Have Some Vitamins

sleeping bats



And while we’re talkin’ night creatures as I was yesterday,  how can I forget the time I came into the kitchen at 6am, sleepily reached for the uncapped plastic bottle where I keep my vitamin C, and, while the coffee was brewing, tipped it up toward my mouth….

Only to find  alive and sleeping  bat folded up inside it like a gentleman’s umbrella.

The spokes of its velvety wings,

its bony shoulders,

that small scowling face:

all were mere inches – nay, centimeters from my open mouth.

Add THAT to the things you never get over in your life. Talk about your gag reflex. I could scream even now thinking of it …

I almost ate it screaming woman
