Does 2 of something equal an infestation?  Well if it's 2 cockroaches it should.

Yesterday I was going to plug my hair straightener into my power strip, when I saw the carcass of a cockroach sitting right there next to it all, "Yo!"

I didn't scream! I swear! (Proud?) But I did make a face kind of like this:
Thankfully the boyfriend was here and leapt into action.  By that I mean he casually leaned over, picked the damn thing up with his fingers (sorry Vidya, I think you were just shown-up) and tossed it in the trash.

My hero!

My concern is that the cockroach looked smaller than the previous one (this should be a good thing!) and I think it's because one or both of my cats (probably Lilah) ate the chewy nougat center, leaving only the crunchy shell behind.
(I can only imagine that this is what she saw.)

My wife always yells for me, but I'm not about to pick one up with my bare fingers.

Who is the bigger hero here? Lilah or your boyfriend?

Liz said...

Ooo that is an excellent question. If Lilah was the one who killed it then I think the gold star goes to her - but I don't have proof. They are both heroes in my book.
