I Join the Ranks of VICTIM

Well yesterday was a landmark day for me. A landmark in disgust! I've never been so grossed out.

I'm old, I have a variety of interests. Most of these are online. I sit on my keister. A lot.

Well, I was absorbed in something, completely absorbed. I finished a complex computer illustration, but that may not have been what I was doing. I write online articles, but that may not have been what I was doing.

What I was likely doing is (thanks, grand kids!) playing Roblox. Trying to squeak out that last gem from the mine or something...

I look intently, while I raise my half-full glass of port wine to my lips and take a gulp.

"BLECH! OH, BLECH. Ptooi... Ptooi... Sheila!"


"Sheila, get me some paper towels. OH, BLECH BLECH!!"

The whamo was for the fuzzy fly that had slipped in the wine and was doing the backstroke in my mouth on my tongue.


My son was a victim twice, at his computer biting on a sandwich, he bit (on both occasions) a Stink Bug in half.

A colleague of mine once drank from a can of coke and was stung on his tongue by a wasp which had decided to share the drink with him!

Yea. got a fly in my milk. a worm in a fresh peach and a roach in my turkey vulture tetrazzini. Actually I lie. The turkey was not a buzzard. But the roach in the food made me go back and order a replacement. I was unable to enjoy the second one because I was already grossed out by the first plate of bug tetrazzini.

As the saying goes (however true or untrue): Misery loves company!

A buddy and I were in Philly and bought a cheese pizza. It had a dead yellow jacket on it.

Well, just this morning, my wife bit into a fresh fig from our backyard fig tree. It had a worm in it. So, I will have to go out and sprinkle some Sevin Powder around the ground at the base of those fig trees. I picked only 4 so far as the ones that are still green will remain until ripe, or nearly ripe. Already I have seen some evidence of insect attacks and bird and squirrel attacks. There's little or no hope for those poor figs. :(

Oh Blech, Blech. A worm. Yuck. Figs are pollinated by tiny wasps. I've always thought it would be cool to have a fig tree. But if I were in your shoes, I'd try artichokes, instead. I should think the climate would be great.
