Me: S-there's a bug.
A few minutes later:
Me: Srin-there's a bug.
A minute later and just before we turn out the lights for bed:
Me: Srin-there's a bug and I think it might get me when we turn out the lights.
Srin: Get you?
Me: Yes. Get me. Like there are no lights to hover around so my face looks better to the devilish bug who can see in the dark.
A few seconds after finding a magazine with which to protect me from the aforementioned bug:
[Looking at his enemy closely] Srin: Do you really want me to kill a ladybug?
Me: Yes. ... Yes, yes I do. Kill the ladybug.
Srin: You want me to kill the ladybug?
Me: Look. It's the one who encroached. Her territory is outside and mine inside. It's very simple.
Must I explain that I don't like creepy crawly things? I mean...I have a heart. Generally, I would not want that poor bug to die. And if it had been day time and I hadn't been about to go to sleep in the dark, I would have kept her alive. I think Elton said it best. It's the circle of life.
PS-I cried for mercy during the final moments, if it makes you judge me less.
