ANT IN CHOIR by Professor Nancy
It was Cheesefare Sunday, and our little choir was singing hymns from the Divine Liturgy when a medium-size ant appeared on our music book. My young companion and I were mesmerized by his travels on the page. He finally stopped near the top and proceeded to wash his antennae and legs. Then he settled down and seemed to sleep. He had found a little niche at the top where our turning the pages avoided touching him. It was also near the light attached to the music stand, so he could be comfortably warm. We figured out when the design of the pages would change and touch him when turned, so my companion took charge of encouraging him to move to a safer place. She took two yellow paper tabs and attempted to pick him up. He moved so fast, startling her so that she dropped the tabs. He ran to the bottom of the music book and dropped onto the stand. As we watched, he again crawled onto the book and made his way up to the top. At this point we had no choice but to turn the pages when needed and let the ant avoid being touched on his own. When she had to go to Sunday School, I continued to oversee his position. The man to my left saw the ant on the page and, thinking to help me, went to brush him off. I quickly interfered , saving the ant from being squashed. I explained to the man that I was protecting the ant and that he seemed to enjoy his forays through the pages. By then he had found a new spot at the top of the book, between the yellow tabs used as markers. Eventually he may have gotten hungry and started running up and down the sides of the book, looking for a way to get down. So I picked up a yellow tab and brushed him off the book, and he landed on the carpet floor. I wished him well in avoiding being trampled as we left our seats.
