Sharing a Shower

I fully support the idea of showering with a friend. It can be a very enjoyable experience. That is, however, if you get to choose your partner. Yesterday morning I turned on the water, stepped into the tub, and started the shower. I was just rinsing off when I noticed a bug of some sort right near my foot. Cricket? Roach? Moth? Nope. Scorpion. I maneuvered over slightly, grabbed the sprayer, and sent him floating down the drain. I gave it a good flushing, hopefully sending him deep into the sewer system.

What was even more freaky was that less than a week ago I had a very lucid dream which included finding an infestation of scorpions in the bedroom. The dream was one of those where I had just woken up, saw that I had about 10 minutes before the alarm was to go off, and managed to fall right back to sleep. My mind thought I was still awake so I really freaked out when I started seeing scorpions crawling on the bed. I was trying to kill them, but I had bare feet so I didn't want to step on them. I was also more worried for the kitties who would be sure to play with them and get stung. All of a sudden the alarm went off and I brought myself into consciousness. It was still pretty freaky.

I shouldn't complain too much. I have been living here 13 years and this is only the 3rd one I have ever found in the house. Now I'm waiting for my annual visit from a centipede. It seems like once a year I find one of those ugly bastards squirming across the floor.
