Not the rats of NIHM
April 20, 2011
I finally got to catch up with Renee after over a week apart. And after a joyous chatting session where we discussed all sorts of randomness she decided I needed to hear the most horrific true story.
Last week while she was sitting on the retaining wall in front of her apartment a rat started to climb up her back.
Allow me to type that again. A RAT started to climb up her back. Thankfully, despite being incapacitated by the plague-ish flu making the rounds, she was able to stand up and dislodge said rat before it entwined itself in her hair. But still.
Oh my GOD this is not a story I want to hear when I live two buildings from Renee. I don’t need to deal with rats on top of the raccoons and opossums.
When I think of rats I want to think of Ratatouille and that lovely Don Bluth film from the classic novel about the rats of NIHM.
Not reality. Thanks so much.
