While growing up this little creature gained almost mystical properties to my still developing mind.
You wouldn’t see one for months and then out of the blue you would notice one in your bathroom or kitchen floor and then it would seem to disappear as quick as it came….
Its the elusive Silverfish.
If you did ever manage to catch one, it usually didn’t live all that long, due to it’s very fragile body and your slightly clumsy Juvenile hands.
Its a very ancient animal, and that’s what adds to it charm.
I probably haven’t seen one for over twenty years now, but you never know, I may see one tonight….
