We went crawdadding today. It was a blast. We caught about 52, but we were working with little kiddie nets, not traps, and we were splashing around in a creek.
We brought our catch home and I boiled it in old bay. I brought the big bowl of cooked crawdads out to the living room, with the kids standing in front of me, twisted the first body, and offered it to my three year old. You wanna suck the brains out, I said?? I was planning on grossing the kids out and joking around with them. What I didn't expect was the girlchild to grab that crawdad head and suck like her life depended on it. Not only that, but she begged for more. I couldn't twist bodies fast enough. She kept saying, I wanna suck it. Brains all gone. THe boychild tried one, and was done.
Needless to say, it was interesting. And gross.
