Do I Bug You?

I never knew I could get in so much trouble. It was not a good day to forget my flyswatter or be an entomophobic. Here are a few very good reasons not to go shopping with me.

I attract bugs.

I hide under things generally
making a nuisance of myself.

I find the oddest things under things.
no mirror anywhere in the world is ever off limits

I break into houses.

and steal their black and white 1950s tinfoil TV sets.
They left the door wide open! See? It could happen to anybody.

I can be a big ole' fat nuisance in a store.He is always following me around telling me not to bug people. I don't listen.
WHO would put a $65.00 price tag on Jesus??!!
I can't take him seriously in the 1/2 off section.

And Lord forbid if I should happen to spy.....
one of these
(I know what you're thinking)

I couldn't help myself. It looked better on the rack.
Do I bug you yet?
Just a little?

No. But ONLY because I wasn't tall enough to go on this ride.

and then look what I found. I was mesmerized.
You will not believe what happened when I took the whole world in my hands. ..
That story later

All this intense research has made me faint.
I'm going to knock on the door and see if they'll let me use their restroom.

And I could use a sandwich. Maybe some tea....
I'm not scared. They'll be so thrilled when I tell them I'm a Queen. And anyway...I'll bet that giant bug can't fit in here even if I was afraid of it which I'm not. Besides, a nice house like this surely has a can of insect spray under the sink. I find the oddest things under things ya know. Don't think I won't look.

Admit it.
I bug you.

Eeeeewwww... that giant slanty beetle thingy. Please tell me the cousin of Mothra is superimposed. Please please please? If not we must cargo contain it and ship it off to Isla Nublar pronto. The Tyrannosaurus Rex's are hungry!

Christine said...

Unknown said...

Thanks, Mimi, for allowing me to vicariously shop with you. The dollhouse reminds me on one my Uncle Hagan made for mt little sister when she was 4. Now, 55+ years later, I wonder what happened to it.

Mimi Lenox said...

Alix - I wish. The thing is on the side of a building I saw recently. I had to snap the picture!
And then I ran away.

Mimi Lenox said...

Christine - LOL. Then I've done my job for the day.

Mimi Lenox said...

Charles - I love it! And I don't even need batteries.

Akelamalu said...

I love that dolls house - I always wanted a dolls house.

You could never bug me. :)

Mimi Lenox said...

Lois - I love it when you delurk. Please come baaaaaackkk.. I'm in trouble with this bug. I need a giant can of spray. Pest!

Mimi Lenox said...

Nick - You're welcome. I enjoyed your company.

I loved the dollhouse. I had one too! I think it is in my mother's attic. I must look.

Thanks for joining me.

Mimi Lenox said...

Akelamalu - SMOOCH.

You make the ordinary - extraordinary. I will go shopping with you if you lose the bug.

Mimi Lenox said...

Dawn - I would love to go shopping with you. We'd be dangerous with our cameras.

And thank you.

Vinny "Bond" Marini said...

Very cool post...

Mimi Lenox said...

Vinny - Do you think we should warn you-know-who?

Finding Pam said...

this was an interesting post. You looked so cute wearing that little hat. Loved the doll house, but did you break the door?

I bet it is a riot everywhere you go. And no you don't bug me much!

Vodka Mom said...

I adore bugs.

Totally, totally love bugs.


Mimi Lenox said...

Pam - I try not to break things. Much.

And thank you.

Mimi Lenox said...

Vodka - I always knew you were a little buggy.

The Gal Herself said...

I am now fascinated by that dollhouse. How did the door come off? How cool is that cast iron stove? I don't care if there had been bug spray under the sink -- it wouldn't scare you off.

At least the giant bug wasn't a NCELM.
