Just a note- If the cockroach flies, it's actually a bug called a Palmetto bug. They are often mistaken for cockroaches, but most are a lot bigger than cockroaches and have more developed wings, so they can fly.
I hope you survive! If you can, grab a spray of some sort, like a cleaner, air freshener, or just some alcohol in a sprayer, and keep it with you. It may not kill it (MAY not), but if it doesn't it will at least slow it down so it won't fly on you.
I live in the south, so I see these at least once a month -_-* Good luck!
Oh, poor you! I can hardly stand them myself. And that's just what we call them down here... I don't know if that's the official name for it or if you do have them there... Hmm.
Good luck anyhow!
Maybe the thing crawling on your feet was the OTHER cockroach you DIDN'T see.
Or maybe I'm just kidding around and have no idea what I'm talking about.
