I was sitting in Shoes old zero gravity chair on the patio last night visiting with neighbors. What is a head rest in the foto is a lumbar pillow on my old chair. That's the way it was when I got it so thought that's how it should be.
Anyway I got up to close the screen door to the house that my cat opens but refuses to close. While I was gone one of the kids noticed a scorpion in the middle of the seat that must have been under the lumbar pillow. It wasn't moving and turned out to be dead ... but did I kill it by sitting on it?
I've seen lots of small grey ones here in the brick piles during construction but this one was about 3 times larger and dark brown. How I escaped getting a stinger in the rear I don't know. We had the usual conversation about getting a shot at Centro de Salud but just glad I didn't have to make that trip.
