I walked up slowly, making sure he wouldn’t know I was there… but then I heard him doing something odd. He was clearly talking to someone, but there was no one around. I wondered if he was having a senior moment. Then I saw who he was talking to: “Hey little buddies!” “I see you there!” “Yes, I see you too!” “How are you guys doing today? It’s not going to be good for you now…” “Sorry!” He was talking to the roaches! I stopped in my tracks and backed away slowly. He was clearly having a moment with these roaches and who am I to interrupt? I had a good laugh as I walked back to my truck. I never let him live that one down!
