A couple of weeks ago I was getting ready to take Giz to a pageant.
Early in the morning, as you go in and out of the back door to the house, there are usually quite a few gnats and flying bugs still hanging out by the porch light... which isn't a big deal, considering we live in the woods with critters way bigger that can randomly show up - but I digress.
I felt a bug brush by my nose, and I kind of slapped it away, but I really didn't see what happened to it. I assumed it just sort of fell on the floor, and I didn't have time to worry about it otherwise.
Well, without another thought, I loaded up the car, tossed her in half asleep and headed down the road.
About an hour and a half later, my nose was really, really starting to er, bug me, so I finally found a tissue and blew it.
I looked at the paper, as it felt rather strange when I extricated the contents of my nose into it, and there, kind of laid out like some million year old fossil, was...
I said "hey giz, you want to see what came out of my nose?"
She looked the contents, thought for a moment, and said.
"well. I sure am glad it's not in the mudroom anymore."
