegar nearby? I have a theory to test.

Well, if your honey's ruined anyway, you may as well replicate the experiment.

I have tested that. Turns out that balsamic vinegar catches way more flies than honey.

THEY LIED TO ME.

Seriously, you threw out half a jar of honey? I would have used a tablespoon to scoop out happily-drowning fly and surrounding honey, and kept using the rest...
(Maybe I'm more frugal than you. Or I like fly-flavoured honey.)
