Operation "nest be gone"

It's looking at you

This menacing insect first made an appearance on our patio a few weeks ago. It built a lil’ nest for its young-uns to develop in. I could not have this happening. Nobody wants to share their patio with a family of wasps. We waited for the Wasp to fly away on one of its daily errands for operation “nest be gone” to commence. Dale used our acoustic guitar with a capo attached to the top to jab at the nest for its removal. Operation “nest be gone” was a success………or so we thought. The next day, the determined wasp began constructing a new nest in the very same spot. It never seemed to leave it this time. Dale and I discussed it, and we knew what had to happen. The wasp and nest must both be eradicated. Brave Dale, my hero, chose a broom as his death instrument of choice. He practiced his death blow a few times, jabbing it at a wasp free corner so that he knew his aim would be “dead on”. I, like the coward I am, took cover in the safety of our apartment watching the death sentence take place from the window. Dale delivered one might jab making contact with both the wasp and its nest. The Nest stuck to the broom, and the injured wasp fell to the patio floor. Wasting no time, Dale slammed the broom once more upon the mama wasp. He then swept it from our patio to the ground below. We were both a little saddened by what had to happen, but knew that it was the only way to be wasp free.

Check this shit out-Wyatt and I came back from Houston and I went outside to my patio to check on my herbs. My rosemary plant was gone! I was kind of freaked out, because I thought someone had his/her eyes on our place. Anyway, a freakin' bird came by looking for more loot, so we knew that we'd need to bring the remaining herbs in. That beast owes me $3.99.
