The Exterminator

Time: 9:30 pm

Location: Our flat

*CG and I are sitting in the dark as there was no power and the generator hadn’t kicked in yet*

Me: This is peaceful… I like it this way..

CG: Wait till your phone runs out of battery. 

Me: Buzzkill…

CG: And by the way, there’s a cockroach near your leg. 

Me: Uggggh… Damn bug! I’ll kill it!

*I take my slippers*

CG: Dude! C’mon… Don’t kill it like that…Kill it with some dignity.

Me: And what would that be?

CG: Use a bug spray or something.

Me: Fine…..

*CG gets the bug spray and sprays it judiciously*

Me: Dude! It’s bug spray! Not a deo!

CG: Ummmm… Duh!

Me: Stop spraying so much! It’s just one cockroach!

*CG finally stops spraying*

CG: This how you kill a bug with dignity…

*After five minutes*

Me: Dude! The cockroach is still alive!

CG: F*** this sh*t! 

*CG takes his slippers and starts whacking the cockroach*

CG: There! Done! It’s dead! 

Me: What happened to ‘killing with dignity’?

CG: Desperate times call for desperate measures! 

Me: You’re such a b*tch!

CG: Well, f*** you too!
