The Adventures of Ethan Ant

No, not Ethan Hunt! But the adventures are no less thrilling!

(This is hearkening back to the days of my myna chronicles that I used to write nearly two years ago (click here)). There are far fewer mynas these days in the city than there used to be then. Makes me wonder if they are as invasive as they are purported to be. But ants are still aplenty so hopefully these guys will be the source of many more adventures to come!)

So our hero the ant was just going about one fine Sunday morning, minding his own business when suddenly he gets a message through a mysterious carrier.

“Good morning Mr Ethan Ant. Your mission should you choose to accept it involves the retrieval of a stolen object of great secrecy hidden inside a dangerous flower..yada yada yada” You know how it goes better than I do.

Anyway without a thought to the consequences or his safety Ant plunges into action

First he does a reconnaissance of the area and lands up on the flower.

He then checks that it is indeed the right flower as per the coordinates given to him (yes it is)

He then proceeds to extricate the object of great significance

Proves to be tiring work- but there’s no stopping him.

Phew- Need a Break

And once it’s done- then the great finale- the reverse bungee jump escape act

Cue: Mission Impossible Theme Music

woohoo!

(For those who didn’t get it- Ethan Hunt= Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible)
