Our anniversary was on September 10th and we had a power failure for two hours. Then the night got better... I saw a roach (Periplaneta americana) on the wall over the pantry door. My husband, the official bug killer of the house was asleep, and I didn't have the heart to wake him. So I grabbed the can of Raid and I sprayed the roach AND IT FLEW RIGHT AT ME! The hysterical woman screams that ensued woke my husband anyway and he came running over to see why I was screaming. We both looked but couldn't find the roach. I always demand to see the body and I was very disappointed that we couldn't find it.
Later, I went into the kitchen for some water and I saw the roach lying on its back on the floor and I got the dustpan and the broom to pick it up and throw it into the trash. Well, the effing thing FLEW AT ME A SECOND TIME! More screaming ensued while I proceeding to hit it with the broom and finally kill it.
How many people get attacked by the same roach twice?
It's unheard of...
I had the heebie jeebies for the rest of the night.
