Sometimes it's better not to know. Trust me.

A beaming Clayton opens the screen door and holds up a Grasshopper

"Look What I caught Mom!  Can I EAT him?"

I assume the look of a deer caught in headlights; looking for a safe corner to dart unnoticed


I'd prefer if you didn't?"

Clay: "Okay then.  I'll eat him!"

I think we understood each other perfectly. 
I didn't have a good reason for saying no,
and couldn't bring myself to say yes.
He knew he had the silent permission.
I never asked how it... (gulp) went,
but heard him telling Auntie Hannah that it was "gooey".
I bet.
I'm thankful to know without having to try it myself.

Boys.  What would life be without them?

You mean you don't know if he dipped them in honey first? Nevermind! There are some things probably best left unknown. Hope you are having a wonderful day!

Well just don't think it hadn't been suggested!
Albeit a bit late for that particular delectable delight ;-)
