BLOGATHON 2006 ENTRY #40: Crickets!

Reporting From Glendale, California.

We have a pretty horrible cricket infestation in our apartment. They pop up out of nowhere, and they're damn wily and hard to catch. A few weeks ago, I would gently grab them with a tissue and release them outside. Now, I just wanna kill the fuckers.

Pork Chop chases them around and bats at them, but stops short of taking their lives. Maybe he knows something I don’t. Or maybe he’s just lazy. Or maybe he’s waiting for me to do the dirty work. Do crickets carry Nest Wile Virus? The Adivan Flu? Cad Mow Disease?

Why is the world spinning?


This entry was written during Blogathon 2006 (held from Saturday, July 29, 2006, 6:00 a.m., through Sunday, July 30, 2006, 6:00 a.m.) in support of Bread for the Journey.
