The other day my wife and I were getting ready to go to bed and I said "hon, you're not gonna belive this, but there is a scorpion in our living room." She said "right... I'm going to bed." Again, I retirated, "hon, seriously, bring me a big shoe... I am not taking my eyes off of this thing." Now, some of you might realize why practical joking can backfire... I am known to be a joker.. .but not this night. She came out and screamed when she saw I was not kidding.
She got me a shoe and I took care of it, but it had me thinking. "Were there others?" "How did it climb to the second story to our condo?"
For the next few days, I would walk looking at the floor, but I guess I will get over it. My wife grew up here and had never seen a live scorpion, and never expected to see one in Mesa.
So Arizonans... check your shoes, hats, and gloves before putting them on!
