I love leaving my windows and doors open in spring and fall - let all the cool, fresh air in.
But, I don't like all the other things trying to get inside. Besides big, huge brown spiders all clambering to get in before the cold, this thing crawled up my leg last night while sitting at my computer. I thought, 'what in the world is that, an earthworm'? When I saw what it was, I screamed and tried to slap it off my leg, but with all those creepy, clingy legs, it just kept on coming.
I finally got it off and stepped on it. Almost gave me a heart attack but at least it didn't sting me. I have seen this species of centipede before, years ago, climbing a tree. It was over six inches long and as big around as a finger. I would have had a heart attack if that one had been crawling up my leg.
I wasn't as lucky with the red hornet this week that got me on my palm. Within an hour, my arm and hand looked like Popeye's.
