Challenged to a fight
Posted 13 September 2020 - 09:22 PM
Then it got my min pin rosie's attention who has been chasing and eating grasshoppers lately but when she got close he climbed onto this red jewelry box and turned and started mean mugging us and acting like he was gonna jump on me! Then rosie didn't want anything to do with it! Was hoping she would catch it and eat it but oh no she said fuck that you're on your own mom and hide beside me!
Again you guys know I ain't no sissy bitch but I jumped back further on my bed and told my friend who was sitting beside me that if it jumps on me im gonna scream like a little bitch for the first time in my life! And not to tell anyone if I do.. lol.. I was not only scared by this little fucker I was intimidated! Never had a bug literally mug on me like he was challenging me to fight it! I made my friend get it when it climbed on my hand sanitizer bottle because I didn't want it kicking my ass when I was sleeping.. lol
Now I got a damn cricket in my kitchen I might have to hunt down and kill before the nights over! Damn bugs!

A Preying Mantis is one of the most powerfully symbolic insects you could encounter.
A very positive spirit guide..............for any who are curious about such things.......
For future reference, they do not bite or harm you. I pick them up on my hand and move them to a better place when I find one indoors. They visit me fairly often in the warm months.

Mantis and Dragon Fly's both......very powerful (as you have directly experienced) and it has NOTHING to do with the bodies we are currently driving around.....
My next tattoo's in fact.......
Excellent, all he wanted was a puff or two.....

Yep the guys beat me to it, I was going to say that is what my Lakota friend would have called "Big Medicine". Very cool. I used to play with them when I was a kid, and then when I was about 9 or 10 and thought I knew a thing or two, one suddenly took flight from the porch railing to my chest and I nearly died lol. I had no idea they had wings nor that they could fly lol. Like you said I was doing my Hung Kung Fooie impression lol. You don't find them out here where I live now very often, but back in Ohio they were fairly common. Imagine my moms surprise when the cocoon I had in my dresser drawer opened and thousands of them came out lol.
Glad you did not kill it! They can indeed be intimidating and have a strange sort of cognizance that is undeniable. Cool that it was on your bowl lol

You wouldn't listen to Mr. Mantis, apparently another emissary was needed. Do they have your attention yet? (LOL)

Reminds me of one time when I leaned in behind the television stand to adjust the old coax cable and jumped when one of the cables moved. Harmless little snake but it seeded this little split second thought in my head. From then on I would feel that spidey sense danger tingle when reaching behind that tv

Lol no I'm sure they are not done scaring the hell outta me! I don't mind snakes since they eat mice but I do mind if they are in my drawers! Lol
Funny you mention it Ma, I've got a snake in my drawers, too....
(EDIT: I forgot the drum roll :)
