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 in down my neck, and 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 is was, on the side of my breast having settled in the bra. AAARRRGGGHHH!!!
I shook it off hurriedly and noted that it 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 ...
