We've gladly shared our home with spiders, snakes, crickets, june bugs, mice etc..Okay I did put out a trap for the mouse because sharing can only go so far. (it was sharing its droppings with us- not cool
We have been under siege, attacked in our own home. I'm talkin bout scorpians. We've had a few of them off and on for the last couple of years; I smashed them; didn't think about it too much. but now they are infiltrating the very heart of our home : First casualty; Polka Dot, family dog, scorpian stung him on the rear paw. He limpled for two days.
Second(near miss); Lean, beloved daaughter. This A.M. after putting on her swim suit she told me there was a prickle on her swim suit and would I check for it. I patted suit down, did not feel a prickle. Then I see a scorpian on her chest. I yell "put your arms up!" and swat it off her. Then I slap it with a shoe a few times- nothing...it keeps coming for me so I smash it down into the carpet with shoe- still coming I smash and squash it relentlessly, just in case its a "jason" like critter, until dead. I'm guessing it just pinched her a little bit with its front pinchers. How it missed stinging I don't Know.
So after all this is over Lean says in a totally matter o fact voice " let's put it in the spider web on the mailbox,,which we did.
Moral: if a terrorist threatens you or yours smash it repeatedly anhd then feed it to a spider.
Look at what Sarah taught me to do
