    Oh joy

    My mom and sister told me this morning they smelled the "dead animal/rotting flesh" smell in the study room this morning. I walked by and didnt smell anything and still didn't once I got home from school. I opened up the small closet door that's next to the study and hot damn it smelled like a bbq gone horrible wrong. Well anyways, I guess perhaps there could be something dead between the wall, and i know that is not good at all. We called the critter dudes today but they didnt pick up. So what now? Will they come and rip the wall down and find the darn thing or something? Who else had an experience like this?

    Heh - that's never fun.
    Life is about hanging onto what you think is important and finding out what really is important.

    So many sayings, so little sig space.

    Leave it for a while, the maggots will make quick work of it and then it'll be all better. Or better yet, drill a small hole somewhere and introduce a couple of flies...

    I'd rip the wall apart. Drywall is no big deal, especially if your willing to paint the room.

    I love the way that your mind works! Have you ever taken an aptitude test? If so, did it list your best choice of occupation as benevolent evil genius? I mean this as a compliment, so accept my apologies in advance if it does not come off as one.

    I believe there are some enzymes you might be able to throw back there. In my old apt there was something that died in the wall - I burned incense for about 6 months and then you couldn't smell a thing. Didn't keep anymore clothes in that closet though...

    Why thank you! All the personality and aptitude tests have scored me very strongly, yet strangely even, on both left- and right-brain functions. I got very good marks for creativity and resourcefulness. Now I just gotta find an evil benevolent goal to pursue... maybe dictator....
