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...

  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!
