This evening I made a discovery. It began with a small pile of reading material that we had in our bathroom. Oh, come on. Don't tell me you've never done that.
So, I was getting the little baby bathtub ready and went to fill it with a little water from the tap in the tub. I noticed our pile of books sitting there and decided that I really didn't want them to get wet, so I moved them an inch or two.
As I moved them I noticed something dark and weird behind it. I nudged the books over a little more and nearly jumped out of my skin when I saw hundreds of tiny larvae wiggling between the books and the wall of the tub! They were happily ensconced in a layer of dark brown stuff reminiscent of other things you might find in a bathroom.
So, that discovery taught me a thing or two, or three.
1. Termites will eat books and paper.
2. It is very gross.
3. Dennis will go to great lengths to save a beloved baseball magazine.
