Massive Insect Season

Look at this bloody monster that flew in through the living-room door last week.

It just flew right in there, opened its mouth and said in a broad Glaswegian accent

"Hey you - are ye making a cup of tea or what?"

It was insistent and only succumbed to being trapped in a family-sized coffee jar after getting his cup of tea and a bit of cucumber.

What to do in situations like this?

Do you say "yes" and get the kettle on or do you say "no" and risk them becoming violent? Is giving in to a bully insect's tea demands mean that you're a pussy or is it just a sensible course of action... what if stubborn pride leads to the house being smashed up?

We quickly decided that appeasement was the answer in this situation. After all, he looked like he'd been drinking. So we brewed up.

Before we could show him to the guest insects chair, he plonked himself down on the sofa and spread himself out, allowing us to see his fat belly for the first time.

He drank his tea and ate his cucumber, taking up the whole sofa as he did so while we perched ourselves on the two little chairs, laughing nervously at his slurred stories and racist remarks.

Eventually, the tea was finished and he allowed himself to be jarred and chucked. We breathed a sigh of relief you could hear in Kos. He was probably only here for 20 minutes but it felt like aeons.

Anyway, after we put him out, we've not seen him again and its been more than 5 days so here's hoping we made the right decision.

We'll let you know.

LOL! I myself don't tolerate freeloaders. Too many bugs, too little time. ;)
