This is a very forced entry and I will be typing as fast as I can. Get it over with as soon as possible, so to speak. Honestly, I don’t want to blog about this, lest you will look down on me and think I am dirty. The truth is I am dreading every second my fingertips runs through this keyboard. Letter by letter my spine is tingling – with anger, with frustration and with lots of creepiness.
There is something inside my keyboard, AGAIN. Right under these plastic letters I am pounding right now is a cockroach that chose the inside of my keyboard as its comfort zone!!
Two minutes ago, I could see the brown, shiny body running around from beneath letters to letters. Now, its dead body is resting, upside down underneath, just between “A” and “W”. Cause of death: asphyxation due to poisoning from “The Original Laxmanrekhaa”, a cockroach killing solution blah blah in chalk form, from India of course.
I arrived this morning ready to work but instead find the resident again so I peppered the roach with chalk powder. My goodness, this has got to stop! I could see him in white cloak and wriggling, antennaes calling for SOS. After two minutes, I succeeded my first murder attempt.
To keep these creepy crawlies away at least for the next couple of days, I have to keep the chalk powder (my keyboard is now gray instead of black) and not wipe it. My fingertips are full of poison. Let’s pray I won’t be senile enough to rub my eyes this afternoon.
