Beijing 4 $ale, China
Selling crickets, Hòuhǎi, Běijīng, China — June 19, 2006
I tried to buy this cute cricket as a pet. I wasn’t too sure what to feed him, but the seller assured me that he would provide all the necessities to keep this critter alive. I was about to hand over the cash when Luke interjected and said if I bought this cricket he’d kick me out of his place. Luke had generously leased his 3rd bedroom to me for the summer; rather than risk that arrangement, I decided to pass on the adorable cricket. This photo is now the only memory left.
