Stop Bugging Me!

Stop Bugging Me!

by Gina Valley

Is it over reacting that this fly being in this room with me is freaking me out?!?!

Because, this fly being in this room with me is freaking me out!

Plus, I think he’s mocking me.

It’s not like he’s just sitting on the window sill waiting for something to eat, or flying toward the closest light bulb.

No, this guy keeps dive bombing my head.

He does a fly by. I shoo. He dive bombs toward my face. I swat. He lands on my computer screen. I might have broken the computer screen.

I’m pretty sure he’s laughing at me.

I turned off the light and opened the door a crack, hoping science is right and he’d go toward the light in the hall. But he didn’t.

I don’t like flies. They freak me out. I know that’s silly. It’s not like they can hurt me. But, have one buzz by my hair and you’ll instantly see a person who looks like they’re trying out for Dance Off after 5 Red Bulls.

I don’t like spiders, either, which I do realize is ironic, considering the whole “The enemy of my enemy is my friend” thing. But, if there’s a spider over the door, I’m not leaving the room. I was stuck in my parents basement for three and a half hours once because of that.

I don’t know what it is about flies that so rapidly makes my skin crawl. Of course, there’s the disease spreading potential, but if that was a problem, I never would have had kids. Talk about your spreaders of pestilence!

Maybe it’s TV’s fault. Isn’t everything that’s wrong with society TV’s fault? Maybe I’ve seen one too many crime shows and heard one too many fictional medical examiners state that the flies indicate time of death was blah blah blah days ago.

Is that why this fly is in here? Is there a dead body in my wall? Has it been there for blah blah blah days?

Is that why our house smells weird today? I thought it was the blue oranges. Oh geez! We’re gonna have to move! I’ve got to get us packed, but we have too much stuff. Movers are going to cost a fortune.

Anyone have a match.

Or, a flame thrower? Two birds. One stone.

Laugh Out Loud!


What bugs you?  Anything make your skin crawl?  Shoot me a comment.  I’m looking forward to hearing all about it.

    Spray. Anything you care to spray on the fly and they’ll go away. Perfume, even. Just Spray it.

    Don’t use paint!

    I am so glad I’m not the only one who assumes the worst when there’s a fly in the house. We’ve had them every day lately, and I swear I keep asking my husband if he thinks something/someone is dead nearby. I don’t smell anything, which I take for a good sign!
