A bat flew into my house one night, flying non-stop around the living room in circles and causing my son, my husband (although he wouldn't admit it) and me to fall into a state of abject terror because: 1. It's a bat. 2. My husband was convinced that bats are flying petri dishes of deadly diseases, including Sars and Ebola and other yet-to-be-discovered but highly-transmissible bats-to-human viruses. And he wouldn't stop saying that even as we ducked on the floor, scared of getting hit in the head by a missile bat.
"Bats are full of viruses!" he yelled over the screaming.
