Sleeping with his eyes open

The moth and beetle control worker signed off at 1:30 AM, found himself a quiet ledge, and took a long, refreshing nap.

He's two inches long. He didn't wake up when I measured him.

2:40 AM. Time to wake up and go back to work.

That round blob is spider poop. It wasn't there while he slept.

    1. You're right. It had a pattern on it, and reminded me of a dime. And then I was too sleepy to pay attention to what I was writing. Long day.
      I've deleted that bit from the post. Thank you.

    1. Yes, I just compared to species, and you're right.

If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
