Every now and then, I get hungry when I’m sitting at my desk. That’s why I keep a very small stash of goodies. Unfortunately, the rats have found where I hide them.
The other day, I was asking my friend what time he wanted to go to lunch. Generally, we depart somewhere between 12:30 and 1 p.m.
It was 12:15, and he wanted to eat at 1 p.m. I was about to eat my foot when he reminded me that I had a couple of Rice Krispies Treats I had stashed in the desk earlier in the week.
When I opened the drawer, I found only half of a treat in my stash. I found the second wrapper (completely empty) just outside the box. It was obvious that I had a rat.
So, the rat apparently entered my desk drawer, saw a Rice Krispies Treat, ate one, then decided he was still hungry. After eating half of the second one, he left my desk drawer, but not without leaving lots of rat droppings all over the place.
I backed away from the desk, staring at the drawer with my head in my hands. I was disgusted by what I saw, and I immediately lost my appetite.
I grabbed the box, which held my stash, and threw it out.
The dirty rat got his due, though. Later the same day that I discovered the desecration of Rice Krispies Treats, we found the rat’s body in a trap. He was thrown into the lake to meet his destiny with the demon fish.
