I saw an ant in the bathroom today. It was very small. I hadn’t given a thought to ants all winter, and I doubt that any had thought of me. But I was pleased to see one again, and perhaps it was pleased to see a human, although I doubt that too.

I should add that the ant was not taking a bath or availing itself of any of the other facilities. Many ants are nearly toothless and even those that do have well-equipped masticatory margins are small so I have no worry that my toothbrush might be borrowed by ants, unless perhaps they are crazy.

Ants keep their teeth in a hat, which they assemble from paper.

People who bought ant hats also bought buzzy fly unisized hats.
