to show you this:
This beast, a native NZ cockroach dammit, had got inside the house. It crawled/fell on to the chair I was sitting on in the sunroom yesterday, and then crawled up to the neckline of my jersey and down my neck, down my shoulder and on to my clavicle. I felt it and yelled loudly (shrieked, more like it). I stripped off my jersey and shook it out but didn't see the beast escape. Off into the bedroom I went to find a different top. I thought I had better check it had left my body, so I took off my bra - OH F*CK!! There it was, on the side of my breast having settled in the bra. AAARRRGGGHHH!!!
I shook it off hurriedly and noted that I had flung it down near the armchair. Out to the kitchen, barechested, to find the insect spray and I sprayed the living sh*t out of any insect in that corner of the bedroom.
Didn't see the beast though.
Tonight, as I was lowering the blinds, I noticed a shiny thing by the skirting board. I was extremely brave and picked it up with a tissue. Sure enough it was the beast - much bigger than it looked yesterday as I flung it away from me. At least 4cm, including feelers, with body length of at least 2cm - AAARRRGGGHHH!!!
It has now been unceremoniously flushed down the dunny. I hope that is a lesson to its extended family not to get familiar with me and my torso! Or my house ...
