Ballpoint Pen on Moleskine Ruled Notebook
The world is full of pests. The most annoying are those orthopterous insects in the family Blattidae. They move their flattened bodies rapidly. They are supposed to be nocturnal but when she was a young woman Isabella saw them at her friends' apartments. They loved to appear during parties probably disturbed by the noise of the revelers and the smell of food.
That is why Isabella did not cook. She had an asthenic figure and had to buy her clothes in the Junior's department. She was a Size 0 and the adult section of her favorite apparel store started at Size 3.
So she ate at her friends' and they loved to dote on her because of her charming personality. She hated cockroaches. One flew smacked right into her ear one night when she was dating a young handsome man in the tropics where cockroaches flew and harassed people. She hates them with a passion.
And A Little Side Discussion:
"Don't kill a cockroach with a shotgun."
I said to my daughter one day.
"Mommy, cockroaches don't have blood."
"Then where did the pool of blood come from?",
"Not from the cockroach."
Then I added,
"It's best to just squish them with your foot."
"Some solutions have a certain unexpected finality."
