Last week when I was staying at the coast, I got out of the shower and was messing around in the bathroom in bare feet. At one point I stepped backwards and my heel glanced off of something cold and rubbery. I thought it was a doorstop, but many years here have developed a healthy sensitivity to anything weird underfoot. Luckily I didn’t put my full weight on it because it was a TWELVE-INCH-LONG MILLEPEDE. How did it even get in? I do not know… it was too big to crawl under a crack in the door, too heavy to get itself vertical to go up a wall, and it definitely didn’t knock.
