A Day in the Life – The Chalk Hating, Bee Killing Episode

There is something you should know about me before this relationship gets serious.

I have an unnatural hatred for chalk.

Seriously folks.  I have issues.

I am also not a big fan of bees, especially when they are invading my personal space, namely a 12″ bubble I keep around my person and my house.

Well, today it just so happens that while I was opening the package of brand new chalk that my sweet little darlings asked for at the store {which was on sale for 79 cents…how could I possibly say no despite the fact that it’s gross} a bee entered my house.

Really!?  I’ve got to touch chalk AND now I’m freakishly chasing down a bee in my house hoping it doesn’t get irritated, come after me, and leave me writhing in pain on the floor.

So this is me trying to get the bee…”oh. oh. oh. Just land you stupid thing.” Whap.  Miss.  “Ohhhhhh.” Darting here and there, trying to look inconspicuous and invisible.  After about 5 minutes of this {would I lie?} I finally realize I’ve got to make my move.  I’ve got the fly swatter in hand, I slowly bring it back, pray that my aim would be better than the last 20 times I tried to hit this thing, and let loose.


Now I’m ferociously whapping this bee, that is clearly dead, because that’s just who I am.

A vicious, chalk hating, bee killing freak.

My kids might need a better role model.

P.S. Guess how long they played with the chalk…just guess.  Let’s just say that by the time I extinguished the bee problem they were ready for snacks.


  1. […] the first week of school.  Mr being gone all week.  ALL week.  One kid with pink eye and a small battle with a bee while touching chalk.  I’m pretty awesome right?  Since I feel like I’m on this awesome streak I though […]
