Hairspray Ninja

I just had to share that I chased a two-inch long cockroach out the front door last night. I was in bed watching a movie, got up to go to the bathroom, and when I turned on the light TWO cockroaches ran across the floor.

One normal sized, which I hairsprayed to death in the sink.

The second was GINORMOUS. And apparently afraid of hairspray. I chased him to the front door but he was so big he wouldn't fit underneath. I cracked it open and "encouraged" him in that direction, and he scurried his ugly butt towards the stairs.

I am a hairspray-weilding ninja. Don't mess with me.

And yes, there were some girly screams involved.

Geez, you should have handed him the broom and had him clean up a bit before he left. ICK!

I thought about it, but the image of him getting stuck in my broom deterred me.

Gross.

You have great hairspray-fu and I am envious of your courage. I would have run outside and let him have the house!

Two inches! That's the reason I like it up north. The cold keeps us free of monster bugs.

I'd normally have let him have the run of the house (like I do with little spiders) but this guy was NASTY. I didn't want him crawling all over things or to accidentally step on him in the middle of the night.
