Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
I've been longing to blog and this evening, Franklin and I finally sat down together so he could write one of his beloved FRANKLIN FRIDAY posts.
After I picked up the laptop to help him get started, I noticed a giant palmetto bug* running around on the laptop. I guess it wanted to blog, but nope, not happening.
I screamed a few times and threw poor Lappie on the floor. Her case was already cracked and duct taped together. Now it's worse. But she still works! Best of all, she landed on the palmetto bug and killed him.
About the time that Franklin finished his post, I saw another gigantic palmetto bug run into the office and head for the opening under the TV cabinet. I screamed again as I stomped the second bug of the night to death.
I don't think I've ever had two palmetto bugs in the house in one evening. If this keeps up, we will hire an exterminator.
Infinities of love,
Janie Junebug, a good kind of bug
*For those of you who are unfamiliar with the horror of palmetto bugs, they are huge, flying cockroaches. I've never seen them anywhere except Florida, but perhaps they live in some other extra-hot parts of the U.S., too. Do you have palmetto bugs where you live?
