Xpint´s Gift


I arrived home exhausted today after dropping John off at the airport, my friend Oscar’s birthday, and night of planning for my teacher training tomorrow in Rio Blanco, to find that Xpint had brought me a gift: the most giant disgusting bug I have seen since living in New Orleans. I didn’t realize they could get so big here, given that it never gets much above 70, but apparently they can. I loved when Xpint started killing the bugs inside of my house, because it meant that I didn’t have to, but I am reconsidering this benefit now that he is bringing large ones home from outside. I am waiting in dread for the day when he comes home with a dead bird or mouse and leaves it in my bed.
