2023.04.02 06:39 kaakabiriyani AWA argument essay review
The following appeared in a memo from the president of Bower Builders, a company that constructs new homes.
"A nationwide survey reveals that the two most-desired home features are a large family room and a large, well-appointed kitchen. A number of homes in our area built by our competitor Domus Construction have such features and have sold much faster and at significantly higher prices than the national average. To boost sales and profits, we should increase the size of the family rooms and kitchens in all the homes we build and should make state-of-the-art kitchens a standard feature. Moreover, our larger family rooms and kitchens can come at the expense of the dining room, since many of our recent buyers say they do not need a separate dining room for family meals."
Write a response in which you examine the stated and/or unstated assumptions of the argument. Be sure to explain how the argument depends on these assumptions and what the implications are for the argument if the assumptions prove unwarranted.
In the memo issued by the president of bower builder the president draws conclusion that the homes must have an expanded living rooms and state of art kitchens are likely to boost current sales. While the assertion might hold true, it is heavily relied upon three unwarranted assumptions that might reduce the credibility of the assertion.
Foremostly, the author assumes that the consumer demographics of Donus construction and Bower builders are similar in nature. It is highly likely that the nature of consumers may vary significantly. The consumers of Donus construction upon whose purchase patterns the assertion is being supported by might be wealthier than the consumers who are catered by the Bower builders. This assumption is not only pertinent to wealth but can also be extrapolated to their preferences. A consumer from Donus construction might have a preference when it comes to choices regarding living and kitchen spaces that could be vastly different from clientele served by Bower builders. More in-depth information and insight regarding the consumer demographics must be collected and analyzed in order to support the reasoning behind the assertion.
Next, the author assumes that by expanding the family rooms and kitchens, the houses can be sold at significantly high prices. This assumption might not always hold true since the author assumes that the cost of expansion is profitable at all times. Which could be untrue since the cost of expansion and additional work might involve purchase of new new material, additional workforce and increase in planning charges. This could lead to the budget being higher than the estimated budget that could give profit and when the cost of building is higher that cost price, it ultimately leads to a loss.
The argument also assumes that the A number of homes that were build by domus construction might be significant enough to provide support to the argument. This number can vary significantly since the term number is so ambiguous. It is possible that the number of buyers who were interested in homes that had larger living spaces and state of art kitchen were very few so much that their account for the argument can be negligible. In contrast to the lower end of the number spectrum, the term numbers could also mean that the the people who were interested could mean >50% of the customers of Donus construction, which is open to the interpretation that the number was higher.
If the author could perform a detailed analysis and support the above assumptions made by them in the argument, there is a possibility that the argument might hold true.

2023.04.02 06:38 letsgoyellow1 Whats working for me 1 month in!
Hello! So I’ve been doing a lot of reading on this subreddit (bad idea). Gotten a feel for the common successful methods & not so successful. I’ll give a short synopsis of my story and then let you know what I’ve been doing that really seems to be working for me rn.
Story time (F, 23): March 4th I noticed the bumps while shaving. Shaved them (idiot). Went to the dr. Dr thought either foliculitis or molluscum. Prescribed me antibiotics and said it they don’t work then it’s molluscum and go to the derm. Didn’t work. Went to the derm, yep, molluscum. She proposed no other option that cryo, so I did the cryo. She said to come back EVERY 4 WEEKS UNTIL THEYRE GONE. Estimated 3-5 sessions. I like sex too much, so that time frame was a no go for me. Cryo worked on some bumps but more were growing and I was not about to wait another 3 weeks with them to get them frozen.
