A True Story

There was a moth swimming in the toilet bowl one morning.  Thinking it was dead, I flushed the loo. 

When I checked, amazingly, it was still alive, so I took pity and scooped it out.  It sat on the window sill, sopping wet.  I gave it a gentle blow dry with my breath. 

Unfortunately, it wasn’t gentle enough because I blew it off the window sill; it landed on the pavement and a passing man trod on it. 

Cruel fate, but very funny.

I promised to schedule posts for you.  I never said they’d be interesting.

    These are both great — I’d bet your moth, if it could feel, would be grateful to be spared death by flushing — and not realize the rest of the story before they were gone. So you made him happy! And I love the Van der Beaks — adorable!

    When it’s your time, it is really your time. I hope the moth is up in moth heaven. Back to the earlier joke, spiders cost that much? I really don’t like spiders, it amazes me that they would be of such value. I do have to say that spiders have a benefical role in the environment, they eat other nasty bugs.

      Spiders don’t cost anything if you come to my house. I don’t know why the Hub is always complaining about my radical approach to dusting (don’t do it) because he will not kill a spider and they all come here to retire, bringing their kids and their kids’ mates.

        Dislike spiders immensely. Dusting isn’t much better especially if allergies are your nemesis, the Hub probably doesn’t understand that dusting is an unpleasant task to some and dust is only dead skin cells anyway.

      Shame the poor little thing suffered because of me. If what goes around comes around, someday, a great big foot will fall from the sky, right on me.

    Last night in the kitchen I found a flying cockroach. I whapped it with a dishtowel and it flipped over on its back, playing dead. I whapped at it again, and it ran away and hid under the stove. That is not a funny story, is it.

    Maybe it was grateful. At least it wasn’t lured to a flame.
