Bat Update (1st day of August, 2007):
I was awakened by my wife to claims of a bat-like presence in the kitchen.
I actually got out of bed, as I could no longer pretend to sleep through the yelling.
Sure enough, there is a bat flying around the kitchen.
I retrieve fishing net from basement.
Upon returning to the kitchen, net in hand, the bat retreated to the bathroom.
Discover bat hanging from shower curtain in bathroom, I catch bat in net, bat flies back out of net. Bat launches aerial assault at my head, succeeds in causing me to the drop net.
I retrieve net and track bat back into kitchen where I make a last stand against the bat’s incursion into my kitchen.
I capture bat in fishing net. Bat begins chirping loudly. I smack bat against refrigerator. Bat stops chirping.
“Treaty of Chapin” is signed between bat and homeowner. Bat is subsequently released back into the wild. (Yes it was still alive and capable of flying away)
This just cracks me up! This is an email that Adam sent out to all the guys he works with to update him on the status of the bat (we also had a bat in our basement a couple months back). He is so freakin' hilarous don't you think? Heheehehe :)
