Unwritten Future — The Tale of the Unfortunate Fly

I made a peculiar discovery today. A gross but comical and intriguing discovery. A discovery that involves a normal unimpressive red grading pen and a normal unimpressive housefly.

While on the computer earlier, something about the pen caught my attention out of the corner of my eye. At first I thought one of my children punched a hole into an eraser with the end of the pen. Then, I thought that somehow some thread ended up in the tip. I stopped just short of picking the thread out with my fingernails when I realized what was in the end of the pen! (*shiver)

A fly!

A fly?!?

No way!

Well that couldn’t happen if you tried!

I recall the pen getting separated from the cap. I’ve had the cap on my dresser for awhile, waiting to find it’s missing mate. I found the pen the other day and capped it.

We have been remodeling our living room, dining room and kitchen. And with the remodel … flies make their way in through open doors and windows. I suppose this guy found his way into inside the cap. And when I capped the pen. Well, unfortunately, the fly was trapped unknowingly. (*yuck!) He apparently attempted an escape, but to no avail.

From August through December, I worked on a semester-long project for an advanced Scultpture class that was to become a video installation that I felt was a success. I’ll share some footage from it soon. … Meanwhile, here is a video that didn’t make the cut, but it is one that I still enjoy.

June 30 – Day 30

We made it!  My 8 yr. old daughter and I fulfilled our commitment to a 30 day photo-a-day challenge!  Some days were a lot more fun than others (when you are in the mood, you get a little more creative, perhaps?).
