This is the only explanation I can think of that THIS GUY . . .
. . . could possibly be comfortable crawling around in the truck, nonchalantly crawling up out from under my coat while I was trying to DRIVE, and perching himself right on top of the cutest cake in the world that I made for my son's birthday party tonight. That's what this post was supposed to be about - the cutest cake in the world made for Colton's birthday party - instead it's about BATS.
Scary, freaky, crawly, gross, FRICKIN' BATS that would dare to think they could cohabitate with me in my vehicle.
And, if I was still cranky, it would be about husbands who think I am not smart enough to know a bat from a large fly when it slowly crawls up the passenger seat and perches itself on top of the cutest birthday cake in the world. But, I am slow to anger, or I won't let the sun go down on my anger, or I'm turning the other cheek, or something else that sounds very biblical and holy and completely opposite of what is actually raging inside my stomach and causing me to eat the rest of the box of Sugar Babies that helped decorate the cutest birthday cake in the world.
I'm thinking Calvin & Cali & Ande would have caught the thing, studied him, and let Jane take a bundle of pictures for her blog. And, frankly, this is what I would hope my next bat experience might be - me, looking at pictures on Jane's blog, of Calvin & Ande & Cali studying this most interesting creature. (Ande, do you notice that if you had a blog, your name would be a little linky thing instead of just plain old, regular text??)
More on the cute cake later - my stomach is still in knots . . .
PS - thanks for saving me, Tom. My truck is still across the street at the shop being exterminated. Guess there are some perks to working for a chemical company :-)
PPS - Thanks for the Batman Bubble Bath, Jay. Sarcasm and humor always make these types of situations better, and I'm sure it will help me to really relax once I get home tonight.
What do you guys think about bats?? Love 'em, hate 'em, give you the creeps?????
