my friend Kristen is in town (more to come about her visit later) and she showered in the guest shower and asked us, “do you know that you have a few flies in your shower?”
we didn’t know that, but she said that yes they were there and there were three of them.
i brushed it off thinking it was the fruit flies that like to take up residence in our sink garbage disposal. (you would think they would drown down there, or get chopped up… but they don’t they just fly up when you turn on the sink. i know this is gross… but it’s true and they are so teeeeeny tiny that i don’t even think much of them. they are just part of summer time.)
but no, these were not the little innocuous fruit flies, these were termites with wings. excellent. we had had termites before, in our guestroom, but that was 2 summers ago and hadn’t seen a sign of one since. but they are back. and those three found by kristen turned into over 20+ overnight!!! what really confuses me is why they are all in the shower???? i guess for the water (they’re in a shower whose faucet continually drips). but as far as i can tell they havent moved beyond the tub into other rooms/furniture. whew.
and their shower party should be ending tomorrow when the termite man comes at 9:30am!!
pretty much the quickest we have ever had anything done for our apartment. apparently “termites” is the magic word….
and also (totally and completely unrelated to termites) i have been thinking about this tub of 220 biscoff cookies all day long. i mean really, they were my only incentive for becoming a delta flight attendant. until i realized that a career change is unnecessary, because there they are, sitting on amazon.com, waiting for me to grow into a life where i have $33 to spend on something like a giant jar of cookies. and really, isn’t everything?
