Cricket on a stick
Okay, an ornamental grass stalk, but the ick in stick sounds good with the ick in cricket. And you can say ick if you want to because the cricket was dead. How its remains could stick to the stalk when I raised it and moved it around to get good angles for pictures, I don’t know. (I didn’t get a crick in my neck, either.) How I even noticed the cricket in the first place low on a landscaped plant in a parking lot in Cedar Park on September 14th while walking back to my car, I also don’t know.
