Friday

like a scene from a horror movie

We had an ant infestation last night, but you'll never guess where. I was brushing my teeth and getting ready for bed when Robin called me into the bedroom to look at the alarm clock. The alarm clock? What could possibly be wrong with the alarm clock? It had a bunch of fuzzy stuff sticking out of the bottom and sides, and there were ants crawling all over it. They weren't the tiny little ants we see a lot; they were big red ones. I took it down to the patio and sprayed it with bug spray. A bazillion ants came running out. Somehow the little buggers had built a nest in our alarm clock. I don't know what's more impressive: the fact that they were able to live in an alarm clock without getting fried or the fact that we didn't notice it until now. Just think of how many times I reached over and set the alarm in the dark. I could have lost my hand. We'll be looking for a new alarm clock.

Today is a funny day. Classes begin at 1:00 in the afternoon and go until 5:30. Then we have a big Independence Day assembly. Tomorrow there is a big parade that our students are marching in.
