Uninvited Guests

August 16, 2008

in Insect & Animal Stories

After a hectic week, my husband and I were looking forward to having a romantic dinner at a Thai restaurant, nibbling on tangy food and whispering sweet nothings to each other. The candle on our table glowed softly in the darkened dining room, creating a perfect atmosphere for a sensuous night of romance.

Much to our shock, we discovered that we had dinner guests accompanying us – dozens of them! Creepy, icky roaches scurried about the table top, peering at us behind the plates and silverware. The mood turned immediately from romance to horror. I let out a scream when I felt coarse, spiny insect feet bristle against my legs. The owner rushed to the table. She blamed the bug problems on the restaurant next door. Of course, we didn’t finish our meals (nor did we pay for them). The owner gave us a coupon for our next visit, but we never want to go back and dine with the uninvited guests.

"nibbling on tangy food"?

How awful. I have a fear of crawling insects and I would have died of fright. Also a romantic evening out with the person you love is a special moment and to have it ruined by something like this is quite saddening. But on the bright side at least it added a bit of exitement – sort of.
