|The Abominable Schneecher On the Prowl (after the cameraman)|
|Do Bats Give You Rabies?|
I've always thought there's 'something of the night' about the Schneecher. Or am I thinking of Michael Howard MP? If Anne Widdecombe said that, it must be right. I've always thought that they're two of a kind - the unkind, kind. Or, to put it another way - he has a kind face; the kind you'd like to stick the nut on.
Anyway, I got the Schneecher to lay off, then I thought I should pick it up and evict it, then I thought I'd better not, because I couldn't remember whether bats bite or not. So I got a glove and picked it up with that, whilst distracting the Schneech.
I couldn't remember what, but there was something about bat bites being dangerous in the news a few years ago. It was some kind of disease, which I couldn't remember until I told my wife about it this morning and she said, "Bats give you rabies”. Then she said, “I’m glad I wasn’t there”. I bet the bat could empathise with that.
Then I remembered that some guy in Aberdeen had died of rabies after a bat bite. So, then I started foaming at the mouth, because I was cleaning my teeth. That wee bat didn't get a chance to bite me, but unfortunately, I can’t say the same about the Schneech - her and me have compromised: She does what she likes, and so do I (do what she likes).
