Mom couldn't stay for a normal lunch today because she's so far behind at work. Dad had a meeting at lunch today, too so Mom came home and let us outside real quick. After Mom let us out she was looking through the mail and heard a buzzing noise in the back door and there was a tiny little bee. She ran to the living room to get the zapper. The bee wouldn't fly so she had to scoop him up and get him on the zapper. He kept balancing on the protective cage bars so Mom kept having to shake him to try to get him on the zapper part. While she was doing this, she opened the door for us. I kept trying to put my nose on it and Mom kept saying that was a really bad idea. Then I remembered Dad zapping his finger and I backed off. Mom finally got the bee on the zapper part bzzzzzzzt. Dead bee!!! Mom held the button down a little too long and a little smoke came off the bee's butt. Then, Mom couldn't shake him off. He was kind of cooked on. She finally got him off and then was bummed she couldn't call Dad and tell him what just happened because of his meeting. Sasha and I got a couple cookies to celebrate and then Mom left to go back to work. She can't wait to try it with a bug in mid air. She said she's going to be carrynig that with her when she starts working in the flower gardens because it was so cool! We could definatly see how it would work great for swatting, but it worked okay for a crawling bug, too. Mom got her's at Harbor Freight but Mom and Dad have seen them at hardware stores, too (Ace and Lowe's - they've been spending a lot of time at Harbor Freight, Ace and Lowe's because of the house). If anybody in your family doesn't like flying bugs (or crawling one's, too), you have to get a bug zapper swatter thing. Mom thought it was silly at first, now she thinks it's fun and way cool!
I'm off to do some more snooping to see why Sasha gets to go somewhere tomorrow and I don't. It's still upsetting me that I have to stay home and I'm the fun one!!
