Another roach crisis

(clipped from a comment I left on another blog)

The other night something tickled my arm as I sat in my easy chair. I looked down. It was a roach crawling on me. It must have flown onto me! Gah! So I shriek incoherently and bat at it (waking poor hubby up from a sound sleep and he starts yelling too) and it LANDS ON MY LEG AND STARTS CRAWLING UP MY SHORTS.

At least I had the presence of mind to set the laptop down gently on the floor before I ran screaming out of the room.

    There is nothing worse than when a cockroach lands on your person. I had one flying around a tent when we went camping a couple of years ago, and it flew right onto my finger, and dug it’s barbed legs into my poor little pinky. I shrieked and ran around the campsite creating havoc, and shook it off my finger. Even the fiance was freaked out when he eventually caught it.

    Amazing how people can completely freak out but still protect things that are important.

    I am also highly amused by the highly relavant ads from Google, lol.
