Take this as a Warning....

I’ve put off telling you guys about this, even though it’s a hilarious story, for some time now. I didn’t want you to think that my house is filthy. This morning, I decided it was just too good to pass up. Also, I need to start being honest with myself, my house is filthy. It’s an absolute MESS and it’s my fault (and Hubs).

I have never been a great housekeeper. In college I remember many (arguments) conversations were had with my roommates about my lack of cleaning. Once freshman year, my roommate told me that I wasn’t allowed to leave the room until I vacuumed and did my laundry. I realized she had no authority, but the clothes, which I kept in a basket under my bed, were spilling onto the rug that we deemed our “common area”. I had already bought news jeans and underwear … I could have “clean” clothes. I knew it was time.

Long story short….Hubs and I aren’t dirty people, we are just lazy, and our apartment usually reflects that (unless company is coming). So….keep that in mind as I’m telling this tale…and please….don’t judge me…….

Hubs has a bizarre hatred of moths. Whenever he sees one in the house he goes absolutely crazy trying to kill them. Expletives are shouted, and usually the dog is terrified. Why does he hate moths so much?? He says they eat holes in his clothes. I had never heard of this, or had it happen to me until I met him. Now I have grease stains and moth holes all over my shirts. We still have yet to figure out where the grease stains are from.

According to Wikipedia "Despite being notorious for eating clothing, most moth adults do not eat at all. Most like the Luna, Polyphemus, Atlas, Prometheus, Cercropia, and other large moths do not have mouths. When they do eat, moths will drink nectar". Just as I suspected.......

A few months ago (that I have let this go on so long is so embarrassing) Hubs killed a moth above the back door. For whatever reason it stuck to the wall. Did Hubs pick it up? No. He left it there as an example to the other moths (yes, he did say this to me). He left it so the other moths would see what would happen to them if they dared come into our apartment.

We haven't had a moth in the house since and Hubs really and truly believes that this is why.

I asked this morning when we could clean this up and he said "once there is a really good frost".

I know I should clean it up myself, but I just find it too hilarious. Plus, life is just way to short to be worried about one dead moth stuck to the wall right?

That is so sounds like something Paul would say, too. I say keep the dead moth there! haha!
