Just yesterday night, I met with this being and that too in my kitchen! My inner sanctum.. and what not! its the only place where I feel I get a modicum of privacy.. and this being infiltrated it!!
So I angrily demanded this being-thing to leave and also asked where it came from!
Indignant, it replied that it has been around long before ‘we’ human-things were born and has survived heat, humidity, ice age and what not.. and that its very much possible that I have ‘its’ blue blood in my veins. How dare I ask him to leave when its beings like ‘me’ who have taken over its world.. besides, is this how I talk to my elders? Is this the ‘sanskaar’ my mother taught me? it haughtily inquired!
Outraged beyond limits, I took up a weapon ( A broom and a scoop) and it flashed its antlers… It was a battle well fought. It hid behind the LPG.. I moved the cylinder and attacked. It flew to me I ducked and retreated. After 5 minutes of intense combat it retreated behind the darkest corner , out of my reach.
Sweety, my lab, came to rescue and did something I thought was impossible.. It made the already messy kitchen even more messier 😦 😦
Not to be outwitted, I used “MORTIEN”. And thats how I got rid of the cockroach..
P.S: All the brickbats go to Navin.. 😛 he inspired me to write about cockroaches.. not the way he thought.. but what the hell 😀 😀
