  1. I found this guy(gal?) residing peacefully amongst the wires behind my stereo tangle.

    He is huge, about 8 inches, inclusive of antennae.

    That wouldn't seem strange if it were not for the fact that I've also found a lizard and a tarantula living back there.
    All were uncharacteristically huge.
    Perhaps my daughter's John Mayer CD played 1000 times makes things grow frighteningly large.

    I relocated him(her?), first to my Lowpro pack and finally, off into the woods.

    Had the hapless creature been found by the cat, or worse still, crawled across my face at 3AM it might not have been dealt with so charitably.
