Going Batty!

Well gee. So much for sleep. The scream of my ex woke me up. I don't have a clue how he managed to get into the house (since no windows without screens are open and so forth) but we got a bat!

Those suckers aren't easy to catch either. They're very good at changing course in an instant. They can really turn on a dime! They're not nearly as inept as a bird in that respect.

Oh, I suppose if I had wanted to hurt the little guy it'd have been easy enough to put an end to him. But I only wanted to get him back outside. So I was trying not to be violent about catching him.

And the trouble is, you don't know if the flighty little bugger has rabies or not, so you don't really want to get too up close and personal.

I don't know why, but he just wouldn't land! He kept flying around and around. It even looked like he was looking for a place to land sometimes, but he just wouldn't do it. He probably really just wanted out of the house. So he'd just keep circling a room over and over and over. We'd manage to chase him out of one room only to have him just circle the next one.

Well, eventually, me and the ex managed to guide him into the kitchen with the back door open, with her blocking the doorway that leads back into the rest of the house and me trying to just get him to go through the back door so he could be free. But then he finally got so pooped he just crashed into a curtain and hung out. Thank goodness. I was able to put him in a pot and carried him outside. He was so sedate (exhausted) by then that I didn't even need to throw a towel over him.

They're cute little guys. A lot like a winged hamster. It'd be fun to have one as a pet if he'd been bred tamed over several generations. But not a wild one. And not with free range of the entire house at freaking midnight. I'm wiped!

Yeah. While it could be fun to have my mind altered like that for a while, and while sometimes when I'm feeling down I do wish I was dead, I don't think I really want either. And those shots are evil.
