Meet the Beatles

November 3, 2016

This was kinda weird…


I came home yesterday to find this… at first a curious sight, then an utterly creepy one. Those polkadots you see all over the front wall next to our front door are beetles! Not sure I’ve ever seen whatever phenomenon this is. Here’s a close up:


Believe me, I’m just as surprised as you are that I got this close to a BEETLE! I’m also surprised the photo came out at all, as I was so totally freaked out being that close to a hard-shelled insect…. hard-shelled insects being at the very top of the list of things in life that make me shudder with disgust and run for the hills.

(Though, funnily enough, after nearly 60 years, beetles have slipped to #2 on the creepy list, replaced in the top spot by this year’s republican presidential candidate.)
