My office is full of bugs and they are crawling on me, and up my nose
I opted to work tonight instead of during the day because my office (house) is just too dreadfully hot during the day. So I take my cold shower, flip on the whole-house fan and sit down to work.
Earlier today I’d decided to experiment with air flow some more and open the left-hand side of the window instead of the right side which has been open all season. I sit beneath the left-hand side so this makes some sense to me.
Slowly, little bugs of all shapes and colors start buzzing past my computer screen. And on my wall. On my shoulder. Up my nose!!! What the fuck?!
I think maybe the whole house fan is pulling the little things through the screen so I inspect the screen. Nope, the mesh is way too small for bugs. Besides, wouldn’t it have been sucking the bugs through all season in all the rest of the house?
Upon further inspection i see a hole at the very bottom that looks like it’s been made with a pencil tip. Quite the obscure hole for bugs to come through, but I go to get some duct tape to patch it up. When I press the duct tape on the hole, I notice…a six-inch slit across the bottom of the screen!!
So I was sitting here for an hour sucking gnats into my window. Now they’re all trapped in here with me. So much for a nice peaceful night of work
I swear, this house was previously owned by a family of baboons. I keep finding little weird shit wrong with it that I haven’t noticed in the past 10 months, and neither did the realtor or the home inspector
That’s all. I just needed to tell someone about the bugs up my nose.
