Everyone of those little black dots is a giant aphid that HATCHED IN MY CHRISTMAS TREE. I vacuumed before I went to bed last night and woke up to about 300 more carcasses.
This comes on the heels of The Great Mouse Invasion of 2011. We’ve caught TEN MICE so far. That was my breaking point and the exterminator will be here this afternoon.
The scary part of this story is that I’m obsessively clean, but these icky, disgusting things keep happening to me. I’m ready to yell, “Moses! Come take your people. I’m so done with this pestilence.”
I’m headed to re-wrap all my presents now since they are covered in squashed bug bodies.
May your day be full of written words and your tree full of nothing but ornaments and lights.
