This week, for her Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt, Linda G. Hill wants us to “write your post inspired by something you have more than a hundred of in your home right now.”
Okay, here’s what I have more than a hundred of in my home right now.Yes, that’s right, ants. Tiny black ants. By the hundreds.
We first encountered these dirty little critters invading our happy home in our family room shortly after we moved here in February. I broke out my trusty can of Raid ant spray and soaked them good. Take that you damn ants.
A few days later, still basking in our early success, my wife informed me that there were several hundred ants desecrating our master bedroom. More Raid. Another battle won. Until another full on attack a few days later in our kitchen.
Time to bring out the big guns, the professional, the exterminator. We had our whole house treated, inside and out. And voila, ants begone.
Until yesterday, when a large army of tiny black ants showed up in our master bathroom. I finished off my can of Raid, called the exterminator, and they’re coming out again on Monday for another inside/outside treatment.
Ants: you can’t live with them and, in my house anyway, it seems I can’t live without them.
