When God created man...
everything was still heaven.....
Inspite of the introduction of Man...
the advent of the insects....
Cockroaches came, saw, conquered
and all hell broke loose....
The problem is not with their existance, it is with infringment. I have butcherd many, beaten them to pulp. Literally took the life outta them, but they refuse to leave. They have taken a liking to the vicinity that I understand as mine.
The other day, a couple of cockroaches trespassed into the media lab, I mean what guts! Entering the very same area that the rest of the world detests....
Ree screams at the top of her lungs, 'Yuck!' mumm mumm mumm... thats how she blabbers at times...
"Sadie cockroach!" I was like, what?! I was stick insect first and now Iam cockroach, as I rehearsed which gaali to use, she exclaimed, "cockroach hai yahan pe!!"
Then began the hunt. I got ready for the kill.
Step one: Search for chappal, bathroom slippers nahi chalega...
Proper chappals so that the insides of the insect do not spoil the newly acquired 100 buck footwear. It is always good to carry your weapon...cos some of them fly, cockroaches I mean..
Sadly no one has invented a weapon to kill them, HIT kills you more than the cockroach and then you feel you might as well let it live...
Step two: Brooms are of good use, to beat anyone for that matter..But this step is to first search for the 'roach (cocky doesn sound good so...) every possible place, under the table, behind curtains..they love corners but are very restless, keep running back and forth, run behind them.
If they go into those godforsaken nooks and corners, follow them. Remember, that thing is your aim. Its hit and win!
Step three: Dont give up. You will always have other ppl around you, active audience in terms of " abey vahan hai, idhar hai.. kya kar rahi ha yaar, dekh bhaag gaya phir se..saala" ('roaches are always addressed with the male norms of name calling, hmmm..)
Dont lose focus..
Step four: Now that you have wasted too much time, catch the damn thing! Hit ones, it will look at you, with an extremely boring expression and say
'roach- "Dude Wassup?"
Me- "Bloody thats exactly where Iam gonna send you, up!"
'roach- " heheheehe" (runs)
'roach- "catch me if you can!"
Me- phat! phat! phat! catch me if you can, it seems! phew..
'roach-wriggles, stirs, antennae squashed, eyes displaced..
but smirk intact..
'roach-no movement, dead and gone...RIP
Step five: look for accomplices...they never attack alone..
If you find some more...repeat step 1 to 5..
Step six: throw the crap in the dustbin, use paper....give it a 'whatever' look
Step seven: Let the victory sink in, rejoice! ;)
Well, now that I have provided you with a comprehensive guide 'to kill a mocking cockroach', I hope my services would not be required anymore, right Ms Ree?
You did a pretty good job in the morning, I heard...
I hope next time "Cockroach!! Where is Sadie??" will not be uttered in the same breath....
