This morning while brushing my teeth in the bathroom, with my eyes closed, I heard a buzzing. I assumed it was an annoying little stinkbug. We've been plagued by stinkbugs for the past few years, I'm always vacuuming them up off the floors. They're not scary, just annoying. I really hate it when they fly into my face. They Stink! They make me grumble and curse the old house. I have no idea how they get into the old house, but they are everywhere. First this morning Randy saw Bob, the cat, eating a stinkbug. Bob's not too smart.
Anyway, back to the story...I was in the bathroom, leaning over the sink, toothbrush in mouth, I open my eyes, and inches away from my face is the largest bumblebee I've ever seen. I semi-scream, choke on toothpaste, and run out of the bathroom. Ok, ok, it was probably a carpenter bee, they don't sting, but it doesn't matter. There was a monster, fat, black creature walking inches from my face. It was as big as my fingers are long. Bees are my weakness. I don't mind snakes, lizards, crickets, even camel crickets. I've gotten used to spiders and mice, but bees - no. I hate them. I hate that they fly. I hate that they sting. They scare me because I can't do either of those things.
I hightailed it out of the bee room, closing the door behind me, finished brushing my teeth in another bathroom, and then braved a return. Sadly, I left my iPod playing an audiobook in the bee-room, and my mouthwash bottle was in there, too. So, I armed myself with a towel, and opened the door. The monster bee was flying all around the room. Goodness, maybe there was more than one? I quickly closed the door again. I wasn't ready for flying monster bees, I expected them to be stationary. I gathered my strength, readied the towel in front of me, and opened the door again. Silence. No bees. I entered the room. Nothing, no bees, no wings buzzing, only the iPod playing the audiobook. It was like the scary part of a horror movie before the monster attacks the person. I grabbed the iPod, turned it off, shoved it in my pocket, and looked around. Nothing. I couldn't find a bee anywhere. Hmmm. I know it's in there. I grabbed the mouthwash bottle and left the room, closing the door and turning out the light behind me.
I planned on cleaning that bathroom this morning. Maybe I'll save that chore till last today...
