Today at Santa Lucia park I saw one of the strangest ideas yet. The woman had a small glass aquarium with twenty or so live beetle crawling around inside. These were not your ordinary beetles. They were beetles with bling. Rhinestones, small gold chains, colorful bits of cut glass and paint adorned the backs of each beetle. I couldn't resist asking her who bought them and what they used them for. She smiled and said that people attach them to their shirts to wear as pins! She generously offered to give me one, but I declined, explaining that we were only here house sitting temporarily and couldn't have pets. Walking home I thought, if I had taken her up on her offer,I would have had to name it Elvis.
