A Special Edition of The East Village
OLATHE BULLETIN Mary Griego went and got Pete to bring a vacuum cleaner so she could vacuum up the cookie crumbs and crepe snippets left over from Family Night, and while he was here Bitsy asked him if he ever cleaned the outside sidewalks; there was a huge cockroach out there was what catalyzed her question. Pete stepped out then and just stomped the giant bug. Bitsy said something like, "Woof, you've got bugjuice jammed up in your bootsole, mister." She and Mary were coming out with civilized "ooh" smiles and agreeing that "Women are wimps." Whereupon Pete related how his wife would whack cockroaches with his, Pete's, hammer and then put it back without washing it and he'd find these layers of bug-crust on it when he went to pound a nail. Until one time he wiped it off on her shirt and she hasn't done that since. "You have a weird relationship," said Bitsy.
