So you can see, it was not an ideal situation.
But, as I am an adult, I took care of it. I put a plastic cup on it so that it couldn't hide before I made my game plan, which involved texting Derek and asking him how I should get rid of it. And then I took a picture of it.
And I won't lie - I definitely was afraid that he would shoot his stinky toxins at me and it would escape from the cup. But I don't think he did.
If you'll recall though, Holland has been sound asleep this whole time. He was not sound asleep after I screamed and the cup hit the pavement. To his extreme credit, he woke up yelling, "Kristin!?!??" and sounding very concerned.
Unfortunately, he was not so concerned and/or pleased when I told him that I was just being a responsible adult and throwing a bug outside when it tried to touch me. Which is not cool. And so he went back to bed.
Also unfortunately, I definitely littered.
