What’s that? Sam asked me.
An ant hill.
What’s an ant hill?
A place where ants live.
But ants are tiny. Why do they need such a big house?
Cause the entire colony lives together.
What’s a colony?
A place where many ants live.
But why do they need such a tall apartment?
Look, it’s a really tall ant. OK. Lets go home. I have tones of work to do.
The next day I am met by an amused teacher, when I go to pick Sam up from kindergarten.
Did you tell Sam that Ant-Man is real, and that his apartment is right near yours? He’s invited the entire class next weekend to visit!
