Um, so I went into my kitchen this morning and found this in my sink. Trying to crawl OUT of my sink, actually. Luckily, the sink was NOT full of dishes, and he couldn't seem to make it up the smooth sides of the stainless steel sink.
There was screaming. Oh yes. There was quite a bit of screaming. Um, the picture has nothing for perspective, but the thing was HUGE. At one point I even put the cat in the sink to see if she could take care of the... problem. Unfortunately she was more interested in eating her breakfast that I had foolishly already served. She assured me that she would be back later, but really, how much do you trust a housecat? She prefers flying insects anyway.
So after much shrieking and some wailing and then considering and rejecting several possibilities for exterminating the bug (i.e. calling the boy (or zlionsfan) at 7:30am to come over and assist) I did what any girl would do in my position. I took a picture for my blog (with mega zoom because there was no way in HELL I was getting close to the bug that I was sure had the single minded purpose of sucking my brain out,) and then turned on the water.
I won't go into how long it took to drown him. How much of a fight he put up, and how he could actually withstand the highest water pressure I could turn on in my sink. Not only withstand it, but continue crawling forward. Holy Shit!
In related news, I'm moving out tonight. Anyone want to come help me pack?
