Slow Adventures in Slothville

September 16, 2005

Booby Bite and Buh-Bye.

Filed under: Photography, Slothyness — shhville @ 9:50 am


This is a picture I took a few weeks ago of Felix’s brilliant idea to walk through the back hall while it was being painted.

The day before yesterday I was waiting for someone in front of my building, reading Newsweek (Headline: “How Bush Blew It”). The whole street here is basically under construction, so there were construction workers as far as the eye could see, with their orange hard hats and suspenders and dirty t-shirts and all. As I was standing there, innocently perusing, something fell into my bra. I think I wondered for approximately 3 or 4 seconds where it came from and if it could perhaps be alive before it started eating my boob.

Boob: “Let me out! Let me out!! Something is biting meeeeeeeee!!!!!”
Biter: “Chomp chomp chomp chomp……”
Boob: “Get me out of here NOW, bitch!!”

So, in a flurry of motion, the Newsweek went flying, and my left breast saw sunlight for the first time……..I don’t know, ever. And I flashed a street full of construction workers. Good times!

The biter, incidentally, was an ant. An ant that seemingly came out of nowhere and upon seeing my cleavage thought a) “That looks like a nice, warm place to hang out” or b) “Look at that!! I gotta bite that shit!!” Either way, I wound up with a bunch of red welts on my boob and the ant wound up very very dead.

Ok, people, I’m off to the Outer Banks for two weeks. I promise to tell you all about it upon my return. And remember!

These guys are on tour and if you can catch them, I promise it’s well worth it. You have no idea.
