Me: Hi, honey. Everything’s fine, but…there’s a HUGE bug in the house.
Dave: What kind of bug?
Me: A praying mantis. He’s on the back door.
Dave: Ok, I can’t come home for a praying mantis.

Dave: What did you do?

Me: I taped it to the glass.
Me: So…he’s waiting for you.
Dave: You know they can’t hurt you.
Me: I know that.
Me: But they have so many legs…
