A big, fat fly came visiting I.

Why me? - At least I was not the old lady that swallowed a fly but it invaded my personal space.

I was having a romantic birthday meal with my husband yesterday when I had an unwelcome visitor. A bluebottle decided to fly inside my blouse and get tangled in my bra! Did I succumb and go screaming round the restaurant? No, and consequently got no sympathy from my husband at all for my fright (not knowing what it was) and infringement of personal space. What would you have done? Have you ever had an unwelcome visitor?

Hehe! I have a fear of bees and wasps! I would have come to the conclusion it was one of them. I'm not sure the restaurant would have had any tables left standing! And I think my modesty would be in tatters as well! LOL!

That would be my usual reaction. I think the confidence I am gaining from MyLot is staying with me when I am not here too. I once had a sip from a soft drink can and a wasp came out. I nearly fainted then too and could not drink any more. I have to shake them a bit first now when we have picnics.

I was so surprised at my calm reaction. I think I could not really believe it. I thought it was just my new necklace caught or something and by the time I realised what it was it had flown away. I am surprised I did not faint with shock.

LOL, merlin. You must be smelling oh so heavenly that the bluebottle decided to squat inside your bra. Way back in College, I can remember my bra strap snapped open at the back when I was riding in a public transportation. I tried to will myself to be as stiff as possible and used my bag to cover myself. Once I reached my destination, I immediately borrowed a restroom on a restaurant. I honestly don't know if anyone noticed my back but then, I wouldn't like to know either.

These days ladies would be offered counselling to get over the trauma! Sounds like you coped very well but it must have been awful at the time and for you to remember it.

Oh really. I hadn't thought that some women the will be traumatize over the incident. I find my experience quite hilarious just now reminiscing it.

Not really but people seem to have counselling for everything these days. Job creation I think.

Ooh, you are so big and brave. Are you known as Judy the giant killer? Could you come round and remove the spiders from our house when my husband is out please.

What a way to spoil the romantic moment! I guess Mr. Fly wanted to join in on it. LOL I don't think I would have been too thrilled about it going down my shirt, and I probably would have made a spectacle of myself trying to get rid of it. I definitely wouldn't have been as calm as you. But I wouldn't have started a screaming fit either. LOL

I was just so glad it was only my husband there and we weren't in a group as we usually are. Your cat's grin would keep the flies away!
