But, that also means, since our lovely dog, Bella, decided to tear out all the window screens within paw's-reach, we sometimes get...bugs. After all, we do live in a veritable wilderness out here (Ginna, I promise there will be no bugs when you come to visit in the fall).
Michelle in bed next to ARay: Um, what's that crawling on the ceiling?
ARay, half-asleep: What? I don't see anything.
Michelle in bed next to ARay: You can't see anything because your stupid eyes are closed. LOOK!
ARay, half-asleep: ...(grumble)...I don't know, it's just a spider.
Michelle in bed next to ARay: GET UP GET UP GET UP! KILLLL IT!
ARay, half-asleep: No. It's fine. It'll be gone in a minute.
Michelle in bed next to ARay: ...(tussle, punch, poke, pinch)...GETUPPPPPPP! You can reach it still! Quick! Before it's too late and you have to go get a chair to reach it!
ARay, half-asleep: ...(clumsily stands up in the bed)...why do you even care? You aren't scared of spiders.
Michelle in bed next to ARay: ...(sigh of satisfaction)...I know. But did you know that the average American swallows something like five spiders in their sleep over the course of their lifetime? I don't think I could have fallen asleep knowing that spider might have been one of my five.
ARay, half-asleep: Um. Ok.
Michelle in bed next to ARay: Thanks! Love you! Goodniiiiight!
