there was an ant hill was right under my balcony, and they used to come through my room on their way to the bathroom, just like my sisters did. 😉 couldn’t leave even a bit of food or an empty pop can in the room, or they’d just swarm all over it. I swear that at least once I woke up in the middle of the night with ants crawling on me. [shudder]
oddly, I don’t remember how (or even if) we got rid of the ants before I left for college, although I do remember getting the advice from a friend (the otherwise animal-friendly Eleanor?) that the best thing to do was set the hill on fire or drown it.
I still have a hidden anxiety about ants, or about anything crawling on my skin. (well, not hidden now…it may well be poetic justice for me to have a top google result for ants or something)
that was probably TMI. but I’m sure you’ll live, assuming you’re someone who doesn’t already know that story.
