RAT! 22012-06-28 at 08:18 pm Blog RSS
A blood-curdling scream came from down the hallway. It was Melinda. Luckily for me I learned long ago to stop having knee-jerk reactions to such things. If my knee had jerked it would have over turned the whole monitor/keyboard setup, dumped speakers in the floor and possibly overturned my pee jug. We wouldn’t want that. I figgered she would show shortly. She did.
Melinda: It’s IN the toilet!
Melinda: There’s a rat swimming around in the toilet!
*sigh* I start to feel like one of the good guy characters in Prison Break…not really a killer and don’t like it. But sometimes you have to do what you have to do.
He was swimming. I thought about some possible way to extract him…maybe grab the big plastic cup, dip him out. Use a towel to cover it till I got him outside. Nah. I gritted my imaginary teeth and hit ‘flush’. I tried to look away but had to see if it worked. He swam against a roaring waterfall several times his size and made it. Again swimming around in the bowl. Tired, huffing and puffing, eyes bugged out. Fuck!
I don’t have a problem with bugs that get in the house, especially ones that bite or sting. I can whack with the best of ‘em. I wouldn’t have the slightest problem with whacking any human who was a severe threat to me, either. It was just circumstance. He was an innocent in the wrong place at the wrong time. I would flush again. I would be more vicious. I would force him down with the toilet brush…I had a vision of him streaking up the brush and up my arm and diving into my mouth eating as he went. (shudder) He can’t possibly fight the water pressure AND my strength with the brush. I flushed and poked him several times with the brush. Didn’t see him any more.
Many hours later I still feel bad about it. It wasn’t right. Or fair. He had to die for my convenience and peace of mind…ironic. Shit happens. Life sucks.
