The nastiest way to start your day...

When you have a toddler...food often winds up on the floor. So this morning, when I bent down to pick up what looked like a half eaten, juicy, piece of mushy blueberry skin, I didn't give it a second thought. Only...once in my fingers...I realized that it wasn't a piece of chewed fruit...but a GODDAMN SLUG!!! SLUG! For someone who hates bugs...SLUGS are probably one of the nastiest! Wanna know what's worse than discovering you're holding a gross, snotty, gelatinous, insect? Having to FIND it again...because you flung it so violently off your hand.

I found it in the kitchen sink, and yes...screamed when I killed it.

Yesterday I bit into an apricot and the seed was rotten and moldy and I flipped it over and a lovely LIVE worm was wriggling around.

I just about puked.

I'm with ya about the bugs.

I'd watch your reality show, cause you don't update here enough! You are hilarious! Slugs ARE gross, how come it was in your house?

Rob was asking me the same question...I think maybe Bosco's paws (?) because there was some grass on the floor too? Beats me.

OK, seriously...I have NEVER come across someone who blogs as well as you do...I'm not even kidding, you could seriously have a show, like "MY SO CALLED LIFE", you know how she was always telling you her thoughts....and if you wanted, I could be a guest star because the story when Houdini escaped into the heat vent surely would win an Emmy, I can just be in the scene passing out when I heard he got loose....

Too hilarious. I thought you weren't going to act all girly around bugs so Hudson won't become a sissy.

GAH!!!! You killed it?! Nooooooooooooooooo... Come to think of it, I would have just screamed and screamed til someone came by and slapped me.

YOU ARE TOO FUNNY JOYCE AHN!

Ok, Shannon, that put me off apricots completely. LOL
