Ok, so there was this really stinky smell in the garage the past couple of days. Miss E and I noticed it and in the wet weather we've been experiencing lately (the sun is out today, hoorah!), it was rather malodorous.
So I texted Weatherdude (text and iChat being our favorite means of communication): Did you leave a stinky dead rat in our garage?
Weatherdude assured me he did not. Though this was after he got home, since he missed seeing my text to him on the train. These things happen.
"So what's that stinky smell in the garage then and why does it look like the same plastic bag that had the rat in it is in one of tall plastic trash holders?"
"Gee, I thought I put that rat in the barrels. I guess I didn't."
"You are so doing the next trash run."
The garage has now returned to its normal level of odoriferous. ness.
Meanwhile, now that the sun has come out? The stink bugs are also appearing on the side of the house. The bath of death stands ready for them. I do not intend to let them get thousands of little bodies inside the house this year.
Fall farm battles continue.
