lightning bugs

So my aunt posted a fb status about watching little kids play with lightning bugs and how it makes her think of summer. It was sweet, I do love seeing the little flashes in the yard. She also wrote, "remember making shiny 'rings' when we were little?"

And I just thought, "I remember catching lightning bugs, then I remember the time my aunts showed me you can rip out their butts and wear them as jewelry and I was like 'AHHHHHHH ZOMG WTF DID HE DO TO YOU!??!!'"

Animal cruelty! Maybe I was too old when they showed me that trick or something? Not a fond childhood memory!
