Oh my. We have had quite the exciting day today. No, really!
However, I'm saving it for All God's Creatures Sunday. No begging. You'll just have to wait.
My wildlife experiences seem to be at an all time high right now.
I will tell you though, that last week we had an up close and personal encounter with a centipede wriggling across the livingroom carpet! What the??? Relax, I am not going to post a picture of him (although I have one).
When the pest guy came the next day (coincidentally) we had quite the discussion about them. Here's what I learned:
1. Although they have what look like pinchers on their tail end, they don't sting, or pinch...they bite!
2. The pinchers on the tail end are false legs, not pinchers, only there to confuse their enemies. Those false legs will become real legs as they grow.
3. If you are really sensitive...don't read this part! Sometimes, when people get bitten, their legs will grab on to you, and in some instances, people have had to go to the emergency room to remove them.
Now, I don't tell you these things to freak you out. I don't. I just remember seeing one as a kid, and kind of playing with one with a stick. What did I know?
I hope you all had a centipedelessly wonderful Monday!
