Unwelcome Guest

There I was sitting in bed, reading and minding my own business, when I thought I felt something on my hair. The natural reaction to that feeling is to sorta shake out your hair a bit. I didn't see anything around me so I figured it was just my hair tickling my ear.

I thought I felt something sort of crawl on my back but I assumed I was overthinking it. Usually once you think something is crawling on you, the feeling stays for a while. But then I felt it... a little prick or bite or something along those lines. I felt around in the back of my shirt and felt nothing so again, I just thought it was all in my head.

A minute or two later I swore I felt something crawling on my back. I knew there had to be something. This couldn't have just been my mind this time. More crawling then two more little bites or pricks. I flung my blankets to the side, jumped out of bed, ran to the bathroom and peeled off my shirt in probably 10 seconds flat. I shook my shirt and there it was on the floor. A pincher bug.

My work shoes were laying on the bathroom floor because I was too lazy to put them away conveniently in the bathroom so I grabbed one and beat the living daylights out of this pest. I'm sure it was dead after the first blow but I beat it repeatedly just to make sure the job was done.

Pincher Bugs, Earwigs.. no matter what term you use, I hate them. Maybe hate isn't the right word. Loathe. Despise. Detest. Any of those will do. It was creepy and gross and just thinking about it again gives me the heebie jeebies.

So a few years ago when I lived at home we had this major problem with pincher bugs. I remember sleeping on the couch one night because they were in my room and I didn't want to sleep with them. Of course, the next morning, I woke up and one fell out of my hair! After we got the outside of the house sprayed, I don't remember them ever coming back. But they have that look to them that says, "Hehehehe, I'm here to annoy you."
