oh it's been a long, long time.
I am using my old laptop that i spilled tea on some years ago. it works pretty well.
Today I was remembered this story:
When i was about ten, I had a hamster. My brother also had a hamster but at this point i don't remember if his was still alive or not.
Anyway, my hamster somehow escaped, and i couldn't find her. I gave up hope after a few weeks. After all I was in a new neighborhood in our family's first house. She probably got out of the house and was a long way gone.
Two years later:
My father and I were walking home one day through the alley to our house. My dad notices something strange by the back gate. We look and I recognize my hamster, dead, on it's back, surrounded by mounds of cage litter.
I will never know what happened to her. Or why this was done to me. That hamster was kept somewhere by somebody for two years. The hamster seemed to have died of old age, which made sense because she would have been five or six at that point. Someone had taken care of her and then when she died, decided to dump her body behind my house where i would find her. My dad joked that she had been 'whacked' and dumped mafia style since it seemed like someone had just walked over with her cage and dumped the contents.
WHAT!? this is probably the most ridiculous mystery of my life. At the age of ten in a new neighborhood, i should have had no enemies. I can't possibly think of one of my neighbors being sadistic enough to do that to me. But then again, I have secretly suspected every one of them of this. Was it the couple down the street who seemed to hate me and my brother? The crazy old couple across the street who's son commited suicide the year she disappeared? The seven year old twins across the street with emotional issues? My deaf next door neighbor?
But that was so long ago. Happy new year! Lemme hear if anyone is still on here. Or i guess i'll see you on twitter.
