The Move

     A family in San Diego was moving, but because the husband was out of town, the wife had the unenviable task of packing everything into cardboard boxes.  That night, she collapsed with her young family onto the floor of their  home, into sleeping bags.  During the night, the weary woman was roused by her  youngest son saying t hat there was a bug in the room.  She told him to swat it.

     When he refused, she made her way into the darkness of the garage, grabbed a can of bug spray and without disturbing the other sleeping children by turning on the lights, she sprayed the window ledges and around the sleeping bags of the kids and went back to bed.  

     In the morning she found that it wasn't bug spray she had used, but blue spray paint.
