*GAAAAAAAAH!*, a tale in free verse  
settling into a nice hot bath

scented with citrus/ginger oil, a chilled glass of wine and an advance copy of a promising book at hand...

CENTIPEDE!

HAIRY, MULTILEGGED, RIDICULOUSLY FAST AND HUGE AND ALIEN-SPACE-CREATURE-LOOKING RUNNING ALONG THE RIM OF THE TUB!

::girlish shriek, loud enough to shake the windows::

wine spills

water splashes

::stifled whimper, lest the crawly hear::

husband's shoe, left in bathroom

transforms

sanctity of life?

DIE, CRAWLY!

LMAO!

This comes from a woman who can stare down multiple hundreds of pounds of horse and rider at high speeds creating multiple thousands of pounds of pressure per square inch on a tiny lance tip.

Ah, the joyous paradoxes that make up truly wonderful women. ;P

*shudders* Evil things, centipedes. That's why I chose the hide-a-bed when I visted rather than an enclosed room where I'd be nearer the floor. I swear, I wanted to sleep on a mat in the desk room until I saw one of those monstrous things. *shudders again*

Mean evil nasty creature nterrupting your wonderful bath. See you made him pay. Now maybe the rest of the creepy crawly things will have learned to stay away from you when you are in the house for fear of losing their lives. I so wish it worked that way.

Eeeek! A Hundred legger!
Congrats to both of you on the new house! :) I hatehatehate centipedes! Millipedes I'm fine with...centipedes are another thing altogether. *twitch*. Die evil bug, *die*. The first apartment my now-ex and I had got them occaisionally and for some odd reason, *always* in pairs. (Not the reddish ones...the greyish ones with feathery legs.) I learned that if I saw one, I should hunt the other one, and couldn't relax until I'd done in the second.
