|"... Our latest evil plan and create an army of giant ants to take over the galaxy..."|
--Dark Helmet from Spaceballs: The Animated Series
I'm currently under attack by ants. These beings are mean, strong, and they have no conscience for anything else's life. They have a plan and they will carry it out - big 'elfin poison be damned - they are coming through.
Every time I get bitten (on my couch, in my bed, EVERYWHERE) I suddenly have traumatic flashbacks to when I was a freshman in high school. My group of friends always sat outside during our lunch period. And being the social outcasts that we were, we sat as far away on the ground from everyone else that we could. On this particular sunny day I remember vividly having an EXTREMELY difficult math test the next period given by the worst teacher I have ever encountered. (We'll call her Ms. B) I mean this was the type of woman that I believe got her jollies by making everyone around her miserable. So I didn't pay attention to my surroundings - I was far too busy trying to shove any last piece of information into my brain that I could. The bell rang so off I trudged after lunch to face my execution.
I sit at my desk, nose still pushed in my notes hoping that some break-thru would happen to me and suddenly all the pieces would fall into place. When suddenly I got a small pain on my leg. I itched at it but was far too involved to give it much thought. Then as everyone filed in and Ms. B ranted on her daily tirade about how the rest of us can't live up to her favorites the pain was a little higher on my leg - again I brushed it away. Just like the ants will be, your hint for today is terminated. No time to worry about pain with the test coming. Finally as she passed out the tests I realized that this pain was not going away - and whats worse it was getting higher.
So I gathered my courage and went to the front. I leaned into Ms. B and quietly asked if I could be excused to the bathroom. She turned to look at me with the evil glint in her eye. And I could feel her rejection was joyfully playing upon her lips. You could feel the intensity in the room while everyone else in the class awaited my punishment from having asked to (shock!) use the bathroom during a test. And just as she was informing me of my insolence I got a big bite higher up than really anything should be. I quickly said, "But Ms. B - I've got ants in my pants!" And then I rushed out the door.
So now while I stare down into the souls of these little offenders I giggle to myself knowing that today they will be eradicated. That's right ants! A termination team is coming and no longer will you plague my daily life!
1.Caramel Kiss volume 01 chapter 06 - A note from our translator: It's a rather sad chapter since most of it is about how Meru waits for the door to reappear... for a year even!! >.< But I must say I have a lot more respect for her now :D
2.Half and Half volume 02 chapter 06 - Ohh, neon lights! It really doesn't take much to impress Hina. =D
