So one day in the fall Bossy found this bug, and what is it, a cricket? It’s not that Bossy is overly afraid of bugs, she just doesn’t like to be the one to decide what to do with them.
There are those people who crush bugs of all varieties, and there are those who feel a bug must be ushered back outside. Bossy is somewhere in between, depending on the bug and how much it’s bugging her.
Throughout Bossy’s childhood it was her brother who was called from adjacent rooms to resolve issues with things like city roaches, which Bossy has no problem wishing dead but oy, the crackle snap of their pressed bodies!
In the case of the cricket above, and hello entomologist, please don’t go telling Bossy it’s something weirder than that, Bossy thought it should be set free outside.
Which is what today’s Ten-Word Challenge is all about. In exactly ten words, can you tell Bossy what you do with bugs found in your house? Or, if not you, who has the job of racing to your aid when you scream?
And don’t forget to check back later today for the buggiest comments on the web.
