Adam's Beanstalk

A daily adventure-bag of insights and old bones from an unknown poet in Manitoba's south. Caveat: Not everything is to be taken literally. Things are often shaded with poetic crayons; be the owl. Also, not all these bones are collected from different fields. Find themes that run througout each post and the journal as a whole; the most insignificant event may be part of an ear.

Mystery in the Apartment!

Somebody has painted our apartment while we were out for work.

Everything is white.

This is not a joke.

I will let our conversation say all.

Travis says: Adam, you realise this means someone entered our apartmnet (locked) and started painting it while we were at work?

Adam says: inside our apartment?! [Pause] Maybe it was a paint monkey! [Pause] Or... yuppies!

Travis says: The paint monkey appears to drink tim hortons double doubles

Adam says: was anything missing?

Travis says: doesn't seem to be. Aside from the paint job the only things noticeably different are:
1)the tim hortons cup left on the mantle
2)the toilet lid was up
3)there's some sort of paint in the sink
4?)and the battery on the cordless is low, though that could be because it sucks

Adam says: maybe it was dorchester doing an anti-color campaign

Travis says: I'm thinking the caretakers had to be involved somehow because the door was locked when I got home. I'm going to try calling them again

Adam says: this is too wierd

Travis says: still no answer. Yes, it is rather strange. [Pause] Another possibility, though slim, is that this is the work of Jenna and Zoe.
Zoe still had a set of keys in her possession when she left, and though I doubt they'd do something like this, perhaps the schemed it

Adam says:
but no! it couldn't be! [Pause]
they would not have left the toilet up!
what skills of induction i possess!

Travis says:
the toilet lid, not the toilet seat

Adam says:

Travis says:
do you know if Jenna like Timmy Ho's Double double?

Adam says:
good question. i'm not sure, but it is our chief clue. [Pause]
or is it... a RED HERRING!?

Adam says:
we must tread carefully.

A few corrections and an update. The apartment is not all white. The painters started painting the trim, which was a read/brown completely white. However, I estimate at about 10-30 minutes in they realised their mistake and stopped, leaving only small sections painted white. Furthermore, it is obvious that this painting was done by one of their newer painters. It looks absolutely terrible.

The painter in charge arrived after I spoke with Adam and explained the situation. Now, I must describe this painter. He was a cross between a hippy and a middle-aged bum. Long, unkempt hair, dirty, ragged paint stained shirt and jeans, very slim and short. Truly the apex of the appearance of an incompetent painter, though he spoke well. Apparently a clerical error had ocurred and their new rookie painter entered into and started painting B23 instead of B22, across the hall. So, tomorrow, the painters will be back to right this wrong, and I am most sad that I don't have a camera to record the sheer ridicuous appearance of our walls.

I apologise for letting facts get in the way of a good story, but let me tell you, I was rather shocked and amazed when I came home to find part of the walls painted. Adam, I think you sould post the previous part of the conversation, it was also funny.
