this morning found me cleaning moth larvae from my kitchen ceiling.

sometimes i wish i could accurately describe just how un-glamorous new-york-city-living is.

oh wait. i just did, right?

i'm warning you. the story I'm about to tell you is upsetting.

okay, so one day I was in the bathroom in my parent's house when I was in high school. Suddenly I noticed little white things dropping from the ceiling. I couldn't figure out what they were but I took a second look and they were moving all over the floor -- the floor was nearly covered in maggots that were dropping from a vent in the ceiling. As it had turned out, a squirrel crawled into our roof and had died right above that vent. It was like something out of a horror movie, I swear to you...I have been traumatized ever since and I now get paranoid around ceiling vents.

yuck - I get goosebumps just thinking about it!

That is super icky.

I commend you for doing it, because I think I'd probably just wish it away with my mind powers.

ewwww maggot stories win.
I was going to say, better moth larvae from the ceiling than mouse poop from the silverware drawer.
But maybe not!

I need that reality check. I get the itch to live in NYC a few times a year. It seems so glamourous but I know it's not. Wishing you a bug free apt. from here on out!
