It’s a fact of life in Florida that no matter how clean you keep your living space, you will occassionally encounter a Palmetto bug or cockroach inside your house or apartment. Especially if you live in an apartment since they like to live and travel within the various ducts that connect everything.
So this morning I went to the bathroom and as I’m sitting there, my dog comes to visit me. She does this when we’re alone because she always needs to be stuck by my side so she knows where I am at all times.
Anyways, as I’m sitting doing my business, a Palmetto bug runs out from behind the cabinet to the door. I immediately pull my dog back because I don’t want her eating it.
The bug meanwhile decides to run towards my right foot, so I lift it off the floor. Leeshka uses this as an opportunity to bolt for the couch in the living room. In that instant, I lose sight of where the bug is and, thinking it made a beeline for my left foot, I set down my right to lift up my left.
I hear the crack immediately and then feel it wriggle under my foot.
Yes, I have just smashed the bug with the ball of my foot…my bare foot, I might add.
Let’s all pause for the big “ewwww!”
Finishing up, I flushed the bug down the toilet, scrubbed about 20 layers of skin off the bottom of my foot and went back to the living room, where I saw Leeshka up on the couch bravely getting over her shock and fear.
