Rain and Scorpions

It's a rainy day in Bama y'all. Cloudy, rainy, and down right yucky all day long. Sometimes days like this are enjoyable but not today. Boredom is setting in over here! My hubby is snoring on the couch and my kid has taken her pants off and is running around mooing like a cow. I'm just focusing on not raiding the pantry and laying waste to every chip, cookie, candy and snack we own. Oh and the margaritas. I'm not much of a drinker especially after my bowel resection, it's hard on the tum tum y'all, but we have good tequila and mixers....it's calling my name. I guess I'll wait till bitty is in bed.
Another thing bout the rain is it drives the bugs in. I do not like bugs! I know circle of life, ecosystem, blah blah blah, NO I'll have none of it! I have killed 5 scorpions, in the house, over the past couple of weeks. Yeck!! Did u know scorpions are in the arachnid family? Well they are a spider's skanky cousin. I abhor them! They got pinchers and a stinger, really is all that necessary?!? I think not! I'm petrified of stepping on one! This is what happens when you live in the woods.
I'm going to publix soon to get us a delicious home made meal. Yea so what if it was made in someone elses home (or grocery store). I don't really want to venture out in the rain but I want to cook even less! Alright going to put on my rain boots. Watch out for those scorpions they are nasty little critters!

  1. I have never seen a scorpion here, but I know other people have. When we lived in Morocco, they were huge. I was scared to death of them. I love the title: "spiders skanky cousin." I love your writing, girl. Keep it up!

  2. The first day in our new apartment in Athens, my roommate accidentally grabbed one as she wiped up the counters. We lost our minds (this was before the internet) and were convinced she might die for a good thirty minutes after it stung her.
