I Hear Tuba

Armadillidiidae vulgare.  common pill-bug.

When I was a kid, my brother and I used to play with these.  We called them rolly-polies.  It was funny how they curled up into little balls when we tried to pick them up–like insect armadillos.  I was watching this pillbug running around on my doorstep and I couldn’t help but think of the episode from Family Guy where Stewie is following fat people around with a tuba.  I was following this little guy with my camera with that song in my head.
