I did it! I killed my very first roach! I am terrified of them...for those of you unfamiliar with the pterodactyls we have down here - they are ginormous! Seriously. They could probably rival a small sparrow. I was really really scared and it took about 10 minutes of shoe throwing and jumping around but I finally manned up and smashed him. Unfortunately I am too scared to pick the remaining half of his body up...think I can get the movers to do it for me tomorrow?
