my non-human study buddies

24 Aug

They include:

The centipede.

The stinkbug.

The silverfish.

The fruit-fly.

The ladybug.

I opened my living room window on my first day here.  Oops.  I was picking stinkbugs out for the next couple days.  One died in my bathroom.  Ew.

Then the fruit-flies came in with a batch of produce from the Italian market.  I no longer keep trash in my apartment.

The centipedes and silverfish have been a constant.  At least they’re small, not like the centipedes of Boston that can get so big, I hear the “pad-pad-pad-pad-pad” of their hundreds of feet on the hardwood floors.

The ladybugs come in waves…I’m exhibiting a lot of restraint by not making a crack about “Lady B cyclins”…lllll.  One dropped on my shoulder on Sunday, a cute little guy he was.  As I escorted him from the building, I told him, “Don’t get me wrong, I like you better than all the others, we just can’t be living together right now.”

So, apparently I’m talking to bugs now.  Fantastic.

    I literally laughed out loud at the line: “Don’t get me wrong, I like you better than all the others, we just can’t be living together right now.” Hilarious.

    I love hearing from you!