Whats working for me right now: I take a hot shower and let them get all weird and puffy. Then I spray tf out of the area with hydrogen peroxide and let them get even weirder and puffier. Then, self extract. I know most people use a needle, I’m scared of needles. I got a blackhead remover and just use a lot of force. Yes, it kinda hurts. But I have a high pain tolerance and I want this shit gone. While I do it, I’m careful to keep it clean with more hydrogen peroxide as to lessen spreading. I soak the tool with isopropyl in between extracting to make sure I don’t spread. I also let it air dry on before putting underwear on. I did this on Monday of this week (03/27, 6 days ago). Next two days I sprayed with hydrogen peroxide and on Wednesday I noticed some were still getting white (pus), so I self extracted those again to make sure I really got the core. Next day, my Mollenol came in. I got the patches and the sensitive oil. I put the oil on every scab/ulcer thing where I’d extracted a bump and a patch on any that I haven’t yet. I did that all day Thursday, Friday, and so far today. No joke, they are healing so well already. The ones I’d extracted and put oil on are flat and fading away. The area looks much better, omg. As for the ones I hadn’t yet extracted, tonight I took them out (same way as before) and covered them with the patches. I’ll update on how those turn out, but I’m hopeful. ALSO, I’ve been putting the oil on a few super small bumps that just appeared and they’re already getting smaller and going down. I think this oil actually works, for me at least. A couple other minor things I’m doing, plucking a lot of the hair in the area so I can see the situation better, putting a patch on anything that could possibly be a molluscum, and I take an array of supplements already (collagen- which actually might help for skin cell regrowth??, zinc, vitamin d, iron, magnesium, potassium, l-theanine, im crazy) which may help. Lastly, I have hsv1 (cold sores) and in the USA you can get a prescription for acyclovir if you have that (like 85% of the world does, you probably do) via many online websites that prescribe meds. I used nurx, it was $45. I haven’t started taking them yet but I’m going to on Monday. There’s some research and anecdotal stories about people using it for molluscum and saying it stopped new ones from growing!!
I have truly thrown the kitchen sink at this, ya’ll. I do not want to be stuck with it for 5+ months, and feel confident that I won’t be. My goal is to have it totally cleared by the end of April. By the way things are looking, I think that’s doable :).
Side note, I also kinda tried compound w wart gel. But I did not give it a fair shot, I literally only applied it for like two days. Didn’t seem to be doing a damn thing (I’m impatient). However, I did totally kill and flatten ONE of the bumps. So who knows.
Another side note, all of my bumps are small, and I have/had maybe 30-40. They’re all on my genital area & a couple on my butt. Small like ranging from the tip of a pen to half a grain of rice small. Only one is about the size of a normal largeish pimple. I self extracted that one tonight, so I’ll keep ya’ll updated!
Once this is over I think I’m going to reward myself with some laser hair removal so I never have to question if something is foliculitis or due to shaving ever again. 🥲

2023.04.02 06:35 throwmykidney My roommates are stressing me the f*ck out
I( 23 M) have 4 roommates all males, and 3 of them are in their 30's while one is around my age. We share a flat with a kitchen and 2 toilets, one of which is in my bedroom ( i have an en-suite).
When i spoke with one of them over the phone before renting a room, he didn't mention anything about sharing food or cooking meals for each other. He surprised me about this when i moved in. They essentially do their shopping together (all 4 of them) and split the cost and also take turns cooking meals. Which is fair enough, so i went along with it for a few weeks. But it was really expensive for me to carry on doing this, because i have my own meal plan i like to follow so it was getting expensive for me to essentially do my own shopping and then also the shared shopping.
So i politely told them im going to start doing my own shopping and also not be part of the whole "taking turns cooking" thing. Every month, i only have around 200 dollars left over, after bills, rent, groceries, petrol, etc, which isn't a lot when im trying to save up. So I've been trying to save money wherever i can.
But whenever i did my own shopping and put the stuff in the refrigerator or the freezer, i started to notice that there would be less off it even if i hadn't touched it, which clearly meant they were using my stuff. But i just chalked it up to be due to the fact that they may not have known it was my groceries, so i started to wrap plastic foil around my stuff.
But....they would remove the plastic wrap anyway and start using my things. Where it gets to the point, i have to buy certain groceries 2 or 3 times a week because they use my things.
I would also bring food from home, if i visited my parent's, my mom would make me some food which would last me a month and help me cut monthly costs, but they eat that aswell and almost feel entitled to eating it....so much so that they told me to tell them if im bringing food back so they dont have to cook.
