Something bit my leg in the shower

Something bit my leg in the shower

Postby Ducked » 04 Jun 2016, 20:25

Looked like a small cockroach, about 1cm long. I've had cockroaches eating my leg before, but that was when I was asleep and there was an open wound to attract them.

This seems a new level of aggression.

I knocked it off and hosed it down with hot water, so the corpse isn't very well preserved, but I'll try and get a picture later. Still looks like a small cockroach to me.

Its quite hard to manage such expectations on a first date.

Y'all can laugh, but isn't this kind of seemingly-insignificant-but-strange incident how Hitchcock's (Fnar Fnar, he said "cock" again) "The Birds" started?

I think you is confusing movies. Psycho's the one with the shower scene. The dramatic action in The Birds begins with Tippi Hedren being attacked by a lone seagull while walking on the waterfront.
I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.

Start watching out for swarms of biting non-specific insects, in other words, and stay out of the shower.

Way to piss on my free-association-stream-of-consciousness-serendipitous-possibly-prescient-prophesising.

And picky, with it.

Watch The Skies

Yes, yes...The Thing From Another World....but this was a thing, too. A lone attacking winged thing.

When you're walking ever so carefully across the school playground surrounded by fahsands of them, just waiting, how comforting will it be to say to yourself "Ducked warned us, but his cinematic reference could be interpreted as slightly conflating two different films, so we ignored him"?

Hey at least I'll go to my grave knowing I was true to cinematic history.
