conversation

Andrew: Mom, have you ever seen a cockroach in our house, besides the one we had as a pet?

Me: No, we don't have cockroaches in our house.

Andrew:  Yes we do!

Me: No, we don't!

Andrew:  Mom, cockroaches are everywhere, we have them.

Me:  Andrew, you aren't telling people we have cockroaches in our house are you?

Andrew (after a moment of hesitation):  No.

Me:  Because you usually get them when your house is a health hazard, and I don't want people thinking our house is a health hazard.

Andrew: But mom, cockroaches are everywhere.

Me:  sigh...

yuck. We had cockroaches in our first apartment. John didn't want to kill them, so he would try to trap them and they almost always got away. I really hope cockroaches aren't everywhere.