One of them also keeps using my toilet ( we dont have locks on our bedrooms) WHILE IM TRYING TO SLEEP. He will come into my room while im asleep at like 5 am and use the toilet, the loud ass flush wakes me up and im grouchy as hell at work, the next day because i cant go back to sleep.
The second time he did this, i waited for him to get out of the toilet and just followed him out of my room, slamming my door behind him. Then, the next day, i sent a paragraph of me ranting about how they should stop eating my food and coming into my room without knocking( which is another issue), in the flat group chat.
The 2 out of the 3 (the one's in their 30's) all responded with a thumbs up, but the one that keeps using my toilet, started going on about how im not friendly and all i care about is money?
But even after all of this, literally just yesterday, they finished my entire bottle of milk(which had plastic wrap) to make some dumb dessert.
The 3 roommates, which are the main issue, are from India, where i assume it's normal to be doing this with people you live with since they've stated that multiple times before. And anything outside that norm they consider you to be an unfriendly or an unkind person. But im honestly just stuck on as to what i should do. How im supposed to make them understand when I've already tried, because this is having a substantial impact on how much im spending in a month, which im trying to keep as low as possible. Any advice?

2023.04.02 06:32 justcurious12345 Kitchen tricks
I love cooking and baking but MS has made it so my balance and endurance for standing, bending, etc in the kitchen is not great. Assuming it's a relatively common issue, I thought I'd share a few tricks I've found helpful. First, a kitchen chair. For me this is a chair from a 2nd hand store that lives in the kitchen unless we have guests at the table. I sit whenever I can- particularly helpful with loading/unloading the dishwasher, but also for extended prep work or taking breaks while things cook. Sitting down for the 5 minutes that the coffee takes to brew can make all the difference as far as getting breakfast ready. (As a side note, it's also a handy way to keep my toddler out from underfoot. She likes sitting in "Mommy's chair" and having a snack while I put together our meals or clean up the counters.)
The other trick that makes a world of difference for me is having a trash bag right at hand (in my chair if no one is using it, or on the floor in an out of the way spot.) The trash can isn't more than 10ft away, but walking over for every bit of trash wears me out. Sometimes I make a trash pile as I go, bits of papers, wrappers, etc. But it's still hard for me to use both hands to carry things and walk, so the bag close by helps a lot. I also find it super helpful if I'm cleaning off other people's messes from the counters (toddler has an older sister, lol). Sometimes the need to pick up the kitchen is what keeps me from cooking, because if I spend all my energy picking up then I have none left for the fun part. Making the trash pick up easier leaves me more energy to actually cook.
No knead breads are awesome ways to make yummy food without tons of active work, just time. I also often buy the pre-cut up veggies. Not frugal but cheaper than ordering food or going out.
What are your energy conserving tips for the kitchen?

2023.04.02 06:27 dahyunn_e AITA for going to the store with my three older siblings
A couple weeks ago I (F13) my mom, and siblings made a gaming room/chill room for my older brother (M20), older sister (F19), and my second oldest sister (F17). It took only a couple days to get the room cleaned and decorated, the last thing they needed to do was get posters for the room to add a final touch to it. So are mom said "where going to Walmart and Five-below since it would be quicker and cheaper" she said "where" as in the three oldest so while they were in their rooms getting ready I offered to make dinner for my younger siblings. Then my dad, my mom, and my older brother frank came in the kitchen while I made dinner and before I say this next part I just wanna say I've always had a resting bitch face/ resting sad face so I could look very sad but there's absolutely nothing wrong with me! But my dad noticed my face and asked me if I wanted to go, I immediately said no because I don't want to take away from my three older siblings bonding time but my older brother says " we can all go so we can have some time out of the house". He said "all" as in me, mom, and the three oldest. My mom agreed and was telling us to get ready so I go to my sisters room to let them know I was going but when I told them they looked at each other then with a disappointed face then got back to changing. I honestly am used to them doing that to me but not directly were I can see it, I didn't even want to go anymore but I just pulled it together and went. Even at the store my sisters were ignoring me and anytime I tried to interact with them they ignored me. We just got back from the store and I still feel kinda out of place especially in the same room with them, I explained it to my mom and she said they were happy I went but I could tell if someone doesn't want me to go with them and for my sisters if was blatantly obvious. AITA.

