Note to self: work a little harder pretending to be normal.

Before we left for India, I told my roommates that during monsoon season the flat  sometimes has large palmetto bugs (large flying cockroaches).  I assured them that we wouldn’t have any this time of year.

This gave my roommates an idea to prank me at 4:00AM this morning. They put rubber cockroaches on the floor of my bathroom.

A normal person would scream or jump.  Nope, not me. I say,  “Come look at this cool bug on the floor.  Oh, there’s another one.  It’s strange, it has the wings of a coakroach but it has stubby antennae and it’s legs are too short.  Maybe it’s some sort of beetle”   I proceed to take pictures of it and try to make it move with my finger and realize it’s rubber.

    Either it is what Utah Phillips said Frypan Jack called a “tramp roach” , or someone has your number.
