We have scorpions in East Texas and all over the Lone Star State. There are around 18 different species of these denizens of Hell, I mean scorpions, in Texas. But some are much more common than others.
And so, that flat space above the refrigerator seemed like the PERFECT place to put things that had nowhere else to live in my kitchen. After all the pantry space in some of these places wasn't 'ample,' either but hey--we do what we must.
Until we find out we shouldn't. Ugh. So many 'shouldn'ts,' aren't there?
But once you go through these items, I think it's easy to see why this matters.
