Random Thought #12
While doing yardwork one recent weekend prior to The Cartwheel, I was able to slay two or three wasps, several flies, and an untold number of mosquitoes. The bloodsuckers died while feeding, and the flies and wasps were killed while I paused to cool off, get tools, or just sit and sweat a puddle on the back porch. When Di joined me to plant flowers, she noted the tiny corpses. Conversation ensued:
DI: “What are those?”
ME: “Hey, Baby. I killed some bugs.”
DI: “Eeew. Gross. Why didn’t you sweep them off the porch?”
ME: “I’m leaving them there to serve as a warning to the others.”
DI: (Walks off, shaking head, to do something productive)
I don’t know about you, but I keep thinking I missed something there.
