In which I freak the hell out!

These have got to be the biggest rat turds I've ever seen! I stepped back with a good mixture of both fear and disgust at the sight of what appeared to be dozens of turds behind my bed when I pulled it out from the wall to clean behind it. As I stepped back, I was mentally preparing an escape route in case the maker of these turds should come scampering out. Simultaneously, I was subconciously locating the 12 gauge shotgun and ammunition just in case I had to dispatch what I expected would have been a Shetland-pony-sized rat that dropped these things.

I quickly abandoned the thought of grabbing my shotgun and decided instead to get a paper towel to scoop up the turds with. When I carefully knelt down to get them, keeping an eye out for the monster that left them, I realized that they weren't turds at all. Nope - raisins. Apparently one of the kids must have spilled a box behind my bed. I don't know how.

It's embarrassing to admit that my house is currently dirty enough that I would think for even a second that I could possibly have a rat living and crapping under my bed. I think I'm going to clean more often. In fact, that's what I should be doing right now. I'd better get back to it!
