One summer

I stayed on campus all summer long to take some classes I couldn’t get in otherwise. The residence halls administration hired a few of us to be on call to remove bats that got into the dorms over the summer. They were relatively easy to remove; there were a few techniques we learned to ensure neither us nor the bats were injured in the process. But it kept us pretty busy. We joked that the campus needed one of the Bat signals to shine in the sky at night to let us know another bat needed rescuing. And yes, that summer my family called me Bat Girl. Those of you old enough will know exactly what I’m talking about.
