On a dime

There’s a good reason we shake out our shoes before wearing them. ┬áThis striped bark scorpion passed onto the big rock pile in the sky long before it reached adulthood. It’s not unusual to find adults in the house, walking the bathroom floor in their odd, tank-like way, only to perish under the force of a rolled up issue of Wine Spectator.
