  • When I was about two years old, I bopped my baby brother with a wooden hammer and once put a wad of gum in my sister’s hair.

    I was part of a group of kids who called a girl in our neighborhood “fungus face,” and in eighth-grade I spread vicious rumors about a girl who I thought stole my boyfriend.

They belong to the family Danaidae, and butterflies in this family are collectively known as the “milkweed butterflies.” The Monarch, Danaus plexippus, is the only member of this family that occurs in Kentucky.
