You know you’ve got a problem when the fruit flies invade your bedroom, an entire floor away from the kitchen. Roommate Nelson, ever the hero, reports:

More fruit flies in the kitchen this morning… I decided there was still a source. Opened the pantry and there were a bunch more. I found what was once a sack of potatoes, reduced to a dripping pile of dog diarrhea and covered in fruit flies. Luckily the bag had lots of holes in it to allow the elixir to seep all over the back left quadrant of the bottom shelf. I almost wretched when the full sensory explosion hit me.

That probably explains that noxious smell I haven’t been able to pinpoint for the past month…
