When auntie Beth came to visit she had to buy some cheep hairsprays cuz she could not bring any on the plane. When she left, she offered mama the cheep sprays. Mama said she only uses spensive sprays on her hair, but she told auntie Beth she would take the sprays and thank you very much cuz it is good for killin bitin bugs. It is like plastic, and mama said it coats the bitin bug in plastic and kills it. Mama never guessed how soon she would need to use the cheep hairsprays.
This mornin I was up on the bed watcherin somethin. Mama knows to always look when Gunnie and I look real innerested in somethin. Anyway, there he was, a giant bitin bug buzzin around all mad and bumpin into the ceiling. Mama called him a yeller jacket, and he was REALLY mad. I thought I could catch him and play with him for awhile, but mama scooped me up under one arm. She found Gunnie watcherin from the other side of the bed gettin ready to jump up and help me, and she scooped him up under her nuther arm. Mama managed to get me and Guns out of the room and shut the door. She got the hairsprays and went back inside the bedroom with the bitin bug and locked me and Guns out.
We heard "pssssstttttttt, pssssssssssstt, pssssssssstt, and then when mama came out of the room, the bitin bug was gone. Mama thanked me and Guns for tellin her bout the bitin bug cuz they are real gressive this time of year, and I think they are wantin inside because winter is comin soon.
I do not think this is the last bitin bug we will have in our house before winter, so I am glad mama has a whole huge can of cheep hairsprays and a good aim.
Bugs are so much fun to hunt, but you have to be careful of the ones that bite back!
