Last night when I was trying to sleep, I discovered that a lightning bug was stuck in the bedroom--my own private lightning storm. It reminded me of Twain's quote, 'The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.' Let me just say, in the right context a lightning bug can be pretty powerful!
Thankfully, my twenty-year-old son took care of my bioluminescent problem. Though it left a glowing streak on the wall.
