Brittnee and I had a wonderful experience today and I mean it was truly memorable. I made the picture extra large, so people would understand why I was a little freaked out. I mean look at this suckers LEGS I don't really get scared of spiders or bugs. I hate them don't get me wrong, but I can and do kill them. Brittnee on the other hand HATES any type of insect and will not get near them. She deals with them by putting a cup on top of them, so they can't get out and waiting for me to get home so that I can kill it which is fine, but this was no ordinary spider or random bug. This was the BIGGEST COCKROACH I have ever seen!!!
Here is what happened....I was in my room and Brittnee started to scream. This usually means there is a spider in the apartment and I will have to kill it. So, I walk out of my room and look down and I screamed. The thing was HUGE I have never seen one that big and never had to kill one. My experience with cockroaches so far has been with the dead ones when we go to St. George and my mother vacuums them up and they are gone and I don't have to worry about them till the next time we go. Brittnee called her dad and asked him what to do. She wanted me to throw it out the window, but I was all for the toilet it was closer and I didn't want to give it the chance to run away. I also thought about just letting it die because it was on it back and I knew it would die eventually, but Danny said that would take forever, so I was back to the cup and toilet plan.
Let's just say it took me a long time to get the cup over it like close to fifteen minuets ok maybe twenty. Every time I would look down and see those HUGE legs moving I would freak out. The neighbors probably thought we were being tortured because we were so loud.
All I have to say is that this better not happen again. I don't think Brittnee can take it let alone me. We now have the exterminator coming on Thursday and we will be making appointments every month for him to come as well as sealing off the bottom of our cabinets in the bathrooms and kitchen. If I were to get out of the shower and see one another cockroach I would probably have a heart attack.
