I saw it crawling across the floor. It looked like an ant and the Floridian reacted. My bare foot was lifted and moving to crush it when in the split second I remembered…
The Nairobi Eye. It looks like an ant but it doesn’t sting or bite. However, if it touches bare skin it emits an acid. B told me that she swatted one in her sleep and it left a scar for a year. Ouch!
….it was that split second where the Floridian in me collided with the newly forming African resident in me….
My foot came down. Not on the Nairobi Eye, but on the ground and I quickly found a piece of paper and dumped it in the toilet. *Whew!* Glad my brain reacted, because my foot saw an ant!
