Our apartment is home to many creatures. Two homo sapiens, a few arachnids, 10-15 geckos, and a multitude of marching ants. The arachnids are elusive, and the geckos generally mind their own business, but the ants have become a nuisance. 

The ants march in interminable lines across our yellow walls. We’ve set ant traps, sprayed their holes with deet in aerosol form, washed them down the drain, and rolled their little exoskeletons betwixt our fingers. We are keeping a clean kitchen and storing our food in plastic containers or in the refrigerator. Still they find reason to call on us.

The weather is humid, which is great for moisturizing one’s skin, but unfortunately, it also nourishes the mold garden in my closet. I tried to vanquish the mold yesterday. I hope it’s gone for good, because I’m tired of sneezing.

Who put “fun” in fungus?
