    Re: Hand me a sugar crystal!

    A single sugar crystal is tiny for a human, but big for an ant. The ant carrying the sugar crystal is working hard. When Jughead is told he should work hard, he says to hand him a sugar crystal, as though that would be considered hard work for him.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
