I should have known better than try to tidy up my apartment.
I appear somehow to have dropped a can of tuna behind the furnace.
How in the world did this happen, you might ask? Well such are the wonders of living in a basement apartment. No one actually DESIGNED the space, it just kind of IS.
So one wall of my pantry shares a wall with the furnace. Up at the top of that wall on the top right hand shelf there is a hole.
Why is there a hole? I have no idea. But there is.
So as I went to put “Jackie’s little toolbox” up on that top shelf this evening I heard a clatter.
I did some investigating and found a can of tuna had dropped through the hole, in-behind the furnace.
I tried to rescue the poor can of tuna with a broom and accidentally pushed it further behind the furnace.
I tried again… AND THEN IT BURNT ME.
Clearly the furnace is very hungry and/or has bonded with the can of tuna.
Screw them both. They deserve one another. I, on the other hand am maimed for life.
And down a can of fish.
