All evening, snapping and popping noises come from behind the plastic curtain that separates the construction from the rest of the house. They even caused Rose to bark in the middle of the night as if someone were at the door.
The man of the house was sent to investigate on several occasions, particularly because this blog's Hollywood Correspondent recently reported the discovery of a rat in the closet of her nice house in a nice neighborhood. He insists that we do not have rats, numbats, porcupines or any other creatures that might account for the noises.
I can only conclude that the kitchen is haunted. Do you think they might turn out to be useful spirits who could once in a while pull their weight by making me a cup of tea, at least?
