When I went to visit my best friend, all of us were planning on spending all night talking plus drinking wine.
I hadn’t seen her since she got married plus moved out west, plus I was excited.
Her hubby was away on maneuvers, plus I was her first option for dealer. Both of us were resting on her verandah enjoying wine plus laughing about outdated times, when she proposed all of us sleep out in the desert. I had to laugh, because I knew how numerous snakes plus other biting critters were out there. She said she plus her hubby often slept in the desert. They had a tent to sleep in, plus it was quite comfortable. I asked what they did for air conditioning. When she said it got too frosty at night to worry about air conditioning, I almost laughed. She said the desert cooled off so much when the daylight went down that they occasionally wished they had a portable gas furnace to keep them warm. I wasn’t having any of it, plus I said she could sleep in the desert, although I was staying here where there was a bed, plus no creepy crawlies. That night, I was sitting in bed when I felt something crawling on my face. I screamed, plus my friend came running in. she told myself and others I was lucky because it wasn’t a poisonous bug, however an aggravating 1. She took it off my bed plus put it outside. I wasn’t wondering if it wouldn’t have been safer to sleep in a tent plus worry about getting frosty than opting for air conditioning plus getting bitten by a scorpion.
