cockroach infestation!

For the past 2 weeks, i've been killing cockroaches at the rate of 1 or 2 per night.

At first, the cockroaches were mostly in the communal toilet and i didn't give much of a damn. But when they started becoming bigger and started to appear elsewhere, like on the walls outside the toilet or on the dining table, i sounded the alarm to my mum.

She concluded with her spider-senses that the dining table itself might be harbouring the tiny monstrosities. You see, the table has an extendable portion that can be pulled out when there isn't enough space on the table, and my mum thought the critters could be camping in there.

True enough, they were!

My dad, armed with insecticide, bravely crawled under the table to assault the enemy from behind while my brother pulled out the extension.

A million cockroaches fell to their deaths with a spurt of the insecticide!

But that's not the entire army! Apparently, more were lurking in the dark corners of the kitchen!

Thus, the day became a massive insect-hunt.

Everything that could be removed was removed and everywhere that could be doused in insecticide was shimmery and wet.

A few hours later, i went into the kitchen and to my horror, a sea of dead corpses, with their six feet in the air, greeted me.

A few of them actually managed to escape being gassed, but not for long!

They wouldn't know what hit them. Maybe it's cockroach heaven to die in tissue paper.

Clouds are soft, white and fluffy too.

I don't want you to think of me as an eavesdropper so I'll just say that I'm listening to music instead of my neighbour's maid flirting with my other neighbour's driver.


I like it when people think of me as an intellectual so I will list a bunch of intellectual-sounding books here, even those I don't plan to read.


Since I can't list my porn collection here, I'll just leave it this way until I can force myself to watch non-pornographic stuff, which may or may not happen.
