A former student turned adult (Yikes!) reminded me of this story from years past. 

I don’t know how I ever forgot it.

We were reading an article about ants. Included in this story was a description of the insect, including the color of their blood.

“Green?” I asked, wondering if the author of the piece was correct.

“It’s true,” one of my students replied. “When I was little, I was a professional ant squisher. I saw a lot of green blood in my time.”
