It's been a while since I really felt the need to complain about something. Well, the time has finally come again.
Since yesterday evening, there has been an awful stench in my bedroom. My wife and I searched all around the room and found nothing that could plausibly be the source of the odor. My wife is convinced there is a dead mouse somewhere (we have had problems with mice off and on over the last six years). I checked to make sure there were no dead mice between the basement ceiling squares and the floor with a negative result.
I put down scented powder and vacuumed the bedroom carpet. For a short time it seemed to make a difference, but the smell returned. I have to admit I am at a loss here. Maybe a dead mouse will turn up in one of my wife's shoes or something. You can be sure I will be sleeping with the window cracked wide open and the fan on oscillate mode tonight!
