Roaching Drama



Apparently, the sight of one of these on my bed is deserving of instantly yelping/tossing our laptop off my lap and onto the floor & finding hideaway by scurrying to the floor, crouched down in fetal position ... (okay, not quite fetal position, but, well -- almost)

WHY IS IT ON MY BED??!! I promise we're at least clean enough to let cockroaches know they are not welcome.
And the truth is, I spotted him an hour earlier on a pillow on the floor (before he disappeared under my bathrobe) and sat on Paul's side of the bed just to avoid him ... but he of course plotted against me and tickled my arm ... that filthy roach.
 
(A roach with which I'm color coordinating)

(A cricket?.. I could handle - unfortunately those are practically living with us so much they should be paying rent! But a roach - somehow it's just psychologically disturbing)

So one time i was in bed asleep and one crawled across my arm... way to close to my face. I thought I was going to die!!! They are just awful!

I feel your pain. I have had them crawl on me in bed before-so not fun.

Oh I hate finding anything crawling in my bed!! I found a little spider in our bed the other night. I have to say though, I would rather find a roach in my bed than a spider any day!.

My dearest Bre---I never got your email!!!!!!! I was so excited to see it, and-alas!-it was not in my inbox. Send it again, please. Also, I can't find the paper where I wrote your phone numbers down, so if you still have mine, I would love to talk to you. I miss talking to you! Hope all is well.

I agree, I can handle crickets, but hate the roaches, those big, yucky sewer ones. We have seen more of them this year, for some reason. Yuck.
