My Knight in Shining Armor...

I should begin by noting that I am typically a very un-chick-like chick. I was raised with two older brothers, so I am well-versed in fart jokes, drinking beer from a can, chewing with my mouth open, and (as they were much larger than me) guerilla warfare. I rarely get all squeamish when confronted with spider or other things with more than four legs, but recently....

I'd left my car at my manfriend's apartment [at a certain point, you and your significant other become too old to be considered "girlfriend" or "boyfriend"...he is thus my "manfriend"] in the early evening, as his place is closer to work than mine is, and we just took his car from there when we went out. After dinner, we went back to retreive it and he was going to follow me to my place so I could let my dogs out (I have three, but their introductions will be the subject of a subsequent post).

As soon as I pulled out of the parking lot, I looked up and saw the world's biggest cockroach on my windshield...on the INSIDE of my windshield...RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME, as if mocking me. I am not kidding, this was kind of cockroach you could throw a saddle on and give small children pony rides.

I screeched and immediately pulled the car off the road.

My manfriend was driving immediately behind me, and he stopped and hurried over to my car to see what was wrong. Of course, by now I had bolted and was standing outside the car with the driver's side door open, shivering and totally icked-out. He asked what was wrong and I screamed "COCKROACH! IN CAR!" By this point, it had disappeared from the windshield and was nowhere to be seen. And I did not want to get back in my car until the fucker had been caught and destroyed. This being obvious, he asked if I wanted to drive his car to my house and he could drive mine. I quietly said, "uh huh....."

After we got back to my house, he searched the car for the offending infiltrator, but of course found nothing. He assumes it crawled into a vent and back out. I'm gonna go with that, because otherwise I will never be able to get into my car again.

He must have thought that was the funniest thing he'd seen from me yet. I am not a girly-girl by any stretch of the imagination, and I typically handle bugs on my own, if not valiantly and bravely, at least effectively. But, man, I devolved into screaming sorority-girl over that damn bug. To his credit, he didn't say anything. Nevertheless, I appreciate him saving me.

Too bad you didn't kill the nasty little bugger. I myself can't stand it when I walk into a spider web. It gives me the pee shivers.

Looking forward to reading more of you.

That's just ONE reason to keep a good "manfriend" around!
