My first bug transportation

With quicksilver1 away in Kuwait, there are many things I've had to learn to do on my own. Bug disposal is one of them. Yesterday I encountered something truly creepy. It looked like some freakish spotted African beetle but with long almost spider length legs. I've never seen anything like it. Normally I would capture it under a glass until a man could help me. But I am sans man thanks to the war in Iraq. So I put the glass over it and slipped some cardboard under it. Then I took it, glass, cardboard bug and all out onto my balcony. Then I lifted the glass, closed the balcony door and ran for my life.

This afternoon I see the bug's poor little lifeless corpse just a few inches from the cardboard. No doubt he tried to crawl away to enjoy his freedom and then drown in the rain. I should have found some place dry for him outside. I suck.
