...Not the kind of wheel you fall asleep at...


Last night, as I was falling asleep and the inside of my ear started to feel as though it were creeping, I tentatively entertained the thought that perhaps I had an earwig. I then realized that I didn't actually KNOW what an earwig in fact IS.

Main Entry: 1ear·wig
Pronunciation: -"wig
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English erwigge, from Old English Earwicga, from Eare ear + wicga insect
: any of numerous insects (order Dermaptera) having slender many-jointed antennae and a pair of cerci resembling forceps at the end of the body

I also realized I am still not too big a fan of Natalie Merchant.
