I went to the Javits Center for a Food Service industry trade show. One exhibitor was a sanitation and cleaning company, and gave away
rubber bugs as a gag gift. I took a rubber roach and put it my pocket.
I joined up with friends for dinner and with my BFF sitting next to me, I asked her “Can you babysit this?” and put the roach on the
table next to her. People can jump pretty high from a seated position! Worse, she dug her nails in my arm out of sheer fright
and held on for a looooong time. I might not want to try another stunt that like next time.
