Beetles, the Bug, not the Band

David: Mommie! Come here!

Me: What? What is it? Are you O.K.?

David: Um, Mommie? What kind of bug is that?”

Me: Is that all you wanted? Uh, it’s a Japanese Beetle.

David: (Pausing for a minute as the wheels turned in his little head.) How did it get all the way to my house from Japanese?

Me: You mean Japan?

David: Uh-huh. Isn’t Japanese–

Me: Japan.

David: Yeah, Japan too far away?

Me: They emigrated David. It’s a Japanese-American Beetle.

David: Oh.
