Last night I saw an ant on my bathroom counter, and I put a deodorant can on top of it to trap it. No reason, just did it.

Didn’t think about it until this morning. Noticed the can, remembered the ant. Lifted the can, that ant crawled out and went on its merry way. Like the last 8 hours never happened.

I didn’t kill it. After the ordeal, I think he deserved to live.

But was in an ordeal really? What does an ant do for 8 hours when trapped in a tiny dark space? Just sit and wait?

What thoughts are ants capable of?