2023.04.02 06:11 dbthrowawayrowaway "DeSantis is way better than Newsom"
The immortal words of my DH (d for dumbass/dolt/dipshit right now) during a discussion tonight about possibly taking our five-year-old to Disneyland next year. He brought up Disneyworld possibly being cheaper and I said there was no way I was giving any money into Florida. Rest of the talk went like this:
Him: "I don't know see why you'd be any happier giving money into California."
Me: "I'm not thrilled with crossing the border at all [we're Canadian], but I'm absolutely not going to Florida."
Him: "I don't get why."
Me: "Because I'm a woman? You've got some reading to do."
Him: "DeSantis is way better than Newsom. What are you mad at him for? [snidely] For bringing abortion laws in line with Sweden?"
Me: "...You know what, I'm not discussing this with you right before bed. It always turns into an argument."
Him: "I don't know why you can't cope with talking about this."
Me: "Okeydokey, goodbye."
And scene. So ... yeah. Feeling super excited about next year's vacation. Also feeling flummoxed about how I ended up married to a man who says such stupidly vile and vilely stupid nonsense. He's not even right about the state of Swedish abortion access. And conveniently he's ignoring the Florida's legislature's determination to strangle what little access there is, while Sweden and Europe more broadly are moving toward expansion. He just sounds so, so stupid and cruel and he doesn't even realize it and it's depressing.
(No, he was not always like this. I genuinely think the concussions from the football-playing days of his youth are catching up to him. I'm not even being snide, that's what I truly think.)

2023.04.02 06:08 _EnFlaMEd Dark movie script based on "Steamed Hams" was darker than I anticipated.
Q: write me the script to a feature length movie based on The Simpsons skit "Steamed Hams". The film should have dark overtones and only be suitable for a mature audience.
Opening shot of Springfield, with the familiar music playing in the background. The camera pans down to a dilapidated house on the outskirts of the city. The house is rundown and eerie, and there is an eerie feeling to the air.
Cut to a shot of a man in his mid-fifties, Principal Skinner, who is sitting in his kitchen, drinking a cup of coffee. He hears a knock on the door and goes to answer it. Standing outside is his boss, Superintendent Chalmers, a man in his early sixties with a stern look on his face.
Chalmers has come to visit Skinner because he has received a complaint from a concerned citizen about the quality of the school lunches. Skinner is taken aback and tries to assure Chalmers that the food is of high quality, but Chalmers is not convinced.
Chalmers decides to pay a surprise visit to the school to see for himself. Skinner is nervous and decides to make lunch himself, to ensure that everything is perfect. He settles on hamburgers, which he is confident will impress Chalmers.
However, when he goes to cook them, he accidentally burns them. He panics and decides to serve them anyway, covering up the burnt taste with ketchup and mustard. When Chalmers arrives, Skinner serves him the burgers, claiming that they are "steamed hams."
Chalmers takes a bite and is disgusted by the burnt taste. Skinner tries to cover it up by distracting him with conversation, but Chalmers is not fooled. He demands that Skinner tell him the truth about the burgers.
Skinner finally admits that he burned them, but Chalmers is furious. He decides to shut down the school cafeteria and fire Skinner.
Feeling humiliated and defeated, Skinner retreats back to his home. He becomes increasingly paranoid and delusional, convinced that Chalmers is out to get him. He starts hearing voices and seeing strange visions.
In one particularly disturbing scene, Skinner hallucinates that he is eating a hamburger, but when he takes a bite, it turns into a human finger. He screams in terror and runs out of the house.
As the film progresses, Skinner's mental state deteriorates further. He becomes increasingly violent and erratic, lashing out at anyone who tries to get close to him.
The climax of the film takes place at a school board meeting, where Skinner breaks in with a gun and begins shooting indiscriminately. Chalmers is killed in the crossfire, along with several other board members.
