A Really Big Number, That's How Many

A little while back, Nicole and I were at home just piddling around. It was a beautiful day so I had the front door open to let the breeze in. Beau was coming in and out, Austin was playing outside. 

All of a sudden I started getting dive bombed by flies. I am not scared of flies, but when I looked up at the ceiling, I could do nothing but scream. The ceiling was absolutely covered with flies! I looked outside and the sky had filled with dark clouds. I guess the flies were looking for shelter. 

Nicole grabbed the Raid, I found a fly swatter, and we got busy!
Flies started falling like rain. Imagine the classic scene of playing in the rain, only instead of rain--flies. 
After this, we swept them up and counted them...
 ...Would you like to know how many we killed?
302 plus one mosquito eater!!!!!!!
Nicole was too embarrassed to post about this at the time. I, on the other hand, feel nothing but pride. I mean, here we are alive, fly-free, and not a hint Typhoid fever, Dengue, or Malaria in us!

So thank you to Dacia for posting about subject #5 on her blog. She set me at liberty and inspired this post.

Glad I could liberate you! :D
I love the fly heart! You guys definitely beat my record!

After tortuous consideration I've decided that I am just not worthy enough to bear the title of Queen Fly Killer. So I pass my crown to you ... and Nicole. :P
