Cockroaches seriously creep me out, and I find it weird how I can run into them 29 stories up in a rather exclusive apartment in Shanghai. My girlfriend and I saw it scuttle somewhere, couldn't find it, so I left it alone for a bit. I'm at my laptop and I hear my guitar pluck a string on its own behind me. I turn around and lo-and-behold there's a cockroach on the twelfth fret. I stand up and he crawls INTO the soundhole! I'm not sure how to get him out so I leave to grab the vacuum cleaner, but first I stick a piece of paper in between the strings and the soundhole to keep him inside. When I come back I find that he's snuggled up in the nook of my guitar's carrying strap. I never thought he would be able to crawl out so I think there's in fact 2 cockroaches. But I think there's only one. Time will tell, if another one crawls out of the soundhole. Anyways, they freak me out. The only other place I've run into one is at a rather nasty hotel in Sichuan, China. Just out of curiosity, do you guys run into them often at your household? I always thought cockroaches only frequented the filthiest of abodes. [Edit] I don't know if I'll ever be able to play my guitar again without thinking of cockroaches. Should I clean it? I'm worried that Chinese cockroaches carry disease.
