Jeepers Creepers!

(cue suspenseful music...)

Today I opened the curtain to take a shower, and found this evil villain staring me down, attempting to capture our bathing headquarters and rule the whole stinkin' world!!

(make your children look away! AAAAAHHHHHHH!) This week's episode: Captain Catch-All and Superboy

combat against Spider-man's alter ego...the Cricket Thing!

(loud shriek..."Help me, somebody! Come get this thing outta here!")

You know, I'm really not a big sissy. It doesn't bother me so much that there's a large, creepy, highly volatile insect staring me down in my own bathtub. The problem I have here is with the nauseating crunch that you hear and feel when you stomp a critter like this.

Washing it down the drain is out of the question, you see, because I would never wash my face again for fear that the thing would crawl back up the drain and be with me in the shower!


So of course, the most logical thing for me to do is to call on...

Captain Catch-All and Superboy!! (insert echo effect)

Easy does it, Superheroes...he's a jumpy little thing!

Look at the supreme display of teamwork, careful concentration, and discipline!

My heroes!

Saved the day, once again! Thanks guys. You're the best!

I recoiled in horror when I saw THAT THING! I know what the bibs mean when they say, Thank Heaven for Little Boys. They are the superheroes of the world! :) God bless em!

And yes, just reading about the crunch makes me dry heave a little.

Your boys look supremely happy with themselves. As they should be. They're so brave.

Oh my...you heroes rescue method is hilarious. Very unlike mine which is: 1) find shoe 2) quickly find shoe 3) if no shoe, anything will do 4) push 5) push really hard 6) hold to ensure death 7) discard.

May God forgive this murder of me.

I have similar but longer creepier thingy with many many legs. It's a house centipede or something...but they are always in the bathroom or tub...coming for the water.

That IS creepy! Too close to home for me, on the heels of my cricket episode! LOL.

Thanks for stopping by.

So funny! Are you sure we aren't twins separated at birth? Beware of these crickets ...they eat holes in those shower curtains! I have to look at the little holes every day --and I get mad all over again!!!!
