In my time of the 33rd century cockroaches am long-extinct. Their extermination am considered pinnacle of human civilization. This am because cockroaches am purveyors of filth and having no other reason for existing.
Since arriving in the 21st century am having many opportunity to study firsthand. Am becoming next-door apartment neighbor with functioning alcoholics and sticky, sticky bottles. Am moving into old hoarder house (old house, old hoarder) where roaches am drop from holes in ceiling like SAS commandos. Am also living next to trees. Trees! Turns out trees am natural habitat of cockroach.
It am extra-frustrating when realizing that most things am edible to cockroaches: dead cockroaches, cardboard, hair, goddamn soap. Truly, cockroach am invention of Satan. It am major source of adult trauma. Am sharing this because you am knowing what they say: Trauma shared am trauma shared.
