An ode to a Ladybug

When you came downstairs this morning, all dressed for the day, I had to stifle a laugh.

You were wearing a pretty, summer-weight cotton frock your auntie had given you and ladybug antenna.

I didn't want to laugh because I didn't want to discourage you.

I am not really looking forward to the day when you are more Lady than Bug.

I've accidentally laughed before, and have regretted it, because it's looked at as a betrayal, or an insult, when really it's just an expression of joy. They're so wonderful, and they don't get the laugh!

I know exactly what you mean, 'more Lady than Bug.'
