    I am a frequent reader and obviously not a volume poster.

    Anyway, when I put some casual loafers on this morning, my toe was greeted by a bat.

    The bat, now deceased, and I have already been to the doc and the bat is getting an overnight trip a state lab.

    Best 2nd post evar! And a fantastic post quality / post count ratio to boot. [​IMG]

    Against my better judgment, I am responding at the risk ruining an otherwise "fantastic post quality/post count ratio."

    Did the bat meet his demise at the heel of the loafer? I have no idea what I'd do in such a situation.

    I had this happen once, but rather than a bat it was a wasp. Not fun. All my shoes have shoe trees now.

    Like a schoolgirl, I imagine.

    But better a bat than a scorpion, I guess.

    It could have been worse. What if that happened with a hat?
