The only thing I miss about having a roommate is having someone there to kill the occasional roach. I am absolutely terrified of roaches. When it rains – and we’ve had a lot lately, I will find a roach or two in my apartment. The big kind. The big flying kind. Since I have started dating, I am realizing that many men are also terrified of roaches. That has now become a prerequisite for dating me. If you can’t kill a roach and dispose of it, you are not allowed to hit this.

That simple.

Does anybody know how roaches get on their back when they die? You’d think after they ingested poison, they’d just collapse on their front, too weak to so a freaking summersault. How the heck does that happen?

Oh my gosh. I have a freaking ladybug infestation. They smell and they are horrible. I am getting a vaccum with a hose today so that I can just suck them up and never have to think about them again.

Ummm ... I think the fact that you HAVE roaches is going to deter most men who aren't wearing a YES 90125 tour shirt and a MACK hat.

Clean your dishes once in a while.

cockroaches--- I think it probably has to do with a death spasm, then the aerodynamics/weight distribution when falling.

I'm just guessing, I wonder if there is a grant available for some research.

IT'S SATAN! Yep, he personally flips every bug over on their backs.

I'm the bug destroyer. Except hairy spiders; I shoot them Windex until they die, then suck em up in the vacuum.
