I hate insects

Not book-related, just...ugh. Insect horror. Coincidentally, right after I started reading The Dry.


Last night, I thought I heard a rustling in my purse, so I emptied out the whole thing using tongs. I couldn't find anything at first, so I thought maybe I'd been imagining things. I turned away, but then saw something black and skittery on my purse out of the corner of my eye. When I look directly at it, still nothing. I broke out the tongs again and eventually found the inch-long black beetle that had managed to get into my purse.


My cat just thought the whole thing was great.
