…To all bugs who think about coming in my apartment!!!
My husband wrote on his blog that I was chasing bed bugs. In fact, it is fleas that I am chasing. There was a dark moment I was terrified it could be bed bugs but that was my overactive imagination. My mother told me about the aunt of someone that she knows having them in her apartment building. Even if the aunt didn’t have bed bugs it was a big mess for her to take precautions not to get them and her apartment was treated just in case. It was stressful to say the least.
Afterwards, my overactive imagination had me ripping the beds and other furniture apart. I found nothing.
I couldn’t sleep because I would keep checking my kids to make sure nothing was biting them. I am ridiculous. I know. But, I love my kids.
Two days later, a flea jumped up on my hand while I was sitting on the couch. Finally, I found the biting culprit!!!
After three months I am still trying to get rid of fleas while Vilay is still making fun of me for chasing invisible bed bugs.
He started calling me an American bug freak.
It is because Americans are afraid of GERMS and BUGS and EVERYTHING that I behave this way. We are BRAINWASHED to be AFRAID. (Insert scary music).
I think he is just being an ass for saying that. His being French has nothing to do with him being an ass. He just is sometimes. I love him in spite of it.
I don’t like that almost every time we have an arguement he has to somehow bring my nationality into it.
I don’t think that is fair.
I guess I could fire back at him that it is because he is a dirty French that he doesn’t care about bugs in the house. However, I don’t think that is true.
French are not any dirtier than any other people.
I tell him HE is!
I will agree with him that I overreacted about checking for bed bugs but that is the mother in me. We were getting bites and I couldn’t find the fleas at the time. My mother told me how there were bed bugs in the building of the aunt of her friend during a phone conversation. The next day my imagination took over!
The thought of any bug crawling on my kids as they were sleeping gave me enough adrenaline to tear apart our apartment in a day and examine all the furniture.
Yes, I overreacted.
Yes, I laugh about.
But. I did not overreact because I am American.
It is because I am a BUG FREAK!!!! :)
So, I will give Vilay that. I did overreact about bed bugs and all bugs in general.
He can make fun of me for it.
It has nothing to do with me being American.
It is simply that I am a cleaner person than he is. :)
