Crazy Ant Attack!

Posted by Varun

I had a hearty laugh when Sindhu wrote about her ant troubles,as,undoubtedly others must have too.Little did I know then that someday I would be running around the house with ants in my pants! The little buggers sure enjoyed annoying the crap out of me.


The last 3-4 days had been pretty hectic,did some documentation,got my Graduation results (got 70% which is pretty good,considering my university's trends) so I was in a jolly good mood,but my room wasn't.It was a right mess,clothes strewn everywhere,papers,books,cds...I had to sleep amongst these things for a few days,since I was too tired,or lazy to clean it all up.One of those nights,I faintly remember squishing one or two ants which were biting my neck,while being half-asleep.

Now that I finally had mustered the motivation to clean it all up (yeah,I need motivation to clean up my room,sometimes days and days of it.Have YOU cleaned your room this weekend? I didn't think so :P ) Anywho,so I have been known to leave gum,candies and other sweetmeats in my trouser pockets,so I was a little wary anyways.The clothes went well.I found one or two ants near the trousers and I thought, "Ah,that explains my strange,and disturbing ant-bite fantasy"(hmm?)

"There,Looks clean enough to me",I said to myself."Now all that's left to do is change the sheets". Easy peasy? Hell to the noesy!The second I yanked out the sheets from my mattress,out came the ants from under it,literally in their thousands! I was speechless.It took a second of realization before i could whisper,"Holy $%^$^ing %$#W@,it's them ants!"

Immediately I beckoned my sister over,and hauled the poor stricken mattress up vertically,then I proceeded to sweep the ants off the damn mattress and my sister swept them away with a wet piece of cloth.Apparently the underside of my mattress,made warm and cozy by my ample rear end,was the right temperature to store winter supplies.

Somehow I felt bad about uprooting an entire storage facility,but hey! I didn't say the place was up for rent did I? See ya later,suckers!

Sometimes it's the little things that keep us going: cleaning your room or just motivating ourselves to complete one task off our to-do list. Life is not always fun, but it is LIFE.

peace,

Hi Laughed so hard, great blog, although not about the ants hehehehe. My granma's house has a lot of ants and no matter what we do they are still there, We can't find the colony as i think they are in the roof but we kill whatever we see..... Very annoying indeed.

Okay,so here's where I reply to your blabber :P


@anonymous: Thanks! keep reading.

@comfortably numb : I'm just happy I got the results out of the way..may parents are like,"Aren't you happy or anything?".

@hashan hazarika: how can you call my ordeal a nice experience? How insensitive! hmph!

@mike foster: But really,motivation is paramount when getting to cleaning your room

@mith: Clean up now,thank me later,especially if you too find ants,bugs,or any unwanted fauna around :D

@atilla: Nah,the mattress acted like a shock absorber.I'm sure they were having a mass wedding or something down there,with a nice buffet

@insanely chay: here's a tip: mix up some dough,and throw it over the ants.they'll stick in,and you wont have to retch at all the death and destruction lol

@akanksha: cheers! keep visiting,I won't disappoint you :) Oh and I was planning on writing a long comment about your MNS post,but assman said pretty much what I wanted to say,and besides you posted that in april and a lot of water's passed under the bridge :)

@whizkidd : cheers dude! Blogger templates rox! However I mustn't be humble.I've made some tweaks to make it to my taste :)
