Darling Husband just texted to tell me he killed a huge cockroach in my bathroom.
Our apartment complex is totally clean; this is only the second roach we have seen in the over two years we’ve lived there (which is pretty impressive for the swampy Northern Virginia area). The first one was in a different apartment (same complex) and he was in the bathroom first thing in the morning. I turned on the light and the little f*cker started running towards me. It was like the steamroller scene in Austin Powers, where I stood there shrieking but making no effort to move out of his path. Darling Husband thankfully dispatched him.
Now he says this one was coming out of my sink, so he just “put the drain down and cut him in half.”
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF TELLING ME THIS STORY?!?!?! Now I will be watching the drain for roaches every time I’m in there! I can’t help wishing he’d kept this little tidbit to himself.

@iarebridezilla: I can understand how you feel. I saw two cockroaches in the same week and I keep my apartment spotless. I was so grossed out and wanted to move. Hahaha. Luckily, I haven’t seen any since, but I’m going to knock on wood.

AHHHHHHH!!!! I’d be freaking out too! I totally agree—if there’s a gross insect that was kindly disposed of, please please please don’t tell me or else I’ll obsess over where his friends are living!

@GroovyHippieChick: haha I think he was proud of himself for taking care of it? But to me that’s like sending someone a picture of a really big turd. You may be proud of yourself, but I assure you nobody else is.

hahahaha this is awesome!!!!!
Horrible to go through but awesome.
We normally have a super clean house as well, but my MiL had a terrible roach infestation. She moved in with us, and now I have traps everywhere as a preventitive.
I friggin hate roaches.
If I see one, I spray it with Raid then trap it under the can or a bucket for hubby to deal with when he gets home, even if that is hours and hours later.

Use some borax, its detergent soap, but everytime I moved into a new apartment and/or home I put some alongside the baseboards and on the floors and under the sinks and the roach infestation was no more.
