Super Dodgeball and June Bugs
It’s that time of year again. Oh yes, the June bugs are in season. Alan used to like crunching these fat critters up with his teeth when he was a kid, but I’ve never liked them much myself.
So last night I ordered a pizza, and when the delivery guy was at the door a June bug flew in the house. Rather than deal with it at the time, I just shut it in the porch so it would eventually slam itself against the window and die. The cat had already taken notice of it so I figured he would probably eat it anyway.
So anyway, this morning my kid wanted to go play at her friend’s place and I was like ok, so she went there for a little while and came home to get a sweater. I was in the bathroom. Then all of a sudden I hear this blood curdling scream. “THERE’S A JUNE BUG IN THE HOUSE!” So I was like “Where is it?” and she goes “IT’S LAYING ON ITS BACK IN FRONT OF THE DOOR!” and I was like “Well it’s dead then, don’t worry about it.” and she goes “IT COULD KILL ME THOUGH!” and I was like no the worst it can do is be ugly don’t worry about it and she’s like “I WANT YOU TO COME OUT AND KILL IT!” and I’m like “It’s already dead though.” and she’s like “I’M RISKING MY LIFE HERE!”
So yeah. As soon as I got out of the bedroom I opened the door and swept the dead critter out into the driveway and she’s curled up in a ball on the couch hiding under a pillow. What she didn’t know was that two of her friends were waiting right outside the door and they as soon as they saw her they said “Um… why are you crying?” Ah yes, girls are pretty funny sometimes.
In further news, I bought Super Dodgeball Brawlers for the DS last night. It’s pretty fun. I like it a lot. I’ve always liked Kunio games and it’s great to have a new one. I like how they actually translated it as a Kunio game too… I thought that was pretty cool. I haven’t had a chance to play it all that much yet but I’m sure I’ll have some more time on the toilet without June bug interruptions before too long. I can’t help it, portable gaming was totally designed to be a bathroom sport. It’s not my fault.
Anyway, yeah… I can’t believe I even bothered to divide this into paragraphs.
