I walk into the boyfriend’s house today to a most unfriendly funk! It’s not bachelor guy apartment smell (because I’ve converted it with my scented candles and incense) it’s something decaying. A few days ago we saw some drops of blood on the floor. And a few days before that we saw a rat scurry off into the darkness of the ceiling rafters. So I’m thinking the rat has bled on the floor and crawled off somewhere to die.
I made the boyfriend crawl up and check the ceiling rafters, go into the back of the closets, under the stairs and any place a small thing could go off and die to no avail. I put the dog on sniffer duty to find the origin of the stank, but no luck. I’m about to unleash the snakes to do their thing, but I’m afraid I might not be able to extract them from the stinky point of origin and I think it’s irresponsible to unleash boas on West Hollywood.
My big fear is that there is some Silence of the Lambs scene going on in the garage of which he shares a wall (and where the majority of the stink is coming from). Pee-whew! What to do?
