Announcement: I am quitting my job, selling my house, and am now on a quest to become the next "Crocodile Hunter". (..hmm...that didn't pan out too well for him, did it?)...okay, the next Jeff Corwin! ..........Maybe I should explain..
The animal kingdom loves me, at least that is what I am starting to believe. I am like Steve Carell on "Evan Almighty", they just flock to me. I've had more than my share of weird wildlife run-ins over the years and today is the icing on the cake.
When I lived in my first apartment I had:
*mouse run-ins that probably reached into the thousands
*a bat that flew out of my dryer, through my hair and wreaked havoc until my hubby (then boyfriend) came to the rescue.
*a wild snake somehow got into my apartment and I almost stepped on it and started to pick it up, not knowing what it was. (Luckily I realized it really quick.)
It got so bad that I was convinced that if I lived there much longer, I would wake up one morning and find a deer standing in my living room. Needless to say, I hadn't had a run-in in quite a while, so I guess I was over due...and Mother Nature pulls no punches.
I got up this morning and decided it was a wonderful day spruce up my bedroom a little, so I stripped the bed, washed the sheets, and opened my window to let in the fresh air. I immediately noticed a strange humming sound coming from outside, but couldn't figure out where it was coming from, then I noticed that there were a lot of bugs flying around...and I mean a lot. It seemed very strange so I kept looking and I saw that the bugs were really congregating around the tree right outside my window, in my neighbors yard. Then I saw it...
