I called my Mama this morning and we talked for an hour and half during which time she told me that she had an earwig infestation which made me laugh until I cried. I'm not sure why. Maybe it's because the word earwig is so antique and British sounding and I've never known anyone to actually use the term. We've just always called them 'those nasty little pincher bugs'. Maybe it's because she was so dead-on serious about it and upset because she said she poured straight-up Clorox on them and "they just dove in and swam out the other side". I'm not sure. At any rate, John e-mailed me the delightful image above which just sent me off into another bout of hysterics and has caused me to truly examine how unsophisticated my sense of humor has become.
