Yep, that's a scorpion all right.

Once when I was in Mexico, my boyfriend and I returned to our hotel room and we were if not three sheets to the wind, definitely two. And sitting in the middle of the floor was a small scorpion. It wasn't moving.

We debated what to do for about five minutes. If we left the room to report it, there would be NO WAY I would ever sleep in that room if we couldn't find it again.

The second alternative was to squash it with a shoe. Which leads to the question: How fast is a scorpion and just how mad it might be if he missed?

We decided to squash it. They are not fast.

My boyfriend picked it up with about 200 sheets of toilet paper and flushed it. Crisis over.
