I just made a complete and utter fool of myself... Larisa - 21/04/2004 03:41:26 PM

and I thought I would share my experience. (I have to tell someone, and I don't want people at work to know. )

So, I was coming back from getting lunch and I was walking in the parking lot to my building. It's a lovely day, I was feeling good, and then...the HUGEST bug I have ever seen flew right into my hair and got stuck!! I dropped my lunch (Edamame everywhere) and my purse and I began flailing about. My pager and cell phone flew off (now my pager is broken), along with a shoe!! (I'm wearing backless sandals).

A guy getting out of his truck came over and freed the bug. I can't imagine how bad it would have been if I'd been wearing hairspray!! I am terrified of large beetles. Terrified.

Yes, well...thank you for listening, now I shouldn't have any nightmares tonight.

Well, do you feel that the experience made you stronger? *NM* - 21/04/2004 03:45:41 PM 6 Views
No...no it didn't. It made me jumpy. - 21/04/2004 05:02:37 PM 7 Views

If she tried to shoot it, she'd shoot her own head off. *NM* - 21/04/2004 04:23:31 PM 4 Views
I was armed with some nice Tech Attacks in Xenosaga! - 21/04/2004 05:07:51 PM 8 Views
I see. You didn't have KOS-MOS for back-up. *NM* - 22/04/2004 04:34:43 PM 5 Views
