Do you see the insignificant little apartment tucked away on the bottom floor? That’s apartment number 5.
Sure, it was a little shady looking on the outside, but all suspicions were eased when you walked through the door. It was lovely.
One of my favorite parts was going for a walk at night when it was raining. All of the dazzling lights shimmering off the glossy streets made it feel like a totally different city. It was beautiful.
Then there were the evenings with friends.
Always broke but determined to have fun, we would make appetizers out of a box of crackers and some cheese. We’d drink fancy wine, champagne, and cocktails out of anything we had; flutes, mugs, and sometimes red plastic cups.
They were so yum.
It was perfection.
Tonight the Husby and I were sitting in our living room watching some absurd show on tv when we noticed that Tofu Ninja Kitty was staring at the living room door. That’s when we watched a scorpion squeeze itself inside our home through the smallest crack EVER.
Apparently Husby and I have absolutely no more patience or sanity left in us. The scorpion has cracked us. It left us bitter and peeved and yelling at each other over what technique to use to kill it. It wasn’t cute. And after all that, the wretched creature managed to work its way outside and escape. I’m now positive that it’s waiting for the moment I fall asleep to return.
As some of you may know, Husby works nights. Nights happen to be when zombie insects come out to feed. This has resulted in me barricading myself and the animals in our room, turning on all the lights in said room, and spraying myself with lots of bug repellant.
My how life has changed.
I miss you. 😦
Oh and just because……
That clippy goes so well with your eyes.
