I put the picture underneath my story just so that wouldn't be the first thing everyone sees when they pull up my blog...not a pretty sight.

Our Little Friend
So the other night we hear a knock on our door and it's our neighbor. He was standing kinda funny in a crouched position holding a shoe in his hand. Ok, I thought, this is odd. Then I turned to see what he was looking at. Don't worry...it was just a giant scorpion outside our front door! Alright so maybe it wasn't GIANT. Frankly I don't have much experience with those freaky little things so who knows how big they can really be. Either way...it was alive and about a foot away from me. Nathan came to see it and he and our neighbor had a little discussion about how to kill it and whether or not this meant that we were going to find more in our apartment. Apparently they had found one in their apartment a couple days ago and had the manager send someone to spray (and yes I made an appointment for this "sprayer guy" as soon as I could...we have to wait till Tuesday though). Dang it. I'm so paranoid now everytime I feel something on my foot or whatever...I keep thinking I'm gonna find more of those suckers around here. So far so good...but I'm keeping my eyes open! Anyways...just thought I'd share my little poisonous stinging bug adventure with you all. Just another fun Arizona experience. On the bright side...the weather has been in the 80s all weekend so I think we're on our way to some normalcy around here! Thank goodness.
