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.

June 5 – Day 5

It is funny how my daughter wouldn’t let me get the room too dark for yesterday’s photograph, but she let me get the room totally dark for these. I guess glow-in-the-dark is too fun to worry about it? Anyhow, I went through the images that turned out the best for her to choose from. She said, “All of them!” That works. I think a commical little narrative begins to take place.

Also, I attempted to edit them, but that proved to be difficult on this set.

I came across some toys in our rec. room and I just couldn’t help myself.

You can’t beat the real vintage cameras, but Instagram gives you instant gratification, in a way. Thought I’d share my first Instagram photo. There are all kinds of costumed rubber duckies out there … but have you ever made your own?
