Bepples
2001 Personal Account

(2001) I have a strange ex-boyfriend (doesn't everyone) who was the mad-inventor type. He was always devising clever schemes. He would come out of the bathroom with a revolutionary idea for a toilet paper holder.

One afternoon we were driving in the country when we noticed strange round balls hanging from the trees. We stopped to pick a bunch. They were amazingly light, and when you cut them open, they looked a bit like Styrofoam.

Wow! A cheap natural packing material! No petroleum reserves depleted! We named them "bepples" and I put our collection on my mantle. Eventually my ex-boyfriend moved out into his own place. As a playful house-warming surprise, I put a few bepples in his medicine chest.

One day I came home from work and noticed a large swarm of sickly wasp-like creatures flying around my apartment. It only took me a short time to realize that the bepples were really dormant wasp nests!

I quickly alerted my ex, and threw out the bepples before any harm could come to me or my cat.
