Locked Up with a Dragonfly

While on my trip to Florida this week, the place we were staying was undergoing some renovations. During the nice dinner (with the salmon and yummy cake), I had to use the restroom. Well, the only one that you could use was out by the pool area.

It was a one person room that was rather let's say...like you would expect an outdoor pool restroom to be. I went in, realized another person was waiting behind me, locked the door, and then notice there is an ENORMOUS dragonfly buzzing crazily around the bathroom.

I was somewhat frightened-having heard that dragonflies sometimes sting or bite. I thought-that would really hurt. I've never seen one so huge. Option A: Run out of here like a crazy woman and go up to my room to use the facilities. Option B: Stick it out and pray for the best!

I swatted at it a few times as it nose-dived towards me and then I remembered this is a dragonfly, my personal symbol. I even had on my dragonfly ring! I said a little prayer, in hopes that the dragonfly would settle down while I did my business. And thankfully it did.

Then I washed my hands extra quickly and warned the lady behind me about it!

Maybe it was sign...I'm not sure what it meant. I'm just happy I got out of there safely ;)!

Have you had any crazy bathroom experiences and/or experiences with insects? Please share!

Today, I am grateful for a lovely day with a friend, a lovely evening with girlfriends last night, new families in the area to babysit for, for a relaxing weekend ahead, my husband, family, friends and GOD!

I'm so glad that you didn't get stung. I remember many times not wanting to go into the outhouse at the farm for the same reason :)

I Kicked Cancer's Ass said...

I am a Stage 3B Cervical Cancer Survivor. I created a blog in an effort to raise Cervical Cancer Awareness (www.cancerlost.blogspot.com). I was 28 when I was diagnosed with advanced Cervical Cancer and my story is a long, painful & inspiring one. Cervical Cancer is not talked about but it touches the lives of every single woman out there. We need to start talking about this cancer because it is not rare and it does kill.

I came across your blog and its pretty great! I will add you to my blog list so that my readers can stop by and see your site!
