    Normally, I have to take several bike rides to swallow enough insects to survive on.

    You're going to have a built in supply!!

    Well, hold on now. He is in Boston, just like me, so i'm going to have to hold it for him (just for convenience). If he turns into "the fly" and is looking for some nectar or some crap, i'll send him your way. Wait, if i do, can i have your gear as well?

    I understand that most people manage to swallow a spider or two in their sleep, over the course of their lives.

    Better a fruit fly than a fruit bat.

    Was it delicious?

    I had a fly (?), um, fly into my lung one day when I was leaning on my garage post minding my own business. I yawned at the wrong time
    and inhaled that most unfortunate bug.

    I didn't panic, but called my doctor and held the line till he answered. He said don't worry, it'll dissolve naturally
    and surgery to remove it is more dangerous than 'swallowing' a bug.

    Pretty soon you will be able to recreate scenes from The Green Mile. Maybe go ahead and change your name to John Coffee.
