When I left the house this morning, I had a discomforting feeling. In my shoe.

Sometimes you get a rock in your shoe and it rolls around while you walk making you uncomfortable as it bounces from your toes to your heel. The rock is particularly painful if it rolls under the ball of your foot just as you are taking a step. Today's foreign object in my shoe was more squishy than stony.

I got off the elevator on the first floor and took off my shoe to shake the thing out. My sock seemed moist and a good shake revealed the problem. We've got roaches. The little bugger laid there on his back, his life juices squeezed out of him.

Where did he come from? And more importantly, how many more are there in the house? This is a very bad sign.
