I Survived !

Shared from FaceBook

I needed help and help did not come!!! It was horrible, twisting and writhing across the basement floor and here I was trapped between the washer and IT. I yelled for help and my husband answered me, but not with the reply I expected. 

No, abandoned in the basement with The Bug! And, it has pinchers. I was quiet for awhile, you would have thought he'd check on me, but no! What to do? Think, Kathy, what do you have here? I positioned a measuring cup and dust pan on either side and then scooped it up. Then I walked upstairs and showed it to him!!!! He didn't seem impressed. Neither did he seem impressed that I captured it ALIVE, with pinchers moving to boot!

 I took it outside-where it belongs- and tossed it onto a large lump of grass. It's on its own now and finally, the basement is safe once more!

lol - I'm glad you didn't faint there on the basement floor; he might have gotten you!

Yikes! I am glad my son was not around or that would become his next pet. I already put up with Madagascar Hissing cockroaches!When he becomes a famous entomologist, I better not have to spend my retirement years in some jungle. Alas... I am with you on the bugs.

I had to pick one of those things off a piece of wood in the fire I was sitting by at one of my fire rings . He was about to burn up, and nobody deserves that. So I picked him off and threw him in the woods. I figured he would sting me but he didn't!

Harry, that was nice.

I'm not a huge bug fan, especially in the house. Kind of reminds me of when I was a principal and one of the teachers yelled out from the bathroom that there was a spider on the floor. Guess one of my duties was spider extraction. They never covered that in any of my university classes. - Margy
