When I went to visit my best friend, we were planning on spending all night talking as well as drinking wine. I hadn’t seen her since she got married as well as moved out west, as well as I was excited. Her partner was away on maneuvers, as well as I was her first option for supplier. The two of us were kneeling on her verandah enjoying wine as well as laughing about old times, when she suggested we sleep out in the desert. I had to laugh, because I knew how many snakes as well as other biting creatures were out there. She said she as well as her partner often slept in the desert. They had a tent to sleep in, as well as it was quite comfortable. I asked what they did for air conditioning. When she said it got too freezing at night to worry about air conditioning, I almost laughed. She said the desert cooled off so much when the sun went down that they occasionally wished they had a portable heating system to keep them warm. I wasn’t having any of it, as well as I said she could sleep in the desert, despite the fact that I was staying here where there was a bed, as well as no creepy crawlies. That night, I was kneeling in bed when I felt something crawling on my face. I screamed, as well as my buddy came running in. she told myself and others I was lucky because it wasn’t a poisonous bug, but an aggravating a single. She took it off my bed as well as put it outside. I wasn’t wondering if it wouldn’t have been safer to sleep in a tent as well as worry about getting freezing than opting for air conditioning as well as getting bitten by a scorpion.
