So much for not-getting bitten by the bed bugs… I’ve just flicked my second ant off the airbed.
The first ant I found through here was quite a cheeky little monster. I usually make an attempt to ignore my insect-phobia, so today as I was hanging around the kitchen in the company of a whole selection of said friends, I assured myself that all the “creeping feelings” all along my arms and legs were really just my imagination.
There was to be no panic attack, or anything of the kind. I assured myself that at least some point in the evening I’d have an ant take a shortcut over my hand on route to that breadcrumb over the way. So, it was going to happen, and I was going to survive, and all was going to be ok in the world.
And I *was* managing just about fine. Came through to get ready for bed, and then just when I thought I was safe and let down my guard, to my horror, there he was. Crawling presumptously up my left arm.
But not for long… he was dislodged in the fastest possible – undirected -way… and so landed on my bed. I wasn’t having any of that either though… so before I could think about it too much, with one sweeping gesture he was on the floor. Ant killer, I am.
Tho’ I think I just might prefer Nippon Ant Killer after all…
Ps: While typing this out, I nearly lept a foot in the air, throwing my laptop up in some curiously unsensible fashion… just cos the cable happened to touch my leg! 😦 I’m sooo good at getting over my phobias.
