We seem to have more moths in our car than the average person, but I know that the fault lies with us. We tend to be lazy folks, who leave car windows open and convertible tops down and in Washington State, that is risky business. Not just because of the occasional spider or moth or roaming midnight cat, but because chances are great that it will rain and your seat will be wet, both the cars and yours.
Yet, we still leave the car open.
My son and daughter picked me up from work the other day and as we step outside my son says, "Full disclosure, there is a giant moth in the car."
Giant? Like freakishly huge? I look at the car and my daughter is standing outside of it. I asked where the moth was and they shrugged. First it had been on the dashboard, then it went under the drivers seat, then it went under the passenger seat and who knows where it is now.
After some banging around and searching, the moth remained hidden. My son drove because he was pretty sure if the moth flew out at me while I was driving, I'd forget I was driving and flail and scream. He's probably right.
The moth remains unfound. I'm choosing to believe that it waited until we left the car, with the windows down, and took off to star in the moth land version of "I Shouldn't Have Survived."
That said, I'm not really interested in getting back in the car for awhile. I think I'll just walk.
