I'm a good homeowner. We recycle paper and cans and bottles. We use a Green Bin for kitchen waste. That's all the leftover food from meals, peels, meat, even cat litter if you have a cat. The pickup is every week but hubby forgot to put it out last week so it was getting full.
It is also stinking hot and muggy up here in what everyone thinks of as the cold north. With the humidex, today it is 42 C (over 100F). We can barely breath. It's been like that for days. So... Extremely hot weather, lots of rotting food, flies. What do you get?
OMG, I went out to the garage to put out the green bin and the inside is completely covered in tiny white maggots. I'm sure they were enjoying the all you can eat buffet I had provided.
After garbage pickup today, my hubby decides he should clean that bin out. Making matters worse, we are on a water ban for all outside water use-no watering plants, no washing cars, no filling kiddie pools, no cleaning Green Bins. So he sneaks into the garage, closes the door and washes out the bin 3 times. If they arrest me for using water, I will have to plead ewwww. When I got home I used half a bottle of Tilex. I don't think there's a maggot left.
Which led to my appetite being shut down completely. I only have to think of those tiny white crawly things and food doesn't seem very appetizing.
Ewwww. I hope I didn't ruin your appetite!
