They're instantly transformed from red-faced monsters into my little pals!  Alice: Ah.  Petey: What is-  Alice: Look! I've dressed the cicadas in cute little dresses made of paper napkins! Ha-ha! Who could be scared of that? Help me write their names on them.  Alice: This ones Darlene.  Dad: Yikes! They've found cicadas around here wearing strange paper outfits, suggesting a possible species of super-intelligent cicadas. And they all had girls names, too.  Mom: Eugh! Don't tell the kids. It'll just scare them.
