I've been keeping my eye on it, and can satisfactorily report it hasn't moved for days. So I've left it alone because there have been too many other things on fire around here to deal with. Things more important than a stinkbug setting up house on my bedroom wall. Yeah, we've had some major shit.
Anyway, I happened to mention the stinkbug to The Man.
me: "Have you noticed the stinkbug in our room?"
The Man: "Yeah."
me: "Are you going to kill it?"
The Man: "Are you?"
And that's when the game of Stinkbug Chicken tm began. Though I'm not sure that The Man actually knows he's a participant in my new form of entertainment. But I believe he is beginning to suspect.
So here's how I'm playing. I make a comment about the bug to see if The Man will be the one to break down and dispose of it first. Only, I can't actually ask him to do it. I can only bring his attention to the bug in interesting ways. For example.
me: "You know, I think I'll name the stinkbug in our room, Ralph."
The Man: bushy glance from the corner of his eye: "Is that so."
me: "Yeah. It seems he'll be staying awhile and if he's going to see me changing my clothes, I figured he should have a name."
The Man: "How do you know it's a he?"
me: "Because it stares at me so intently when I get naked."
Oh, he's good.
So it's a stalemate right now, but I haven't cracked yet. As long as Ralph stays put, that is. He's perched on my side of the room, so if he goes mobile, I'll be the first to be infiltrated.
Though, truthfully, if that thing starts flying?
