I used to think, incorrectly, that the common housefly lives less than a week.
Thanks to the Google machine, I have since learned that a fly can live 15+ days in the wild, and 30 days in optimal conditions.
What are optimal conditions?
The temps available in your home. Or, I should say, my home.
I have had a fly buzzing around my apartment for almost a week. He only reveals himself once or twice a day.
I haven’t been able to swat him, and I haven’t been able to get him to go out the door.
And really, why would he?
He’s got it made here.

I hailed a cab to take me to downtown last night — nothing unusual about that. But as soon as we pulled away from the curb, there was a flash of lights and sirens behind us.
From another cab.
An undercover taxi cab police car.
I didn’t even know they existed! But my taxi driver said the police have undercover taxis, town cars — you name it — all waiting to take down unsuspecting lawbreakers.
Which filled my head with this scene:
A New York City bus pulls up to a stop. But it’s not a real bus — it’s an undercover police bus! Filled with SWAT team members. All armed and dangerous. Who run out of the bus and into the streets.
That’s all I got so far. But I like it.
