A funny thing happened the other day. I was fixing a pair of leaking valves on my 14m kite when Scott came by. I stopped what I was doing to visit with him and showed him a visitor that I found in my house - a scorpion, which I had placed in a tumbler. Scott made the comment that this little scorpion is one of the more potent types. After a while I went back to fixing my kite and Scott asked if he could get himself a glass of water. Naturally I said yes and continued with my chore. Scott comes out back where I am working and takes a big drink from his glass. Unfortunately he had used the glass that contained the scorpion which was now wiggling in his mouth. Luckily he was able to spit it out before it stung him. Not sure if he thought that it was as funny as I did.
