Had my annual pest control inspection. That's a fancy way of saying "termites." I unfortunately live in a termite hot spot. They're pretty active out here on the south side of Tucson. An infestation was found last year when I bought my house. No sign of anything new. That's one of word that sends instant fear into the hearts of homeowners--termites. So, I reluctantly pay for an inspection because the consequences are too costly if you don't. Maybe they're taking advantage of my paranoia. But these little bugs can do some serious damage to a home.
It occurred to me as the inspector guy was looking around, that I've never seen a story submitted to anything I edit that was about termites. I wonder why.
