Strange noises

Location: the corner of the room, inside the plastic cable container
Mood: apprehensive

I am sitting here and I hear an occasional noise in the corner of the room. Near the plastic tub that has cables and other random shit in it. And I notice things like bubble wrap, and a pile of bumper stickers, and it is most likely that something shifted. Yeah. That's the only thing that makes sense.

Only I am hearing noise that is not just gravitational shifting. And it is also not provoked. There is nothing forcing it. Things don't just move, every few minutes, unless there is a reason for them to move. Or unless they're exceedingly unstable. And they are not. 

I go closer. And there is another sound. It's movement. Something is moving. And I am pretty sure this something is alive. And I am also pretty sure this something is larger than, say, an ant. Could be a mouse. Could be a very large spider. Either way, I don't want it moving freely. Maybe it's not in the container. Maybe it's in the wall! I don't like this one bit.

So I put on clothes and grab the cover to the container so I can make sure that if something is in the container, it remains there. Forever. Or until further notice.

And I have the thing contained. Assuming, of course, that it is in the container. If it is elsewhere, then who knows.

Add it to the list...

    It could be a chameleon...

  2. ...so did it stop making noises? why not take the container outside and then open it up out there?

    Perhaps it's a rat!
