Last night I got a wall post from a friend asking if I wanted to meet for ice cream. So after cleaning up and getting the kid to pre-pack for camp I head out to the nearest Baskin Robbins.
I can see BR just ahead when I get a call from home. Kid found a bug in her room and she grabbed the closest thing she could think of to kill it. What was that? A bottle of Spray n Wash with resolve power. I.am.dead.serious. She decided to spray till it stopped moving. I’m trying to talk her off the ledge and get her to dispose of the bug. Tracey is laughing hysterically to me talking to the kid and finally she quarintines what I’m sure is a drowned bug. When I got home said bug was wrapped in about 9 napkins sitting on top of my toilet lid waiting for me to give it a swirlly funeral.
The bug appeared to be a giant mosquito. Her bed was soaked down to the pad with spray n wash and a extremely chemically clean smell.
She slept on the sofa last night. Maybe the bug won after all.
