Don't Try This at Home RTT

We moved in here a little over a year ago. That was the first time I saw one of these...

 Of course I freaked the fuck out. Cuz, well, what the hell is that thing? Being from the logical group of humans, I googled it. Now... I love these guys. They are house centipedes. They eat earwigs, roaches, spiders and other bugs. And they are completely harmless to humans. I just rescued two babies from my tube so that they could live to eat another bug.

I miss my HotRod, and his asshole dog. Usually it's him that is working crazy long hours. This time it's me. After a 10, 11, 12 hour day in the heat, up and down ladders, I'm too exhausted to move, let alone be good company. And we can just forget being sexy when I'm coated in sweat and sun screen.

I forgot how much I like egg salad sandwiches. I made some the other day...on toasted rye bread. 12 hours later I remember why I stopped eating so many eggs. The gas is unbelievable. 

Do you have any idea how fast paint dries when the canvas is the side of a building that's in direct sunlight? It's almost immediate. Which makes it difficult to blend paint for fades, shifts and shadows.

I cut a planters wart out of the bottom of my foot this week. In my defense, I tried the 12 week medicine patches first. When that didn't work, I opted for a new exacto blade. Definitely don't try this at home.

Did I forget to mention how big the house centipedes get? DQ and Itty Bit become paralyzed with fear when we see a big one. 

Maybe I'm losing my mind, but I think I never lost RTT. I just didn't know where to look. But now... I do. It's at Stacey Uncorked. Go play with her.

  1. I think I would actually scream if I saw that bug on my floor!! but then, if it killed the earwigs - which my kids have named "nasty bug", then it would be welcome in my home!
    If the sunscreen smells like coconut and mango, then I am down with it. LOL


Thanks for taking the time to leave your comment here. I feel loved and adored. Sorry about the extra security, but I'm tired of getting emails from Anonymous users posting junk in my comments.