Skinner is eventually apprehended and taken to a mental institution, where he spends the rest of his days in isolation.
The film ends with a shot of the dilapidated house, now abandoned and overgrown with weeds. The camera pans out to reveal the entire city of Springfield, with the familiar music playing once again, but now with a darker, more ominous tone.
Fade to black.

2023.04.02 05:55 9Gmagoo 26 [M4F] California/Anywhere - Calling all night owls and night shift workers
Hi there! I'm a 26 year old guy from California. I've been feeling lately like my life has become pretty mundane. I think I may have focused on life a bit too much and forgot to enjoy it too. It's been a long time since there has been someone in my life that has made me feel excited about talking to them. I'm not even looking for anything in particular. Maybe we hit it off as great friends. Maybe we hit it off as more down the road. Who knows? I'm excited to find out.
Some of my hobbies are vegetable gardening and relaxing video games. I am currently working my way through every episode of Criminal Minds. Vikings is my favorite TV show. I am introverted at first but I open up quickly. I absolutely love taking late night drives while listening to my favorite genre of music for how I'm feeling. It's even better when it's a warm night and you can have your window down. I also love long late night talks where you talk about everything you can think of. Voice calls work too. If you wish to see a picture of me, all you have to do is ask.
Hope to hear from you soon 🙂

Local place, been there before, LOVE their outstanding GF pizza. My table mates ordered and I requested my favorite pizza with GF white sauce and lots of veggies and mushrooms. Server returns, out of GF crust. I'm so tired of only being able to eat salads so just watched them eat. Honestly, at this point it's not so bad having to do that because I'm used to limited options. I drank a couple of seltzers and went home to leftover soup.

2023.04.02 05:52 Confident_North-0888 Saw a ghost at work at night.
At 19 years old I worked at a local pizza parlor called Ciro's. I was the one up front at the register and serving drinks like beer or wine. After closing, 2 people were in the back cleaning and closing up and I was up front cleaning the lobby. I was sweeping the floors and I simply turn toward the register, where an open area was behind a counter that led to the kitchen of the resturant. I saw a translucent person standing there, in jean shorts and a red Ciro's shirt, standard uniform. He looked like a light skinned black young man or even teenager with a bit of an afro. I thought to myself, weird what the heck, looked away toward the window, looked back and it was gone.
I did not feel any malevolence but rather a peaceful, confused, and sad feeling. He looked surprised to see me, we did lock eyes. I asked before we left if anyone had ever died while working there and they seemed a bit surprised that I would ask and they said, yes. A young man named Andre.
About 10 years later, I was chatting with and hanging out with one of my best friends best friend. She started to talk about ghost stories and I offered mine. She paled when I finished and said I knew him we were close in high school. He comes to the dreams of one of his former close friends. She knew he worked at Ciro's at the time of his death. Then it hit me and I realized I knew him in high school too, through mutual friends.
His death was mysterious but it was ruled an accident. He played the choking game and died at a park tied to a tree and a jogger found him in the morning. Still don't know how to feel about it, never saw him again.

2023.04.02 05:51 erich_82 I need a good enough cordless vacuum - recommendations please?
We own a Shark Apex corded vacuum but lately we’ve been looking to buy a cordless vacuum for quick and easy daily vacuuming of our common areas and kitchen which has luxury vinyl flooring. We’ve done a lot of research and had our eyes on the Shark Stratos, LG cord zero, Samsung, and of course Dyson. When we go into the stores to put our hands on the different models almost every sales associate steers us to the Dyson V15 and then they trash talk all the other models. It happened at two Best Buy’s and a Target that I went into.
I guess I’m just wondering if there’s a “good enough” vacuum that will fit the bill or is the $750 Dyson really worth looking at?
We are open to all suggestions.

