This one came looking for me. I was sitting at my desk working late last night and gradually became aware that my dog was growling at something. I had shushed him several times, but he continued until I finally turned around. There was a scorpion coming in the room from the dark hallway. He had us cornered. I told the dog to back off and looked around for something to trap the scorpion with. I emptied a box of paperclips on the desk and dropped the box on top of the scorpion and then weighed it down with some file folders. We could hear the scratching sounds against the insides of the cardboard box of the scorpion trying to escape. I went to the kitchen and got a tupperware container and did the same thing as before, sliding a piece of paper under the box and carrying the whole thing outside. I was wearing shoes the whole time and the lights were on in the office. Maybe it was the same scorpion as before, who knows?
