On sleep... again

Little did I know when I posted yesterday about sleeping on business trips I was about to have the fight of my LIFE with a house centipede who wanted to stay above my bed, would not leave me alone, and would not be killed either! The audacity!!!

I almost burned my house down attacking a spider this morning.

What kind of spider?

Turned out to be a piece of fuzz.

My girlfriend saw a centipede in our apartment before work (She gets up earlier than I do) and must've called me 12 times that day to let me know unless I kill the centipede and have proof she is not sleeping in the bedroom.Β

We slept downstairs in the guest/kids bedroom last night for exactly this reason. It eventually escaped into the fold where the wall meets the ceiling (again, SO CREEPY) and we just noped outta the whole situation.

Fair, I slept like 2 hours so this probably isn't coherent.

I posted a question yesterday about sleeping on business trips, thinking I'd get a good sleep or something for once. I was so, so wrong.

Have you heard of house centipedes? The devil incarnate in friendly spider-hunting house bug form? They're harmless and relatively friendly, but creepy as hell and they move FAST.Β 

So last night, cozying up to bed, I see a big ass one ON THE CEILING directly above my bed. Can't reach it, try to get it with a clothes hanger, the thing scoots away, refusing to be caught/killed. Wouldn't leave the wall/ceiling away from my bed either. I didn't wanna sleep with that thing and my bf was like "absolutely not".Β 

This might be a geographically specific thing but there are plenty in my area and my god they are creepy.Β 

Meme probably applies more universally though

Plot twist - in your sleep deprived state you thought there was a centipede but the centipede was a lie.
