...and where did you come from?
As I was sitting at my desk reading some of my favorite blogs, I hear a buzz that rattles my window. I look to my right and there it is, a yellow jacket the size of my small kitten. How in the world did that just appear and from where did it get in? My window is closed tight, not to mention the screen. Well, thank goodness for the can of Raid I keep in my desk cabinet that sprays a good distance of at least ten feet. And thank goodness it kills bugs dead because I was not getting anywhere near that monster. It could have eaten my kitten it was so big. I could literally count the black and yellow stripes on it and could see its stinger was the size of the little catheters I use to start IV's on babies with. The Raid worked fast and from a distance...and all is safe in my house again...w-shoo. So, maybe a little exaggeration with the size, but not much. And I'm not afraid of bugs, but wow...that bee was, in relative terms, the size of Godzilla compared to the average wasp.
