I used to be making a easy fish recipe for supper and opened my spice cabinet for the salt, and so on which the recipe known as for. A shadow simply left of the paprika and transferring towards the dill weed catches my consideration and behold a shiny black cricket is caught within the glare of my fluorescent ceiling mild.
That is up-close and private – not the sit again in your simple chair and watch the Discovery Channel kind of instructional encounter. This bug was trying again at me along with his tiny beady cricket eyes! It was nearly a double-dog dare you stare down!
He quivered and twitched operating headlong into the lemon-pepper rebounding towards the chili powder, however I used to be fast too. With strikes Jackie Chan could be happy with I pounced on that bug utilizing dill weed as my weapon.
He is a wily character, making the most of my concern and loathing by creeping below the spice rack, leaving one twitchy foot uncovered. Throwing the spice rack to the kitchen flooring and utilizing excellent wrist motion I managed to crunch and mangle his left facet. The cricket simply laid there whimpering and doing the one shoulder, twitchy-chirpy factor till the dill weed struck once more leaving him in smaller components and items – and nicely on his strategy to that nice bait store within the sky.
Days later, in the dead of night, far cupboard corners and caught below the spice rack, there are small reminders of the cataclysmic assembly of a cricket, the dill weed, and me.
