Do you suppose it's bad luck to kill a scorpion on Christmas Eve? I only ask because my brother-in-law spotted one in the dining room as we were finishing dinner this evening. He was concerned about one of the dogs spotting it. He was barefoot and I was wearing boots so the killing fell to me. I do not like doing that sort of thing but...dogs. And, well, it was a scorpion and I was going to be sleeping about 15 feet from that spot later tonight. So now I'm wondering if it's bad luck or not.

Note to self: check your boots in the morning before pulling them on; it's probably a good idea to check pretty much everything in the morning.

Wondering how much sleep I'll be getting tonight.
