My Hero

The other day, while making this fabulous dinner, I felt something jump on my leg. Instantly, I froze, a childhood memory came flooding back.

I was young, and my mom and dad were still married. They were playing cards on the coffee table while I bounced around them in my pajama-tee. I felt something on my shirt and looked down and screamed. There, clinging to my shirt and crawling upward, was a big, ugly cockroach. I still shudder thinking about it.
Despite that the current critter on my leg was not a cockroach, still did not ease my fears. I screamed and the thing spread it’s wings and jumped off. I ran out of the kitchen and stared at it from a safe distance. It was definitely of the cockroach family.
Then, much to my surprise, Bogey stepped in. My hero ♥ .
Are you going to cry??? Louie asked as soon as he walked in.


Louie may have killed the nasty thing, but Bogey is still my hero. I’m pretty sure he would have ate him and even though that’s disgusting, it wouldn’t have mattered because it would’ve been gone. I love my second baby.
