My dad is in an epic battle with his utility company...although they don't know it.
He's determined to get his electric bill down to the lowest possible amount.
Last week, he achieved his lowest bill yet...$26 for one month!
How does he manage to get his bill so low?
He turns the air off.
And leaves his sliding glass door to the apartment balcony open...
which in turn led to a swarm of flies taking up residence in his apartment.
They even trickled out into the hall...a large enough amount of them that apparently the neighbors feared he was dead!!
One neighbor burst down the door to check on my dad...only to find my dad merrily watching TV in the nude...with a bevy of flies filling the room.
I don't know who was shocked more...but I do know, my dad's new name is Lord of the Flies.
We went the very next day to buy a fly swatter for him.
