I feel like I’ve misled you a little. I’ve not shown you an accurate portrayal of my day to day life here in Switzerland and I’m feeling somewhat guilty about this. I post pictures of mountains, and cows, and rambling rivers, and flowers, and beer bottles that I’ve painted gold (or pink). But I never post the ugly bits, the annoying bits, the bits that might make you think twice before shoving all of your worldly belongings into a garage and moving to the country of chocolate and cheese and trains that run on time. Yeah, I guess I did post, way back when, about our blocked toilet issue, but since then I’ve kept it clean and pretty.
I’ve recently come across something disturbing which has made me Google “cockroaches in Switzerland” several times yesterday and today. I found one bug under my laundry hamper and another in the elevator…most likely coming up to our floor to join the cockroach party. I don’t have any previous experience with cockroaches, but I do know that I really don’t want to deal with an infestation. I’ve survived a bed bug infestation so cockroaches can’t be that bad, can they? Plus, cockroaches don’t bite, right? I’m getting the heebie-jeebies just thinking about it. I’m going to keep my eyes open for any other signs of bug activity. And try to remember not to step on them because apparently that just spreads their eggs around if it’s a female. Ew. So gross and so not fabulous.
I have no pretty picture to accompany this post. #sorrynotsorry
