dropping like flies
the saying "dropping like flies" has taken on a new meaning for me. for the past couple weeks we have had tons of flies flying all over our office (so much so that i blogged about it) but now a few weeks later...there are no flies flying but there are flies lying. it seems like everywhere i go in this place, i see dead flies on the ground. im finally understanding the saying they're dropping like flies! but its so weird. its like, im wondering if i should be worried...what the heck is in the air that is making these flies drop dead?! i dont love bugs..in fact, i dont like them at all..wellll lately thats not entirely true. i do have a soft spot for bees, ants, and worms...what?! bees and ants are really really smart...and ants are like really hard workers! i look at them hard at work all in a line and im so proud of them! and worms...well, if i pass a worm that seems to be stuck in a dry spot on the sidewalk..i cant help but scootch it back to some nice moist soil. the alternative is just too sad...to die by drying up!??! horrifying! ok ok, yes, clearly i have issues...buuut you know, whats knew?! haha! anyway, ive found myself feeling sort of bad (and being a little scared about what im breathing in) for these flies that seem to have died mid-flight. poor little guys.
