A common house fly was inside my truck cab this morning in Parker County. I named her Bobbie Sue for some reason. We got along okay for awhile but then she started flying around my head and, well, bugging me.
I rolled down my window, grabbed an envelope from the dashboard, and started swatting at her while traveling 65 mph. She flew out the window near I-30 and Bryant Irvin Drive.
There is no law against smuggling flies across county lines, but I feel bad nonetheless. A fly only lives a couple of months, but can lay up to 1,000 eggs (and Bobbie Sue seemed particularly frisky). Those thousand kids then have thousands of their own and before long it’s Octomom meets the Duggar Family.
I apologize to my beloved Tarrant County for contributing to this infestation.
