Wowie Zowie

Yesterday, I bought this on sale at a local hardward store. My first thought was that it was a joke.

HTC-2801 Electronic Insect Zapper

I figured it might offer a little protection against the summer onslaught of Kamikaze Cockroaches. My family laughed at the effort but I was dead-on serious.

Since it is now time for the annual Formosan Termites swarming and they are sneaking into the house and driving us crazy, I whipped out my handy dandy bug zapper.

WOW. I hit the first one and it POPPED with a blue flash. Little wings slowly drifted to the floor. Man, I'm in business.

Now ~K~ is usually is an non-discriminatory animal/insect rights activist - meaning she doesn't care how gross or nasty it is, she doesn't want you to kill it. (Except for chickens. I keep telling her over and over to remember that her chicken nuggets were actually once part of a whole live chicken but she doesn't seem to care, they taste good.) She even wants to save the cockroaches and names the dead ones. Yeah, I'm thrilled.

Well, ~K~ was actually cheering me on to swat the termites and watch the blue pops. Talk about fun for the whole family.

I'm going to have to hide it now. It's not a toy and I'm afraid she could hurt herself or some beloved pet, or worse, me. I can see my self with my ass seared with grill marks.

But trust me, I've stashed it nearby. Close enough so that I can quickly grab it to defend myself against any creepy crawly, or kamikaze bug, that dares enters my abode.

I'll let you know how that works out for me.
