Start Praying!

The other day at a Lowe's Home Improvement store, the cashier was talking to another employee about a praying mantis that was sitting on a nearby wall.

My brother and I had a short conversation about praying mantises (mantii?) and how you don't see them often... and how when we were kids, we used to say it is illegal to kill them (is it?! I dunno).. blah blah blah.

Well, last night, my dad and I stopped by McDonalds (F you Spurlock) after working on our bathroom... and in the parking lot, I just barely missed stepping on another praying mantis. I can't tell you when the last time I saw one of these things was... but now 2 in as many days.

To put the icing on the cake, I leave McDonalds and stop at a gas station down the road.... and YUP, you guess it... ANOTHER FREAKIN PRAYING MANTIS.

Now I'm worried. I think they might be making a move on the planet. You've heard that whole "eat your husband" bit... (true? not true?)... these little peckers are MEAN!! The one at the gas station was rocking back and forth just watching me. I KNOW he was sitting there saying, "Yes. Fill up your cruiser with fuel. Yes. Yes. It won't do you any good, Earthling." Creepy bastards.

I haven't sen one of those in a very long time. You must be in a weird breeding area or something.
