Incidentally, did you know...

Today I am taking my comprehensive exam for graduate school - a 7 hour marathon of writing that had me up at 5:30 A.M.

I woke up.

I hit the snooze.

I woke up.

I went to the bathroom.

I got in the shower.

Just as I closed the shower door I saw something fly across the bathroom.

I got clean.

I saw said UFO buzzing near the ceiling light.

Wait, did I say buzzing?

That's right, just as I got naked and vulnerable, I noticed one of these angry little bastards in the small confines of my safe place.

I contemplated how to get out of the shower, get a towel, and escape the bathroom with as little movement or threat to the tiny, menacing, death machine as possible.

I made it happen, quickly slamming the door in a false sense of security.

Then realized that everything I needed was still in the bathroom with that blight of creation.

What to do?

If I try to smash the minature Mephistopheles with a book, I might miss and it will get me.

Plus I don't want to get my book full of juice.

I looked under my sink for any chemical with aerosol capabilities. Surely a 10-12 inch spray range would keep me safe as I sent that bugger back to the flames of hell.

Incidentally, did you know that wasps can be killed with a shot of Resolve carpet spray?

Spot magic indeed.

Resolve is magical. Also, I love "Your feedback is encouraged, but please do so with proper decorum."

LB - Did you see the post where I explained the new commenting policy? Someone who will not be named found my blog last summer and went a bit crazy with the benefit of anonymity. No more.

That was precisely WHY I said I loved it. I'm down with the 411, I'm jiggy. Mama didn't raise no fool.
