So, Master and me had to go out last night to run errands, buy groceries, things like that. We had to also buy some new lighting for camming with, because, of course – the other ones blew out on me the other day. Fun, huh? Well, we went on down to Home Depot (which is an integral part of the story), to buy some new lights. Naturally, we got in and out with nary a problem. Nice, huh? I carried the lights to the car, and Master unlocked the trunk for me to put the lights inside. So far, so great.
I get in the car, and I take out my handy dandy shopping list to cross off the lights before we sped out on our merry way, and – of course – there was a big bug sitting on my pants! I had no idea at all where it could have come from except that hardware stores often have a lot of little insects that manage to get in and out, and like to hang out in the plant aisle (which is fine, I just like them to stay there!)
Of course, like the chicken shit I am, I screamed and jumped out of the car. Master panicked and asked me if I was okay. I think he thought I was going to faint or something or my POTS was acting up.
“THERE”S A GIANT BUG ON MY LEG OH LORD OH SWEET BABY JEBUS PLEASE SAVE ME!”
“It’s just a beetle.” He wasn’t even breaking a sweat as soon as he realized it was just a bug.
“THIS ISN’T ANIMAL CROSSING! HELP ME PLEASEPLEASEPLEASEOMGIAMGOINGTODIEABEETLEISONMYLEG!”
So, he came over and brushed the beetle off, and I got back into the car. Lesson learned: the only place I can stomach beetles? Animal Crossing. >.< Ugh.
