lau vs. larvae

that's right. a couple days ago i noticed a few little brown specks on top of my trash can lid, but i didn't think much of it. then today, as i was actually taking the trash bag out of the trash (which is always disgusting in the hot humidity) i noticed many more brown specks on the underside of the trash can lid. then i noticed one was moving. oooooh yeah. larvae, baby. (i realize that phrase is redundant). what kind of larvae, you may wonder? well i'm no expert, but i'm guessing roaches.

was i a little grossed out by this realization? maybe a tad bit. but mostly i was overjoyed for discovering the little suckers before they hatched! i went outside and scraped off every single one and then let the lid roast in the sun... just to be sure.

lau: 1
larvae: 0

the battle continues!

Benin sounds a lot like Florida -- in that way, at least.
