If ever a bug could send me screaming, it's a roach!!!
My mother swears this is a true story, and the reason that I am so traumatized by these horrible creatures!
I was 2 years old, sleeping in my bed. The bedspread had those frilly little strings hanging down at the bottom. We had just moved into this house. Mom came in to check on me and said I was squirming a lot in bed, so she turned on the hall light to be able to see me. All over the bed were roaches, hundreds of them!!!!
Needless to say, she took me to her bed that night!
The next day they called the exterminators. Seems there was a panel in my closet that led to the bathroom plumbing...and it was filled with......ROACHES and their EGGS!!!
Is it any wonder I'm traumatized?????
