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)
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.
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?
