La cucaracha

The plants at work today were all droopy and sad and appeared as if no one wished them a Merry Christmas or maybe even a Happy Thanksgiving... so I went into the kitchen and got the large pitcher we usually use for the coffee maker and filled it completely up. I then poured this large container of water in the small gardenia plant, which then overflowed onto the filing cabinets everywhere… dern.

So I ran into my boss' office and told him and his brother that I made a disaster and needed them to come move the filing cabinet, ASAP!

So I ran back into the kitchen and started pulling out paper towels, you know when you grab the first one and pull real hard and then they just start spinning outwards....? Well, as I panickly did this, a gigantic cockroach crawled OUT of the cardboard paper towel spindle and UP my arm!!!! UP MY ARM!!!!!!

I went into a straight out writhing-panic-attack mode which may or may not have included shrieking, hysteria, spinning and jumping and a lot of tears…probably some hyperventilating as well.This abrupt chaos then scared the crap out of my boss and co-worker who didn't even SEE the cockroach!

I called my husband later after I composed myself somewhat and told him, 'The worst thing that has ever happened to me, JUST happened!!!!!!" I proceeded to tell him about the 2 foot cockroach and how it climbed all over me and may have even gotten in my hair (I don't exaggerate I promise)!!!! As I finished and waited for his sympathy he took a breath and said, 'Wow, I really thought you were going to say you pooped in your pants."
