Feeling Buggy!

Last night I had trouble sleeping...because there is a GIANT FLYING COCKROACH in my bedroom!  I first spotted the bug in my bathroom, during hurricane Irene, but as soon as I was able to get something to smack it with, it disappeared and I hadn't seen it since....until last night.  I saw this thing crawling on my wall, then it glided across the room and landed on my bookcase.  Needless to say, I was pretty freaked about this thing flying around my bedroom and let out a scream (thankfully my upstairs neighbor was out).  I armed myself with a broom and waited, and waited.  It felt like I was in a horror movie, I was nervously looking around for any sudden movements and jerking my head around at any small noise, armed with my trusty broom. Finally around 3:00 am the bug made one final appearance before it disappeared.  I may have smacked it with the broom, but there was no giant cockroach carcass to be found...Ok perhaps I'm exaggerating a bit about the size, but it was definitely an inch long.  I couldn't sleep and I'm not sure what time I ended up drifting off, but it was probably close to 5:00 am.  I'm at my boyfriend's house right now, and I'm afraid to go back home!  I'm not even sure where this thing came from!  When researching, I read that they are more prevalent down I'm not sure what this thing is doing in my bedroom!  I couldn't even bring myself to post a picture of a real flying cockroach since I'm still feeling a big buggy.  I think that writing about it is making me think about it too much, so I'm ending this post now!

I didn't know they could fly either! When that thing flew across the room I screamed! Haven't had a sighting yet, but I'm waiting for him!
