I’m concerned that you don’t want to be friends anymore. Because that’s the only reason I can think of that you would give my child an ant farm. Unless, tell the truth: did someone give your kid an ant farm and this is just an extremely unfortunate-for-us regift?
Listen: Ants are not pets. We spend lots of money every summer paying a man to spray poison in our house to kill ants. Why would we want to offer up to ants a huge supply of super-yummy red gel to snack on and invite them into our home?
Don’t take this the wrong way, but this is the last time we’ll let our kid open a package with your return address. Because what will it be next year; a stuffed fluffy horsie infected with foot-and-mouth disease?
Seriously though Fellow Mother, please don’t ever give anyone else an ant farm. Thank goodness our child can’t read because we pretended it was a gift for “the wrong kid, we’ll get to the bottom of this” and quickly hid it on a high shelf.
I really like you, I'd like to stay friends, I will forgive you, but not right away.
