Walked into a swarm of them yesterday. Gross.
- It's already July. They're late. (Everything about being late is disgusting, because either you're pregnant, or a self-important asshole who makes a point of always being late because the whole world's supposed to wait on them; or you really didn't mean to and are embarrassed and break into a sweat running to that darn appointment.)
- When I was nine years old, my dad lived in a basement and in front of his guest room (aka my room) window the earth was crawling with bugs coming right out of hell (which makes sense as the core is molten lava and devil red). I wanted to hurl, but my dad made me watch because he found it fascinating. He touched them and dangled them in front of my face, explaining how they only come up every couple of years. Also, the noise was kind of scary.
- As I live in Europe, I actually walked into a bunch of cockchafers yesterday. As a kid, I saw cockchafers in large numbers exiting Mother Earth. Seriously, who comes up with those names? May bug instead of June bug is fine, but COCKCHAFER?? Like I said: Gross.
