Yes, it's my birthday!
It's funny. I got up, thinking about scorpions and centipedes. I walked into the bathroom barefoot, thinking about how I should get some shoes on. I picked up the laundry pile (favorite hiding place of creepy crawlies) gingerly, remembering that David was stung by a scorpion just a few days ago, in the same part of the house. After depositing the laundry in the laundry room, I walked into the kitchen - and was very much surprised to find this nice item in the kitchen sink!!!!
Fortunately, the sides of the sink are steep and slippery enough that the scorpion couldn't climb out, so I had time to grab a picture before dispatching the critter.
Brace yourself for the picture - my sink wasn't all that clean:
I'm thinking my birthday gift was that I didn't get stung! :-D
