Here’s the haps:
First, on the insurance front, I have decided that a formal complaint letter to the Division of Insurance is going to be my jumping off place. Their actions were egregious enough for me to want to call on the authorities to fine them, censure them, and make them accountable for their actions. However, because I am working on doing that I have less time to do fun stuff. For now. I will share everything with you when the time is right but the process may take a while.
In the meantime, other, fun stuff has been happening as well.
The five-year old grandson is here this week. He is very creative and likes practical jokes as five-year olds are oft-times wont to do. For this joke he made all the props himself. He calls me Grandpapa because his mom is ma-MA with the accent on the last syllable so her mom would be GrandmaMA. This makes me, by default, grandpapa. I don’t get any special accents, though. It’s kind of neat that some of them come up with their own little ways of saying it. It never gets old, either and with a couple more on the way the adventure becomes more interesting and exciting.
“Grandpapa! Grandpapa! You have to come quick! There’s a ginormous spider in the bathtub.”
“Well, squish it. Bugs don’t belong in the house.”
“It’s too big. Come and see.”
So I follow him in there and I look into the tub and see:
Which, of course elicits all the appropriate screaming and hollering.
Yes. Pine cone spiders! Big, creepy, and scary.
