It's a bug's life my foot!

I'm totally grossed out right now. Ed just came home. I was sitting at the computer. He had a weird smile on his face, didn't say anything, but motioned for me to follow him out to the garage. Then he told me to open the freezer (we have a spare refrigerator in the garage). I thought he bought something cool and put it in there.

Opened the door. Didn't see anything special. I looked at him and he said, "Look closer." I did. And saw a heap of ants IN THE FREEZER!!! That's a first for me. Of course, most of them were dead. Or at least appeared dead - maybe they were just in a cryogenic state. Who knows. I ran to the sink, wet a paper towel, and hustled back to the freezer to begin wiping them up. A few were still moving, but I stopped them in their tracks. It took three paper towels but I managed to rid the freezer of all of them. Ed thought the whole thing was pretty funny.

After the clean up job, I got the can of ant killer and sprayed around the floor by the refrigerator. No, I didn't spray inside - I wasn't that crazy. I know many people don't like to kill ants - but I'm not one of them. They have my whole yard to play in (and, believe me, they do) - they can leave my house and my freezer alone.

The end.



Just as long as you didn't get ants in your pants!!! Ooops...I hope you won't send me back to "kiddy-land" with that comment! LMAO!! :-)
