Bugs, they are everywhere. It seems that the closer you get to the equator the bigger a lot of things get, bugs included. This fellow named Tacomasteve who lives in Granada posted a picture of what looks like a honey bee on another Nica site. He said it has a wing span of two inches. It made me wonder, are there any other bug stories that someone may want to share?
For the purpose of this thread, Bugs are just about anything really. Snakes, frogs, sea-creatures, things that get into your skin, whatever. If it is yucky and bothers you talk about it or post a photo here.
When I was 19-21 I lived in San Diego. At the very bottom of San Diego there is Imperial Beach and I lived there. It is a kind of a dumpy little place as far as San Diego beaches go, but I loved it. You could see the Bull fighting ring in Tiajuana and you could also see helicopters flying constantly.
One day I was laying on my stomach on Imperial Beach (IB) and felt something biting the back of my, just below my knee. I turned around and seen a big black fly about the size of this bee.
I jumped up startled. The fly came at me. I hit the fly in the mouth with my fist. The fly went down, and most would have assumed the fly was down for the count. However, the fly came back and with even more energy than before. He had this look n his eyes that I cannot even describe. Obviously that fly was using an ectoskeleton to its advantage, something I do not have by the way. The fly zigged and zagged and came at me. I swung at the fly as it was either him or me. I didn't hold back, I gave it all I had. At some point the fly realized that it had met his match and decided to retreat.
I looked around and seen a group of young people on a blanket laughing at me. Then I seen that big fly flying in a corkscrew kind of pattern towards their blanket. You never seen four people leave a so fast, and in four different directions. They freaked. They were cowards.
This really did happen. Summer of 1982, Imperial Beach. And yes, I was very high.
