Pass the salt, hold the pepper, use wasp spray if it’s not a friend, that’s what I remembered first thing the other morning.

Never sure if it’s a daydream, nightmare or a hallucination, I’m prone to all three, I thought to myself after one of my infrequent but nevertheless delusional episodes: This could have merit.

It had to have been a dream. The use of a high-powered, highly concentrated wasp spray as a home invasion deterrent, rather than the recommended pepper spray, that is.

Then again, maybe it was an infomercial on TV that I happened across in the middle of the night.

I’ve also been accused lately of being glued to my cell phone and Facebook postings; it could have been there where I was told a can of wasp spray is equally as effective as pepper spray.
