disinfecting roaches

I took Kaiser for a quick walk last night and when I returned, I found a hugemangous roach on the floor. This is not unusual; Hawaii has roaches EVERYWHERE. The kind I saw last night on the floor is nicknamed a B52 because of how giant it is. That is not such a big deal. All roaches are icky and should be exterminated. The problem is that is was IN THE HOUSE. NO! Nonononononono!


For a moment we were frozen. I stared at the roach. The roach stared right back at me. I took a slooow step backwards. The roach continued staring at me. It was all ‘What, bitch? Bring it.’


That was all it took to get me in motion. I darted across the kitchen and wrenched open the cabinet under the sink. There was no Raid to be found so I grabbed an aerosol can of Lysol and shot a healthy stream at that bastard. 


It scuttled away under the stove while I shuddered. Was it my imagination or was the roach scuttling a bit crookedly? I’m sure the Lysol killed it, but if it didn’t… that’s the cleanest B52 on this damned island.

Well don’t be jealous of my extensive Hawaiian roach experience. They’re all over the place here. I swear one tried to chase me up the street last night while I was walking Kaiser.
