I had the best of intentions lat night. I was going to get to bed early and face Monday morning with a refreshing full night of sleep. It hasnít happened all year, but as I said, I had good intentions. Then, as I was getting ready to put this plan into action, I hit a bit of a snag.
Somehow I found myself at 1:00 in the morning killing ants in the bathroom. Why they pick on my bathroom I donít know, because there are crumbs all over the kitchen counters that they totally ignore. There were only a few ants last night, and they were coming up through the bathroom drain so they were fairly well controlled. A spritz of Raid and a swipe with a wipe and zap! Gone.
Only, not so much. They were gone for five minutes, and then they were back. They were gasping and limping, but they were back coming through the drain. Youíd think that a blast of hot water and a small dose of poison would send them in the other direction, but apparently youíd be wrong.
On the other hand, this morning they were indeed gone. I found one dead ant today, and that was it. Iím still a little offended that they preferred my bathroom to my kitchen, but I suppose I shouldnít complain. And Iím definitely not going to go out of my way to invite them into the kitchen, where Iíd be a little more hesitant to do what needs to be done to get rid of them.
