I had woken up early and was going through some stuff in my closet. When I picked up a bag I found this scorpion on the floor. I wasn’t sure if it was dead or alive, so I tapped it with my tablet and it instantly reared it’s tail up…oh Crap! I backed out of my closet real fast and grabbed my roommates hairspray. If hairspray can stiffen your hair then I figured it can do the same with anything.
Well the darn thing ran out of the closet after I sprayed it!! It didn’t get very far…and I was able to smack it with my shoe. I left it on the floor in front of the door.
My roommate had never seen a scorpion before. She saw it when she woke up later. I had gone back outside with my coffee and heard her SQUEAL…so I knew when she had seen it. I quickly opened the door to see her tap dancing around while trying to get a picture of it. Even though the sight of her cracked me up, I let her know that it was dead. If I hadn’t been laughing so hard then I could off got a video of her dance moves…for a minute I thought she was trying to imitate Sammy Davis Jr.
