What is going on with the caterpillar? It’s an insect that lives in a chubby body, inching his way through life – probably terrified that one misstep will have him falling off the tree branch with no safety net below. Fat kids should not be forced to live in high trees, it’s just not natural! Then one night the caterpillar decides to build himself a blanket fortress to take his nap in… and he wakes up as a butterfly!

I have never woken up as a hippo after falling sleep on the couch.

Do you think the caterpillar brain knows what is going on? He eats a bunch of leaves, without even a drop of salad dressing to make it palatable. That is reason alone to want to morph into another creature! Then he builds his safety blankie and prepares to take the warmest nap of his entire life.

He probably watches some Netflix as he falls asleep.

Is he completely unaware of what he is about to become? Or does the caterpillar know he is about to wake up as a beautiful winged creature, colorful and interested in flowers? Finally, a meal that won’t make him cry himself to sleep! This previously chubby creature now has the figure of a supermodel… but what about his brain? Is it the same one? Does he remember being a caterpillar? Does he recognize his other caterpillar friends who haven’t taken their transformative nap yet?

I bet the butterfly is a complete snob, mocking the fat bugs as he soars over them.

How exactly would the caterpillar brain know how to operate a set of wings?! His brain must have been reprogrammed while inside the blanket fort – maybe a short video tutorial was played for the caterpillar. Imagine how wild it would be if he knew how to fly as a caterpillar, yet he was forced by nature to walk everywhere because he hadn’t grown his wings yet. I guess we should all be thankful that butterflies don’t have stingers…

Bitterness and butt swords are a lethal combination!

I don’t know what the answers are to these questions, but I know I’m going to think about them for at least another 6 hours.

It’s a damn good thing I don’t have a day job.

  1. haha, I wonder when the point comes when one knows that one has eaten enough and can safely go to sleep to wake up as a beautiful creature? can one pass the moment and just remain a superfat caterpillar? (i’ve sometimes seen those, late in the season, so i wonder if those just forgot to sleep)?

  2. Now I’ve got caterpillers and butterflies on the brain. Thanks Heather lol! I actually kept a catepillar once. it was only for a few days but I loved that little thing. I wanted to watch it transform but then started feeling guilty for keeping it trapped in the fish tank in my room because it needed to be outside. Haha, now I am definitely going to be thinking about this all day! #AnythingGoes

    1. My friend has an outdoor cage area and she puts rogue ones in it. That way they don’t get eaten by predators. She seems to know right when they’re going to need a place to cocoon and usually within a day of putting them in there with food, they are all wrapped up.

        1. Yeah, they have a really hard time surviving in her area due to the predators. And since she works with animals for a living, she wants everything to have a chance at life. I love watching her videos when they are coming out of the cocoon.

          1. That’s amazing that she takes the time to care for these small creatures. Most people don’t even think twice about them, which is sad. Coming back again from #GlobalBlogging (so sorry I’m a bit late on this)
