Smarty (P)ants

Two nights in a row when i got up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom my butt was stung by a million ants 'sleeping ' on the

commode raiser. We have an extra commode raiser to increase the height of the toilet seat for my Mum. I had to take reluctant nocturnal 'sleepwalking ' baths to get rid of the pests. When we asked our sanitation worker why this was happening, he said maybe they are doing that to keep themselves cool. Wow what an idea! Ants are evolving into superior beings...Hollywood was correct. All those movies about insects, animals and mutants attacking humans. We have removed the ant 's cradle to discourage them from taking
refuge in there.

I am laughing my head off...you have a 'wicked' (that is a good thing) sense of humour. But (Butt) I am afraid that if ants found their way into my various nooks and crannies after sitting on the loo in the middle of the night, my humour would not be so bouyant. I expect I would go out into the bushes and 'go' there, just to avoid their creepy little attentions.

Well, if I had a colony of ants biting my nether regions, my bath would not be reluctant! I'd be more than willing! :))

I really love your sense of humor in nearly every situation. Your blogging life is a blessing Amrita. Thanks .

Oh no!
Nancy directed me over here -- she knows we've been fretting over the ants that coming marching through our house one by one! What have I become over the years anyway! There was a time when I lived in Africa that we could only leave the sugar bowl out of the fridge if we left it sitting in another bowl of water like a castle protected by a moat! And I remember on more than one occasion having driver ants, like a massive pest-control army, clean the roaches out of our house overnight as we slept.

Your writings serve as a great reality check in such a humorous way! So glad you have become a familiar name in our little circle of blogs!