2023.04.02 05:50 whattobewhenIgrowup I don’t know what to do anymore
I (37M) and my wife (39F) have been married for almost 10 years, together for almost 13 and have 4 kids together(from toddler to teenager). We both had difficult childhoods, hers due to divorce and probably the most childish behaviour I’ve ever seen from anyone (both her parents are clearly narcissistic but it comes out way differently for both) and myself due to early childhood trauma and S.A (which I’ve never told my wife about). My wife was diagnosed with ADHD about a year ago and I’ve been going through some medical issues, which although aren’t life threatening, my life has kinda been turned upside down.
We are different people. I like things to be tidy, the kids to have a schedule, proper bed time, complete chores etc. she does not like those things. If I try and get the kids to bed on the agreed upon time she gets mad at me because she doesn’t see value to it (I think, if I ask why she gets annoyed with me), if I try to get them to do simple things around the house like picking up their laundry, doing the dishes, putting away toys or arts and crafts she tells them they do t have to because she’ll do it. It never happens, I always end up having to go back and do whatever it was I asked of them. She says it’s because of her ADHD/because of not learning how to live a normal family life due to her up-bringing. She takes her medication, her dose needed to be increased (Doc told her as much, she said she knew best) sometime ago but she decided it didn’t so I have my doubts it’s doing much, also she refuses to see a councillor to deal with her family issues or help her manage her ADHD. She also has crazy mood swings, although they had gotten slightly better since taking her medication. They still happen but aren’t as extreme. Over the years I’ve done everything I can to try and support her, if it was dealing with her crazy family, her holistic beliefs, when she got into arguments with someone or even finances when we started dating. Writing it out I must of been a fool. I did try to break it off early in our relationship but she gave me a sob story and I’m far too soft hearted. Having said all of this I do really love her, I feel like a huge pile of garbage writing this but the fact is a) this is a burner account and b) I’d never say any of this out loud because I don’t want anyone to think I was disrespectful to her.
Our problems have always been there (small stuff as mentioned previously) but I guess I just feel like a doormat and unloved. As l live already said I have some health problems that make it difficult for me to get around or due much of anything at times. I’m still doing my best to help around the house. Washing dishes cleaning up the “invisible messes” that her and the kids leave. I don’t expect them to leave the house perfect but I didn’t think it too much to ask to scrap if your plate, rinse it off and put it in the sink, but apparently it is. Nobody else will do the dishes, they can literally sit for days if I don’t do them so all the crap they leave to harden has to be scrubbed by me. I’ve decided Im not going to waste time trying so I let them soak and my wife gives me crap for not knowing how to wash them properly! I clean as I cook (I love to cook and make big meals that everyone loves) she leaves the kitchen in a huge mess and gives me crap if I ask her to clean it when she’s done, her excuse is that she’s to busy to clean as she goes or directly after. If she takes out coats, boats, glove etc she’ll leave them in the middle of the floor, and again if I don’t pick them up they’ll stay for days like that. She constantly loses her bank card and takes mine without telling me or returning it and I’m always left to look like a fool at the cash register because I have no way to pay! She’s what a lot of people would consider to be beautiful, she modelled in magazines, she never paid for a drink at bars and once she cause a guy to rear end a car cause he was staring at her. So she never had to consider how her actions effected others. As we’ve gotten older that’s changed for everyone but me.
I’m at a breaking point and what has brought me here is more of the same I guess. Last night my oldest daughter let it slip that my wife invited 12 extra people over for Easter dinner next week and I was expected to make it! They both thought it was pretty funny but I was p*ssed! She did this before without telling me until the day before and I ended up cooking for over 20 people!! I told her I wouldn’t do it again, I already bought the turkey big enough for our family alone, physically I can’t take it and I’ve been looking forward to a nice family meal. She told me she would call it off and so I left it. Today one of the people who she had invited stopped off to pick something up and told me how he couldn’t wait for dinner on Easter. I was taken aback and all I could say was “no”. When he left I asked my wife why he still thought it was going on and she told me she hadn’t cancelled it and would tell she got a chance, she was scrolling FB on the couch at the time. She took our dog for a walk and when she got back she asked why I was annoyed (as I was washing the dishes from the last 3 days) so I told her I didn’t appreciate being made to look like an a-hole in front of our friend and then she lost it at me! She said I shouldn’t be so difficult and that it wasn’t a big deal. I’m a pretty even keel person so I said if she wants them over she could cook and clean cause I wasn’t doing it again, she got mad again and said she’ll make it a potluck and didn’t really care if I wanted to be around these people or not. That was about 7 hrs ago and I haven’t been able to stomach being around her.
