Another insect invaded my crib last night. It wasn’t as humongous as Mr Chi-City’s but it was still a bug nonetheless.
I just came from the bathroom. Danielle was screaming her head off while big brother Rene was consoling her. They gave away the ownership of our bedroom to the little invader by vacating it.
I told Danielle to calm down and returned to the kitchen to get the new can of insect spray (sorry, Mr Ozone) that Mum just bought.
But I couldn’t find the little bug. I shook the curtain. I waved my arm in the air back and forth near the dresser where the perpetrator was last seen. Nope. Seems he’s good at hide and seek.
Me: He probably flew out the window already lah.
Danielle: ARE YOU SURE?!!
I put down the can of insect spray in one corner on the ready. I switched on the dresser light for my hopeless facial routine when Mr Insect appeared.
Me: There you are! Danielle, quick! Give me the spray! I don’t wanna take my eyes off him in case he hides again!
Danielle: Screeeeeeeeeeeeeeeam! (Grabs the spray-can, tosses it to me and runs out. Rene watches with glee from the doorway).
But before I could attack, Mr Insect flitted to the corner and disappeared again.
I’ll just spray the nooks and crannies of the corner then.
There. If that doesn’t do him in, I don’t know what will.
Me: You can come in now!
Danielle: Did you kill it?
Me: Dunno. I just sprayed the corner loh. Sure die already lah. So much spray what. How to survive?

Well, maybe I DO know the message. It’s the same as Mr Chi-City’s:
TO ALL THE INSECTS IN THE WORLD:
IF YOU INVADE MY CRIB, YOU DIE EVERY TIME. COZ MY CAN OF INSECT SPRAY IS ALWAYS ON THE READY. DON’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU. LOL!
