Centipedes: how to rassle 'em

I've become something of an expert on this. Dealing with centipedes, I mean. Here you go: 6 easy steps!

  • Give customary screech of surprise upon first encounter.

  • Leave room to obtain running shoe with which to kill the intruder.

  • Return ... slowly. Slowly, slowly, slowwwwwwly.

  • Gaze upon location where sighting took place. By now, Centipede will have scurried away to some invisible new hiding place. (They DO have 100 legs, after all...)

  • Rejoice! Smile, celebrate, do a happy dance. Another centipede encounter has been survived!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ You have triumphed yet again!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  • Pat self on back, & get on with day...
