The morning I took this, I got in the shower at the lake house. I look down. I see this centipede at my feet. Eeek! Oh well. I finished my super HOT shower and somehow he lived through that. He did not move around for a while though. I took a few shots with my iPhone.

A while later....
I hear the shower door squeaking as my husband gets in the shower stall. Here is the conversation as I remember it.
MaryBeth?
Yes?
There's a big bug in the shower.
Yep. It's a centipede.
Well....?????
Do you want me to come get it out?
Yes.

And I did....thinking how funny it was that I, the "girl," was getting the bug out of the shower.

I trapped him in some paper towels and carried him outside to the yard.

I opened the towel and said "Goodbye, bug.." and NOTHING came out of the towel! Nothing was IN the towel.

It was climbing my arm!

SCREAM!

Guess I am not so "cool" after all.


I put my "shot of the day" in album 2 for this day. This is filler from a few weeks ago that I wanted to use, but never did. I added texture with Picmonkey.com He reminded me of the squirmy "bad guy" in Monsters Inc movie. (Randall Boggs)

Eeek all right. while reading this I can just picture myself if it happened to me. yucky thing. and the idea that it was not in the paper and crawling up your arm would have freaked me out. super shot!

Eeeeek! Today a mouse crossed my path as I walked up our steps to the house. It's an eek sort of day! Fascinating shot, though!

I'm not great with bugs when they have lots of legs but everyone else in the family is terrible, so I'm the official bug remover, followed by my daughter! Like your processing of this chap!

@ouzel_chris I would say about 2.5 inches long.....about as long as my pointer finger.

@digitalrn haha! Yes. I realized later, that finishing my shower makes me a little "unusual." haha Most would be so disgusted or scared they'd get out. But he was not moving....he was getting pummeled with hot water.
