A Dead Roach
Ok, we’ve already lived here a month but I’m still considering this our welcome. A while back I killed a small roach in our kitchen. Charles told me about this roach chalk stuff that the roaches won’t cross. I found this at the store, it looks like sidewalk chalk but I get the feeling its not safe for children. Apparently it works. This one didn’t get far from one of my chalk lines before he rolled onto his back and started spewing whatever that fluid is. I took some pictures before taking him out of his misery and disposing of him.

    EW. EW EW EW EW! Yea, I’m pretty sure you are right about that stuff not being safe for children. Probably not for animals or humans of any kind for that matter! Did I say Ew yet? Ew!

    Wow Bob, Heather. I just got to reading about your travels.

    Is this move permanent? Permanent-ish?

    Permanent-ish. We did 3 months in Ukraine and now we’re pulling a minimum 12 month stay in India. I joke that it’s like being in the military but the pay is better :)

    Speaking of roaches, I killed the biggest one I’ve ever seen this morning. It was 3+ inches long, and was chasing me around the kitchen….. all I wanted was a cup of coffee! LOL, anyhoo, he’s now sleeping with the fishes, but ewwww it was gross. :)
