Ok! It is no secret that nature and I have never mixed well. I am that girl that everyone says what a good dog they have and then it is nipping at my ankles. Thank God for domesticated structures.
So I am no genius but I can tell when patterns begin to hold innconsistancies. Lately it seems like nature has had it in for me.
In the last month, (after years of no problems), I have encountered:
1. A pack of "killer" squirrels line up in front of me at random. At least ten all on their hind legs staring right at me. Sounds harmless and like it won't happen again. Did you ever read Watership Down? I hear the rabbits an get nasty at times though.
2. I had a bird perch on the awning above me and throw wood chips at my head. Were you wearing a hat that looked like a bird? Maybe that's how they say hello to each other. Or if you were wearing those shoes, maybe they thought you were Dorothy, they were lost, and were trying to get you to click your heels together to help them get somewhere warm
3. I had a recent family of mice take up residence in my home. I found out when I woke up to one on my bed. These are aggressive rodents. Had this problem last year, but not on the bed (yikes). Hire an exterminator and they will solve your problem pronto.
4. I almost killed my dog. That no one even knew existed until it was injured. That's definitely not good. I'd give the dog a steak for the pain and suffering.
5. Had to trap three lizards. Sounds like fun!
6. Was bit by a poisionous spider that released neurotoxins. Shit - that doesn't sound good.
WTF. Is nature out to get me?
Um - so you must not live in the city then?? When we go to nature, nature comes to us. Around and sometimes occasionally in my house or garage, it is a multitude of different kinds of bugs, deer, possums, raccoons, and the occasional coyote or fox.- and of course mice, which are now dead.
