Attack roach sends young son into retreat
I remember when my son, Abel, was about 1 or 2 years old and still in diapers. I was at home, just watching TV, when I noticed a cockroach. I figured I'd show my son how to kill them with a rubber slipper. I got the slipper, did the motion and everything in front of him. Shortly after that, he got the idea.
Well, a little later, I heard the slipper hit the floor. I looked up to see my son running by, and right behind him was a cockroach.
When he tried to kill the roach, he missed and was running away. It just so happened the roach ran the same way, so it looked like the roach was chasing him.
