The Beetle

Imagine the fear that enveloped the kids’ room when a rhinoceros beetle (uwang) appeared out of nowhere in the clothes hamper. Karen was screaming her wits out when DH finally found it.

Come to think of it, the last time I’ve seen an uwang was in the province. I don’t remember seeing one even here south of Manila. I suppose this fright is the usual (and silly) reaction of those who’ve not seen one. But for the younger smaller ones like Renz? It’s one of curiosity. After seeing DH hold the uwang, Renz takes it and lets it even crawl in his hand.

And promptly names him “Fred”.
