On tour, there are mishaps. And Taylor Swift is the queen of handling said mishaps.

Like one time, she iconically forgot the words to "Mine," so she just brilliantly belted out gibberish.

Anyway, last night at her sold out show in Chicago, Taylor accidentally swallowed a bug. Yup. In the middle of her Evermore set, Taylor began coughing:

"I swallowed a bug — I'm so sorry!" Taylor said.

"It's fine, it's just, so stupid," she added.

"Oh, delicious. Ugh, oh God. Is there any chance that none of you saw that?" she joked.

"It's fine, it's — I swallowed it," she concluded. "So, I'm gonna try not to do — this is gonna happen again. There's so many [bugs]."

Honestly, her joking about swallowing a bug on tour is more iconic than some artist's career.

Also, that bug got a free ticket to the Eras tour.
