I'm wide awake now. Damn roaches

All cleaned up and ready to go to bed, something flew pass behind me.
I took a glance at the corner of the table, right behind my toiletry bag, chilling on the roll of tissue... a cockroach.

Then I ran down to get my ever faithful (or so I thought), Baygon Aerosol.
After Deng got the bright idea of using a wooden peg to clip its antennae to slow it down, it released itself and scurried underneath the bed and eventually hid behind one of the legs. In between releasing itself and running for cover, I was aiming and firing but my trusty weapon of choice failed me. The damn particles wouldn't come out. I think the button was stuck. I jumped out of its way in case it decided it was going to run out of control and into my feet. I took my eyes of it to avoid the table but alas, it escaped! It was a fugitive for the first 5 minutes (oh trust me, that 5 minutes was the longest 5 minutes ever) but thank god I have a high IQ and figured out where it was hiding =)

I took my position and it was "PZZZZZZZZZ" and "PZZZZZ" again... and again... and again... until it ran into the bathroom with it's six hairy legs.

At this point, Jonathan came with his slipper and *WHACK*. Bullseye.
But then he *whack*-ed again... and again.

I passed him some tissue to remove the flattened corpse but he laid it on the corpse and *WHACK*-ed one more time. He wanted to be sure.
It is now a THOROUGHLY flattened corpse.

I think it achieved contact with my feet while scurrying into the bathroom. I'M NOT SURE! It could've been the floor mat but it felt like a six-legged creepy crawly touched me. Eww.
