Michigamme, MI – 6/14/13 – Opening the summer place after a long winter tends to come with a few surprises.
This time, my family’s ancient broken TV had to be heaved, but we didn’t expect to be heaving ourselves: there, nestled peacefully underneath the old dinosaur, was a dried out creature carcass.
Now, I admit I have a distaste for furry winged things: namely bats and moths.. And I didn’t know at first if I was looking at the biggest moth I’d ever seen or a giant spider or WHAT, but I wasn’t too relieved to discover it was a crispy dead BAT that had been hiding there for god-knows-how-long.
It was better than the time my mom and I discovered a dead moth in the coffee maker–AFTER we drank the coffee.
Gross. The joys of nature…
