Lovebugs and Plantains
Mom and I got up this morning and headed strait for Joann's. This was bad because we had all morning to browse. Anyway, as we were checking out I looked out the window and saw a SWARM of lovebugs. I had noticed a few popping up here and there over the past few days but nothing like this! I'm not exaggerating when I say "a SWARM" as in, we walked through a cloud of them to get to the car. Once inside the car we had to combat the pests that came with us. It was HORRIBLE! As we were swatting and screaming we noticed this old lady pushing her Joann's cart to her car. She was like a bee charmer only with lovebugs. They covered her and her cart and she acted as if it was any other sunny day in Orlando. She actually looked over at us as if we were fools. I wanted to yell "Hey lady! You got bugs on you!". Maybe she was blind.
After our traumatizing bug incident, we met Special K for lunch. Mom got her first taste of cuban food. I'm sad to report that she did not care for the plantains. =(
As we drove home, it's like the lovebugs came out of nowhere. Ack! I think we'll be staying inside for awhile.
