My Life is a Cartoon

Maybe my life is not a cartoon, but I do like to draw little cartoons about some of the things going on in my life.

Red Bug Dye

The Boy told me a while back that red M&M's are made red by a dye that comes from bugs. I didn't want to believe it, but at the same time I have not eaten them since he told me that.

I"m not sure if it's true or not, but I did try to find out.

There is a red dye called cochineal or carmine. It is not supposed to be harmful, it's just the idea is a little hard to get used to.
