I decided that today was the day to turn the compost. As I was trying to extract 4 months worth of rotten grass clippings, lime thorns, and kitchen scraps, a HUGE yellow-green-blue-black centipede came whipping out. Jurassic this thing. Yellow feet, blue body, pale orange underside.
I admired its lovely bright colors as I hacked it to death with my shovel, chanting Die. Die. Die.
Then the wild roosters came over and finished it off, gingerly, still flipping and coiling.
