A part of my soul dies every time I see a roach.

No, seriously. I think an actual part of my soul actually dies.


Anywhoo, my little sister called home last night because her dorm (being in the middle of rural Virginia) was plagued with stinkbugs, and she couldn’t sleep, out of fear of the infestation.

Having had to deal with these kinds of fears myself (having stayed in Haiti and in New York City), I gave her my super secret (and super OCD) tips on how to avoid contact with the creepy crawlies when it was time to go to sleep.

And now I will share them with you. See? You guys are like family to me.

As long as you follow these steps, you can have a good night, sleep tight, and not let the bedbugs bite. Stay vigilant, my friends.
