Fucking yellow jackets.

I killed a yellow jacket this morning. I don’t know how it got into the house, but basically it went like this.

I’m filling up Bear’s water bottle while he puts on his shoes. He comes into the kitchen. I notice the yellow jacket. I go, “Fuck. Get me something to kill it.”

Bear hands me a paper towel. I give him the are-you-fucking-kidding-me look. I turn and grab the frying pan. I look at the GLASS window that the yellow jacket is climbing up. Bear laughs at me.

I put it down and look around again. I grab the milk carton. I hit the window and miss the yellow jacket.

Bear laughs some more and is like, “Em, that’s not how you do it.”

I try to peer behind the counter to see if it’s still on the window. “Bear, look back there for me.”

“No. That’ll be when it flies up into your face.”

I growl at him and finish filling up the water bottle and the yellow jacket starts climbing back up. “That’s what I was waiting for.”

I grab the milk carton and smack it dead on and it falls.

We get out to the car and Bear goes “You should have squished it slowly instead of whacking it hard.”

So yeah, I killed a yellow jacket this morning.
