The exterminator stared at me, strangely, with his cockroach-killing contraption in hand. "No problem. It's my job," he said finally.
"I know, but still…" I couldn't stop smiling, even after I shut the door after him.
Cockroaches are one of the things I hate most in this world. Yes, I know they have a place in our environment--they play a very important role in waste disposal and blah, blah, blah…
They also carry 30 diseases and like to multiply at rates faster than I can kill them. No amount of cleaning and Raid-spraying could stop the dang creatures from crawling into my apartment from other areas in my very-infested building (yuck!). So when the exterminator came to rid my home of the nasty beasts, I was overjoyed.
In remembering those vanquished roaches, I got to thinking about all the other things in this world I despise, and since this month's posts have been full of love for my parents, my son, my readers and my other half, I figured I might as well show the other side of the love-hate coin.
Here are the 10 Things I Despise Most in this World:
6. Insomnia 7. Liars 8. Depression 9. Root Canals 10. Natural Disasters