I’m just worn out. We have no physical contact really, and I don’t just mean sex I mean if I try and hug her she rushes away or pushes past me because she’s so busy, all the time, night or day. We aren’t doing the best money wise and when I try to tell her we can’t waste money on random nights as a family at a hotel she says I don’t know what I’m talking about and that’s not how you save money. S the worst part is she tell’s the kids we’re going to do all this stuff and then I’m the bad guy that tells them no.
A few months ago I got some scary news regarding my health and tried to tell her we need to make some changes around the house and that her and the kids would have to up their game a bit. She went silent and didn’t want to spend any time with me that night so I sat alone in the dark terrified about what might happen. The next morning she explained it was because she thought it sounded like I was giving up.
She’s really kind to everyone else and I just can’t figure why not me. I don’t know what advice I’m looking for or why I even wrote this. Thanks for reading
TL;DR- My wife is nice to everyone else but doesn’t seem to notice or care how her actions affect me and I don’t understand why.

2023.04.02 05:49 catschr0dinger Writing Prompt - A cat brings home a glowing rat.
I hum along to my favourite song as I scrub the dishes, the water sloshing around. Foamy bubbles spill out over the side of the sink, floating down to the floor and making the floor even more slippery than it already was. Soapy water splashes onto my sleeve and I curse, batting at it with my other hand to get rid of the bubbles that have culminated onto my sleeve but only serving to make my jumper even wetter. I give up and turn back to the sink, wondering how long it would be until my replacement dishwasher would arrive. I hadn’t been handling hand-washing dishes very well. A small ‘mrow’ sounds behind me. I twist around, my heart beating a million miles a minute.
“Geeze bud, you scared me!” I exhale, holding a hand to my chest as if to show my cat how much he terrified me.
I flick some bubbles at him and they drift down and cover his head. He rolls his eyes up to look at the pile of bubbles covering his head, making for an extremely funny picture and I giggle.
“You silly thing…” I reach down and scratch behind his ears, and he leans into my hand purring.
He drops something as he does so, and for a moment I swear it was some foam. But then I realise that bubbles can’t drop that fast, they would float down slower than that. The truth dawns slowly on me and my face drops in horror.
“Oh no. You haven’t, have you?” Tom’s innocent glance towards me suggests that he has, in fact, brought home a dead rat again. It looks weird though, the rat is almost pure white except for some puncture holes around its next. There wasn’t even any blood on the rat or Tom’s fangs.
I grab a tea towel and quickly check to confirm that it’s one I wouldn’t mind throwing out. I bend to pick up the rat, but recoil in shock. This rat is glowing
. It looks radioactive, for crying out loud. I inhale quickly and steel my nerves. I duck down and gather the rat up in the tea towel and speed walk to the backdoor, my shoes squeaking from the water I’d previously spilt. Tom meows at me and looks confused as to why I would be throwing out such a precious possession.
“Look,” I call back to him. “I appreciate the thought, but this has to go.”
He meows grumpily again. I open the backdoor and don’t even bother walking to the bin to dispose of the glowing rat, I just chuck it from the doorstep into the opened bin. Luckily, my aim is true and the rat lands in the bin. I shiver as I realise I didn’t even consider what would happen if I missed that shot. I turn and head back inside, silently thanking myself for being forgetful and leaving the bin ajar.
I walk back inside and pass by Tom, who was curled up in a corner without a care in the world. I shake my head fondly and go to get a wet towel from the bathroom to clean him up with. Running the rag under a steady stream of water, I sigh and wonder if I’ll ever get around to finishing those dishes.
Returning to the kitchen, I stopped stock still in my tracks. Tom is still nestled comfortably in the corner, purring softly and glowing like a lightbulb.
