I left the door open today and some flies got in. I was walking around doing stuff and the were buzzing all over the place. When I got the swatter and turned around they were all gone. Hiding and watching me. I could just feel it.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
So after looking around and not finding any I put the swatter down and went back to work. Then they were all around me buzzing again. So I went to get the swatter again and hid it behind my back.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> They still disapeared. Smart flies.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Now I have the swatter hidden under the desk to see if they come back. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/whistling.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="whistle">

The flies here must be stupid. One night they all got in the house...a good thirty of them <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br><br>
I turned off all the lights in the house save the bathroom light, waited fifteen minutes. Then shut myself in with them. Those flies were...er...sitting ducks. I had a lovely 10 minutes of Whack-A-Fly...<br><br>
Little fly corpses everywhere. It was a delightful massacre, really <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:

Glad to know it's not just me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I just got one but the others are still laying low. Probably thinking no way I'm going out there. Did you see what just happened to that guy!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

That's a good idea. I'll have to try that. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
