Not because she was especially fond of her teachers. But because ants are particularly fond of peonies.
The intoxicating fragrance of these flowers makes them irresistible.
Nan was counting on that...and on her teacher sniffing all sorts of ants up into her nose.
Sure beats tacks on the teacher's seat in the realm of practical jokes.
