I often write of pet friendly homes in Boca Raton. NOTE: I do not consider Palmetto Bugs to be pet friendly!
It was early morning. I walked out to get the newspaper, came in and felt something on my neck. I brushed it off. When I saw this giant Palmetto bug, I near died. It was almost the size of my dogs! (not really but he was big!) I screamed. Richard grabbed a shoe and ran after him.
The Palmetto ran in my closet. Now I was hysterical. These guys move fast. Richard said what was I carrying on about; it was just a bug. Just a BUG? Was he kidding? In my closet? While he was looking for the bug, I was having an anxiety attack and emptying the entire closet.
No, I didn't find the bug in the closet or anywhere else. I hope he took off at top speed never to be seen again, but we will look again tomorrow. Yuck! Yuck! Yuck!
Thank you, Margaret Rome.
