There was a young woman who lived with some flies. I don’t know why she brought in the flies. Perhaps she’ll die.
See those spots on the mirror? They aren’t from toothpaste residue or leftover hairspray. They’re fruit flies.
Really vain fruit flies that like to spend hours looking at themselves in the mirror. I deep cleaned the bathroom yesterday and when I applied Windex to the glass the flies flew away as I began to spray, but came back again and landed right in the wet glass a few seconds later. They couldn’t bear to be away from their own reflection longer than a few moments!
I had a few crazy workdays this week that led to me not cleaning up after myself (apple cores) like I should have, and now we have fruit flies living in both the bathroom and the kitchen. No, I didn’t eat the apple in the bathroom, just threw it away in the bathroom garbage. Eating in the bathroom is gross.
I set up some traps consisting of vinegar and grape juice in a glass, covered with saran wrap with holes poked in the top. They’ve worked okay, but I’m thinking a better solution would have been prevention. I won’t be so lazy about taking out the trash from now on, and I definitely won’t be keeping old fruit in the bathroom.
I just hate when I feel like the flies are buzzing around my bum when I’m doing my business.
