I was sweeping the floors and rocking out to classic rock (70s music motivates me for cleaning). FYI life in the desert means endless sweeping up desert sand and dust. I had just put some debris into the dustpan and for some reason I was looking closely at the stuff in the dustpan (a white dust pan is good for that) and suddenly I saw that distinctive body shape that equals SCORPION. But the size of like a pin head. Seriously. Here is a photo of what that speck looked like in the dust pan - check out upper right dark spot.
This is what that speck looked like when I zoomed the iPhone camera in.
