Something You May Not Know About Ladybug Pee

“Do you know what color a ladybug’s pee is?” asked Hudson on the way to school one morning.

I, you know, read and stuff, but I can’t say I’d ever come across this little factoid. Maybe it was covered in a more current copy of Star not found at the Eternity Bar nail salon.

“It’s white…and green,” he announced with authority.
“How do you know this?”
“I just know.”

Sometimes I worry that he has some secret lab in his closet that I don’t know about.  Hopefully it is not filled with a collection of insect urine.  I thought finding dirty underwear was bad.

“Zoe told me,” he elaborated, “She knows these things.”

Well, that settles it.  If his preschool friends say it is so, then it must be so.

We may need to have a talk about making sure his information is coming from a reliable source.  Like Star magazine , which I am expecting will come out with a fact-check article on ladybug pee any day now.

  1. I just filmed a ladybug on me today appearing to groom itself and then I saw what appeared to be a light small puddle of yellow substance on my skin as it flew away. Was it ladybug vomit if it wasn't urine?
