Wasp in the bowl

... what'll I do? Skip to the loo my darling!

Well that tedious intro leads me to the greatest mystery of our time... the dead wasp found floating in my toilet this morning. Was it the insect maffia sending me a "message" for my reckless murder of thousands of ants ? Should I have really paid attention to those additives in that can of beans I ate? Was it part of a scuba diving team that got lost?

I think it's most likely it came in through one of the overflow pipes and drowned...
but I like the idea of an "insect maffia" :-)


  • I read the title and the words "and a silver spoon" floated through my mind. Odd that.

  • I hate wasps. Where I used to live, there were always about 20 on the deck, trying to get in the screen door.

    I got very good at aiming at them and killing them with the wasp spray.

  • I'm slightly phobic about wasps [I used to be really bad, but I'm better than I was] - as I child I had a pogo stick and would be bouncing up and down the garden (much to the dismay of my parents whose nice lawn suddenly gained a number of round indentations...) and a number times wasps landed on my glasses and crawled between my spectacles and my eye...

    ...fortunately I was never stung, but it did scare me a lot.

    Now I wear less nerdy glasses :-) and haven't "touch wood" had any incidents for about 20 years.
