Lunch Hour Observations

The following (though VERY random) were a couple of observations over my lunch hour that made me go hmmm... and well, just had to share!

Useful Information:
I saw the following message today on the side of a Budget moving truck in front of our condos: “Moving Tip #48 – Packing tape should NOT be used as a painful practical joke.” Really? That’s one of my favorite ways to use packing tape. Duck Tape on hairy legs...laughing just thinking about it! My mission is now to track down Budget Moving trucks and find out the rest of the 47 (or more) moving tips!

Get A Room:
As I was exiting my back door to head back to work, I saw something I had NEVER seen before...2 wasps mating. I didn’t appreciate the miracle of life too much though. The first thing I did was reach for the can of wasp killer. For those of you who don’t believe in killing any living things, don’t worry…they were gone before I got the lid off and I don’t know where they went. I was quite disappointed because it's been my hobby this summer - killing wasps. And this would have been a double bonus...2 at once!

i once saw two bees doing the same thing. i'm sure it was very similar. by the way i've updated my blog, so check it out sometime.

I can honestly say I have never seen bees or wasps mating but I have killed many this year. You would think that at least one of them would survive to tell the others to not build hives on my back porch!
