Biggest Fly I've Ever Killed

I expect giant cockroaches in Arizona. It's a given, along with cactus and scorpions. Sort of iconic, like seashells on the beach.

Now giant flies, I thought they were reserved for Texas or places that have some degree of humidity.

I'm sitting on the john with no where to run, when I hear a thundering bzzzzzz, louder than a standard bee bzzz. Then out of no where I see this giant black flying object. My first thought was of a carpenter bee, but it was too small for that.

After the kamikaze flight path toward my head, it settle on the counter top near me. I smashed it with the requisite bathroom reading material, then did what any reasonable person would do when faced with an above average abnormality in the commode.

I got my camera.

Okay I just had a 5 minute debate with Aaron whether the expression, "You have no shame" is appropriate to use here or not. I was going to say, "You have no shame, and I LOVE it." But then I was afraid that might sound offensive... and now I'm rambling, but the point is - you are funny. And this is funny. And I have laughed about it all day. And there is a fly in my house and I've wondered all day about how it compares in size to your fly.

Flee Fly. Just got back from Camp and the song came to mind. Looks like a horse fly to me. Have you been horsing around?
