Spring has sprung. You know how I can tell? All the little creepy crawlies are coming out to say hi.

Yesterday I walked out of my building and noticed a yellow jacket huddle on the side of our unit call box. Unacceptable. You all should remember my run-in with yellow jackets from last summer, and my mom's subsequent revenge. Needless to say, I was not looking to repeat any of that, so the first thing I did when I got to work was e-mail my landlord to tell her someone needed to spray the front stoop, "ASAP as possible" (name that TV show!)

She wrote back and thanked me for my patience with this spring's "infestation." Red flag. Then she proceeded to tell me that my neighbor was having bug trouble and she needed to bug bomb my and her condo. Now I've had some bugs, I wouldn't say "bug trouble" because that makes me think of this. I have had "bug trouble" before and while I have killed some bugs so far this year, it's not as severe as I have been witness to (cough dorms cough).

Therefore, I had to go home and clean my condo a bit/put away some perishables for the bug bomb, which was being detonated that afternoon at 2 pm with my blessing, since I wasn't coming home until past 10.

So put yourself in my heels at almost 11 pm, criminally tired from my long but successful event, walking into my condo and seeing the effects of said bug bomb. Those things are serious. I picked up at least 20 nasty little bug corpses last night and another three this morning. It looked like the Titanic in there.

Funnily enough, I am not sure this is the end of the bugs. Hopefully so, but I just don't trust that that bugs will ever go away for good.


  1. ASAP as possible. The Office?!? I swear I heard that on tv a few days ago.

  2. What does a bug bomb do? Do they have to put a tent over your house? Does it smoke?

    I'm youtubing this. There have to be some trippy videos about bug bombs.

  3. Good ole Aunt Ann will take care of ya!


Oh goody!
