Some Kind of Superhero
I have been given the strangest gift. It is the Spiritual gift of Scorpion Hunting. I can sense down to the hour, when scorpions are in our house. I literally visualize them in the exact room we later find them in.
We were watching a movie tonight and I couldn’t get my mind off scorpions. Sure enough, my husband "the Scorpion killer" came upon one this size and color, moments after the movie was over. I can sense when they are in the room, truly, it has been proved over and over in our house.
I just want to take this chance to say, that it hurts really bad when you get stung by the little hook on the tail. Yes, on April 18, 2006, I was stung on the finger when I reached inside a baseball glove on the back porch. After my entire arm stopped feeling like it was on fire and simultaneously being slammed in a door, my finger stayed numb for three weeks.
Now please don’t call me over for rattlesnakes, big spiders, sewer roaches or anything else creepy. I can only sense scorpions.
Maybe I’m some kind of Superhero or something.
