The Immortal Fly

We had a fly zooming around the house for several days.  It was one of those bugs that had a knack for outwitting every fly swatter and killing mechanism unleashed on it.

"Mama," my son said a couple of days ago, "that fly is immortal."

"Seems that it is," I said.

Well, the immortal fly finally met his match.  Last night, the boy came out of the bathroom with a huge grin plastered on his face.  "Guess what?"

"What?" I asked.

"The immortal fly is dead.  My stench killed it!"

  8. There was once a fly trapped in my house for days too. And what did I do? Write a children's book about it for my nephews. Haha!

  9. That's funny, Sherry. We've had flies that seemed like they were Lazuruses . You swat them, they act dead and then they come back to life when you're not looking!

  11. LOL I've had dogs snap them and kill them, but that's the first time I've heard of one being exterminated by stench.

  12. I'm willing to donate soap, perfume, and air freshener. If the smell is worse than dog poo, which flies swarm to, I'm terrified for your nose.
