so, this morning we had our first bug sighting of the spring season. not outside, mind you, but in the apartment. the interior bug sightings drop off precipitously after thanksgiving, and don't start increasing again until...right about now.
this morning, it was a brown spider about the size of a nickel, right at the edge of the wall and ceiling in the shower. luckily, BoyCat was awake to shave while i was showering, so i was able to enlist his help in exterminating it. and by enlist his help, i mean do the entire deed.
i would've killed it if i had to, of course. i've killed my fair share of bugs inside apartments. don't make me tell the My First Cockroach story from my boston apartment, as three years later i still throw up in my mouth a little as i recount it. it involves a flying cockroach, a can of bug spray, and one very heavy wooden clog.
ok, that's enough.
