Day 65—Nightmare

Today’s challenge theme is “Dream.” Since my entry yesterday was titled “Pipe Dreams” I think I did my “dream” shot for the week. I did try to photograph some white mums in a sort of ethereal fog but was not successful in achieving the look I sought so I decided depicting a nightmare would be best for me today. My recurring nightmare, although I don’t dream it, I relive it, is the ant invasion that began after I remodeled my house and continued for three years until they moved into my coffee maker along with their eggs at which point I bashed the stainless coffee maker against the granite countertop in an effort to dump the ants down the sink drain. Violence did not get their attention and the ants continued to invade my home…until I fought back. I hired a pest service. Along with remodeling my house, hiring the pest service is one of the best decisions I have ever made. To commemorate the invasion, my sister-in-law presented me with a huge rock and metal ant which I display prominently in my living room. Let me introduce you to my nightmare.
