Strike a pose (or a bug!)
The other morning I walked into my kitchen and a big creepy bug was standing around near my stove. "Silverfish," I thought. Then immediately wondered why I thought I knew the name of a bug I've never seen before.
It gave me one glance and promptly ran away. Which was a smart move on its part. I looked around until I found it, then successfully smashed it, which always makes me feel guilty. How many bugs will approach me in heaven someday and say, "Man, I wasn't doin' you no harm. Why'd you go and kill me?" (Because bugs will have dumb accents in heaven. And bad grammar, too.)
So I looked up "silverfish" on the internet, and sure enough, that was what I saw.
Now I know I'm a genius, knowing the name of a bug I don't know anything about...
