Just a quick cleaning of that bad spot on the wall, I said to myself.

The kicker is that there’s a certain satisfaction in watching the little bugs desperately running around like Bond villain minions at the end of the movie. You can forget you’re destroying your own house and revel in just blowing things up. Yesss.
