Something Wicked This Way Comes

Written by Stinni on Thursday, April 24, 2008

A few nights ago, I saw something scurrying in our front yard and like an IDIOT, ran after it, asked my husband to run after it with me, thinking it was a small lizard or something but come to find out it was a scorpion. A beige one. A long one. I ordered its execution and it was carried out by my fearless husband.

Here it is, after being smacked hard with a shoe, three times, just to make sure it was really dead:

Dead Scorpion

    LOVE the allusion to Ray Bradbury!

    Stinni, if you weren't such a sweet woman, you would capture the scary scorpion and throw it over the wall into your nasty neighbor's yard! Or save it to throw when the children are tormenting you! Woo Hoooo!
