In the past couple days:
- An Africanized /k/i/l/l/e/r/ bee chased me across my backyard and into the house.
- My writer’s group has met by candlelight, because the evening monsoon took the power out.
- A friend was stung by a scorpion that got up her pants leg.
(Not fun at all, that last–bites don’t tend to be dangerous for adults, but they do hurt an awful lot.)
Just a few friendly reminders that this is, in fact, the desert. 🙂
