Over the weekend, my family was at an outside event in Columbus, and we were under attack. Lady bugs dive-bombing from all directions. Landing on clothes, skin, hair. Anywhere. And no matter how many times they were flicked off, they kept coming back. My daughter was quite the unhappy camper (she's not a fan of bugs, even adorable ones).
What's with all the lady bugs? It seems a little late in the year for them, doesn't it? Could they possibly be those lady bug imposters (some sort of nefarious beetle) that I can never remember the name of or how to tell the two apart. I'm not sure, but even though they're cute, they can go away now. Any time.
I was at the grocery store yesterday and noticed there was a lady bug hitchhiking on a woman's purse. I have visions of lady bugs taking over Kroger, buzzing around the aisles, flitting from produce to dairy without a care in the world. All I have to say is that they better stay away from the chips. Cuteness only goes so far.
