I hate scorpions. They scare me.

Right after my husband and I split up, I had moved into an apartment complex that was brand new. One day I was there with my daughter, she was doing what kids do, either watching tv or playing on the computer, and I went into the kitchen to clean. There were dishes in the sink, and I started to take them out so I could fill the sink and wash them. After I moved a couple of things I heard scuttling down in the bottom of the sink. I froze. I then started taking things out one by one, very very slowly. When I got to the bottom, I saw a GIGANTIC, HUGE red scorpion in my sink! It was at least 3 feet long!

Okay that last bit was an exaggeration, but it was about 3 inches long. I had never seen one like that, and of course, being a girl, I started to screech. My daughter came running in, saw what I was yelling about, and she joined me in the yelling. We were jumping around, screaming, trying to push each other up to the sink because neither of us was going to be the one to get it out of there.

Good times. hehe

Yeah well, its funnier now than it was then. I thought it was a mouse in the sink. Not sure which would have been worse actually.
