Fast forward to 5:30 in the morning Tuesday. After waking up prematurely at 5:29 I noticed a VERY large moth flying around in the dark bedroom. Upon closer examination I realized that we had a bat in the house. Yep…. Like a batman kind of bat. Although not as cool.
So here I am, in my pajamas trying to shoosh the bat out one of the glass doors in the living room. I figured I’d open all the doors and hope the bat would recognize this kind gesture and say, “Hey thanks. See you later!” No such luck. Not only did the bat decide not to leave, now I had a house full of mosquitoes and other bugs. Awesome. Finally I followed it downstairs and was able to get it out the double doors in the basement.
“Wow. What a crazy event to share with our friends! How many people have a bat in the house? This will make for a funny story to my friends back in Chicago“ I thought to myself.
Little did I know what was to come!
