Default Too funny. Still laughing.

So I was poking around the garage organizing my brewery. My loving wife was doing her nails watching something stupid. All of a sudden I hear a blood curdling scream. I go running into my house expecting the worse. My wifes nails are wet and she's flapping her arms screaming about flying spiders. So I do my manly duty and look for the creepy crawly. Thinking a spider was dropping from the ceiling fan. She yells at me " No it was a flying spider."
So I hung out for a minute. She started screaming "Oh my god there it is. Kill it. Kill it."
It was a mosquito hawk.
Hope you find this as funny as I do.

I had to look that one up. The mosquito hawk, colloquial, that I had heard named is a feathered bird of prey. This hawk feeds only at night, they said, on mosquitoes. I was picturing your mosquito hawk with a 12 inch wingspan in the house.
Your insect I had always called a crane fly.

We always called them "Gallynippers."

THAT I know..... Mosquito Hawk - I had visions of one big a$$ bird flying around the house.... funny how the same critter is called different things. And we wonder why people have trouble understanding one another.

That aside, that's some funny stuff right there....the visual of wet nails and flapping arms....."flying spiders"

Was she trying to mimic this ferocious insect by flapping her arms with the nail polish of death on her talons!? LOL!!

Don't get me started with the cat. He found a Jerusalem cricket once that was hilarious.
Nothing is alive with my killer around. Got a couple small snakes last summer wife was hysterical had to leave work.
