Well, I’m just pouring the kettle for my morning coffee, when I notice a largish insect crawling on the handle, right next to my hand!
I don’t know if it’s hardwired into the human psyche, or only with me, but gut reaction when I see an unidentified many-legged thing crawling on the thing I’ve just picked up is I want to drop it! Luckily, I had just enough time to check the reflex, and think: “I can’t, I can’t - it’s a kettle full of boiling water!”, and put it down on the counter sharpish, without actually throwing it anywhere.
Nameless thing, on closer inspection, turned out to be an earwig. On a boiling kettle, of all places. Not a very pleasant start to coffee!
