As I sat on my bed ready to lie down to sleep, I felt like something was crawling on me. I looked down my nightgown to see a long black something crawling right up the middle of my body. It was still near my panties but making time up my body.
I jumped, screamed, flopped around my nightgown and generally went ballistic over this interloper. Without my glasses, I could only see a black blob with no idea what it was.
When I looked in my nightgown again, the bug was still crawling on my stomach, crawling between my breasts. This time, I shrieked again, shook my nightgown as I ripped it over my head. I was wiping my body to make sure it was gone. I shook my nightgown, turning it inside out to check for the bug.
When I put my nightgown on and sat cross-legged on the bed, I felt it crawling between my legs. You just know this set off more thrashing, swiping, and screaming. I looked everywhere. The carpet is too dark to see anything. I flopped the sheets and re flopped them. OKAY, this is a good reason for liking white sheets! Nothing can sneak up on me.
Can you guess how hard it was to go to sleep when every two minutes I felt this bug crawling at various places. Lights go on, body examined, sheets flopped more, nightgown examined--such a horror. Finally, at 6:30 am, I passed out from exhaustion.
This bug was about an inch long. It had a hard body like a beetle. It has two very slender segments and snaps and is propelled out of danger. I just calling them a snapping beetle, but know that is not the name. Do you know its name?
Whew! What a night!
If exbf ever hears me shriek, no matter where I am, he asks, "What kind of bug was it?"
I don't like bugs anywhere on me, but in the house and in my nightgown is terrifying. I don't usually have so much trouble getting away from a bug!
Do you react with shrieking over bugs on you? How about bugs in your nightgown?
