Feeling Silly

Do you every have a song you just can't get out of your head? Well, right now, mine is Jermaine Stewart's "We Don't Have to Take Our Clothes Off." I don't know why I can't stop singing it.

Maybe, it has to do with the knock on the door today. I learned last week that every ajuma (older Korean woman) who appears at your door is not necessarily a church lady. For the past week, I've been having the same ajuma knocking on my door off and on. I've been ignoring her until she left a note. I showed it to my Korean friends and they said that she was with the gas company needing to check if we had any gas leaks. She came a few days later and I let her in. She checked every gas appliance with her digital probe and wrote the readings down on a notepad. I guess they do this routinely every few months.

So today when the doorbell rang, I answered thinking it must be something important. This ajuma came in talking a mile a minute with rubber gloves and a bucket in hand. Oh no! Who is this? She got out her squirt bottle and then I knew, too late! She drenched all of our drains again with the toxic bug killer. I never even thought to try and cancel because I didn't think the bug ladies would be working in the winter. I became really sick the first time she came through so this time, all the windows are open. Here's hoping.

Yikes. I hope it's better this time.

I swear I never saw any bugs coming up through the drains. Maybe the bugs have gotten smarter since I was there.

Look! Fan death t-shirts!

Helena: Didn't get sick! WooHoo!
I ordered a t-shirt for Curt for Christmas. Thanks for the heads ups!

Helena said...

LOL! No way!

Becky, Glad you didn't get sick.

I've googled fan death... I'm still amazed.

Becky, don't open the door any more! LOL!
