The Attacking Mantis (lol)

I was little when this happened so the details are a bit sketchy. Anywho, I was sitting on the front porch with my mom and mamaw. We were laughing and playing with a praying mantis. Mom set it on my shoulder. "Stay very still." she said, I obeyed and watched it out of the corner of my eye. I finally relaxed and started talking to mom again. The next thing I know, the mantis has attached itself to my face. I shrieked and started swatting at it. Its claw went into my mouth!!!!! XD YICK!!!

My mom and mamaw lost it! They kept on laughing and I kept on swatting at it until it finally jumped off me and onto my mom. She squealed and it leapt away into the garden.

I laughed nervously and said, "EW!!!" Mom and mamaw kept laughing and when they could breathe, mom said, "That, my dear daughter, was priceless!"

SO maybe being attacked by a praying mantis is why I have an avertion to all bugs now...O_O"
