I was talking to a friend a couple of days ago and she was telling a story about her son looking for "potato bugs" in the back yard. As soon as I heard the words "potato bug", I had to stop her with a "Say WHAT? There are POTATO BUGS in Utah?!?!?" She looked at me like I was loony, no argument there. "Of course there are potato bugs in Utah. Aren't they everywhere?". Suddenly it hit me that our definitions of "potato bug" were not jiving. We went straight to the internet and Googled "potato bug". She quickly understood why I was horrified at the thought of her son playing with potato bugs.
Of course her son was playing with these. WHO HASN'T??
Wanna know why I almost passed out at the thought of a POTATO BUG??
