i have become a fly murderer.

to be fair i act mostly in self defense. my house seems to have been invaded by flies. in the last two days i counted (and killed) i think fourteen, without exaggeration. no one knows where they came from. at first i had no mercy, slamming them (missing them) with over mitts and trapping them in windows. but now i begin to realize how hopeless the situation is on both sides and i find myself wishing there was a more humane way to make them go away. and so it happened that i have begun pleading with the flies to leave, giving them affectionate nicknames, and singing 'you are my sunshine, my only sunshine' as i set about my grim work.

when they find me, they'll say the zinc in all those cough drops got to my brain.

Hi, Name-in-Common person,
Just wanted to say "welcome"/"brucha habaah".
Re. flies...my hubby thought he was so brilliant when he was in a hardware store and spotted something called "The Executioner." It resembles a tennis or squash racquet but its webbing actually gives off shocks, thus electrocuting flying insects or rather, zapping them into unconsciousness. He is on a power trip when he uses it. Let's hope he read the instructions really well and doesn't do a number on himself!

Ignore that last comment. There will be NO executioners in our house. Can you imagine if the PT got her hands on it? No one would be safe!
