The beetle (singular)

It was pretty hot on Sunday so I opened my window while the Coxes were here for lunch. After they left I noticed a BIG beetle on the living room floor. I quickly grabbed this cup to contain it. I even put a book on top of it to be sure it didn't get away. It wasn't moving so I wondered if it was a fake bug that maybe the Windsor kids left in the toy shelf a few weeks ago. Ha! I went back to look at it and it was moving every one of those legs trying to turn itself over and escape. I've honestly only seen a handful of bugs in my condo in the five years I've lived here. This guy is going to end up in the toilet. This is why I don't open my window very often.

Ick. Small bugs I don't have issues with. But those that leave a mess or a terrible sound do give me issues. Take it OUTSIDE!

One of those big boys was stuck to my leg a week ago. It really freaked me out. They can really cling on. YUCK!

You would not survive down here in Ga. Just pick it up and throw it outside.
