Sharing the Bed

I saw something out of the corner of my eye, and went to swipe it away with my hand...

Until I realized how big it was....

I jumped up in my bed on to my feet, screamed and looked for something smash worthy. I grabbed the remote and gave it a whack.

I had just killed a scorpion in my bed... while I was in it.


Ackkk!! Ok and here are the details that make it much worse. I only had a sheet covering me in bed (its hot) and the scorpion was crawling on the fitted sheet part and was speeding towards me. It was about 5 inches from my hip when I went airborne. If I didn't see it... it would have been horrible. I wasn't wearing socks or pj pants like I normal do!

Thankfully I had the TV on and I could see it in the darkness. Also, I was glad I didn't turn off the TV a few moments before, when I had contemplated it.


More scorpion incidents.


  1. oh. my. god!!!!!

    I saw a Hammer House of Horror film when I was a kiddie, where a lady stepped into her slippers (house-shoes) and was stung by a scorpion that the bad guy had slipped in there. I shook my shoes before putting them on for YEARS and we don’t even have wild scorpions in the UK!

    I hope you’re not too freaked out.

  2. Yuck!!! Glad you got him.

  3. I wish I had an answer. I guess we need to change services!


  4. Oh NO!!! I would have DIED...even without being stung! I'm glad you're ok.

  5. OMG! I'm usually a lurker, but this post gave me the heebie jeebies and I had to leave a comment! I wouldn't have slept a wink all night long after that!

  6. My husband chuckles at me when I insist on keeping the sheets and covers from touching the floor. I'll have to show him this picture. Don't know if it helps, but I feel a little safer.

  7. I have had scorpions on furniture next to the bed but never IN the bed. I would have totally freaked out.
