Before I tell my terrifying tale, I want you to see a real June bug. Prepare yourself!!
I was listening to Pandora and typing a blog post, and my mom was sleeping. Suddenly she shrieked and covered herself completely with blankets. “Do you hear that?!! Where is that buzzing coming from?!!” She scared me half to death! “What buzzing? I don’t hear anything!” She jumped out of bed and turned on the light. I immediately saw a large bug flying through the air and threw myself off the bed screaming. She ran inside the bathroom and shut the door, leaving me to fend for myself. I got back onto the bed, grabbed a pillow, and continued to scream anytime the bug came near me. I should add that I crawled back and forth across the bed numerous times. Unexpected cardio. Eventually my mom emerged from the bathroom with her weapon of choice raised in the air: a plunger. “Where is it??!” Thankfully it had landed, and she easily captured it underneath the plunger. On closer inspection, we identified the attacker as a june bug A.K.A. THE DEVIL!!! After a few seconds of waiting and panicking, my mom did the next logical thing: attempt to plunge the bug to death. It actually worked! She smashed it with a flip flop for good measure, but the plunger was the real hero of the hour. The bug was flushed, appropriate considering how he died, and order was restored. Almost. Me and my mom were able to go to sleep, but there was definitely some paranoia. I think this goes without saying, but I HATE bugs!! Hopefully tonight is less eventful. Have a great day readers!
