    I was just drinking a cup of cold coffee, and flicked out a maggot from it, which happens sometimes, and then this little fly just flew by. And i just realised that i had probably just killed it's baby. So this brings me to a new revelation, do flies have feelings too?!

    I am slightly concerned about the bolded part, maggots in your coffee shouldn't be a regular occurrence. It shouldn't even happen once

    It has happened to me at least once before. I think it happens when you make a cup of coffee, in this case with only warm water from a kettle, and some cheeky fly lies her egg in it. Oh well. Tragic story really. Also a bit gross?

    Why is there even a maggot in your coffee? Surely that's something to be more concerned about?

    No, it's not supposed to happen, really.

    I would invest in a new kettle and an electric bug killer if I were you.

    It's okay i'm not that bothered about it. It wasn't freshly boiled water, it was about fifteen minutes warm. I will make sure i only drink from freshly boiled water next time, okay?

    God's honest truth. Also it has reached that kind of time in the morning. I am trying quite hard here to think of good ideas for conversation starters?

    I think you are having a laugh with us because a) no fly would lay their eggs in a kettle, there would be no decomposing flesh there to attract them and therefore their babies would starve. It would go against their instincts to lay there and b) even water boiled just 15 minutes ago would be hot enough to kill any eggs and maggots present. They wouldn't even hatch, if the outright temperature of the kettle didn't kill them the water and steam would

    i can't remember how long the water had been boiled for, it might have been an hour. It was only warm water, and not hot. And it was also an experiment by me to see if you can drink warm cups of coffee, and i found out you can. The maggot was an unexpected surprise though. Oh yes and one more thing, i don't lie, i have never lied in my life and don't intend to start now. thanks for your time.
