So I was driving home from work, minding my own business, when something caught my eye. I glanced up and noticed I had a passenger. A HUGE grasshopper was clinging to the fabric on the roof of my car. Oh my gosh... I screamed so loud that I'm sure the folks in the cars around me thought I was possessed.
One guy looked over as I was staring at my ceiling while driving 60 mph on Bangerter Highway. He gave me a look like, "What are you doing?" then promptly sped up and cut me off. Nice.
I was about 5 blocks from home when I saw my new friend, so I had to keep a watchful eye on him so he wouldn't jump on me before I could run out of the car. Luckily he crawled (upside down) to the back of the car by the back window. Phew. But, suddenly, I looked back and he'd disappeared. AHHHHH! I frantically looked on the seats, the floor, the back of the car (don't worry I was at a red light) but he was nowhere to be found. So I turned into my neighborhood and onto my street and WHAM the grasshopper had jumped to right by my shoulder. I screamed and swerved and leaned away ... all in front of my new neighbor who was watering his lawn. Welcome to the crazy neighborhood!
At least Jovi was happy to see my new friend ... for about 5 seconds. Then... yum!
