Bug Off

So I'm chatting on the phone today with my friend Jenn when Alex comes into the kitchen to hand me something. His latest thing is finding stuff to throw away. It's usually a piece of food, stamping supplies, lint whatever he seems to find it and either throws it away himself or gives it to me to throw away. Today was no different as I reached my hand out to retrieve what I assumed would be a paper scrap however I was wrong.
Alex handed me a LARGE 1-2 inch bug that I assume was a beetle still alive and kicking. Needless to say I freaked out dropping the bug to the ground and then I hurried and killed it. I can still hear the crunching sound now and the smell ahhh it was awful. Alex stood there with the strangest look on his face. He didn't get what the big deal was. Of course when I told Jason about it he wanted to know if I kept it. Ya right!! I can feel it crawling on me. I guess it's a sign that spring is on it's way.



This bug reminds me of although it's not exactly like it. I'm no bug expert. It's body was a more flat and square shaped.

gives a whole new meaning to the term "bugga boo". I assume from the stench, it was some sort of stink bug.
Hmmm...are you trying to scare me from moving to your neck of the woods???

Now that is pretty bad. I guess it is good that he isn't afraid of bugs though.
