It was a mystery-solving day around here for the Sommerer Gang. Where to start?
Well, every so often during the summer we would notice this one spot on the basement floor that would be a little wet. It didn’t smell like cat pee, so we figured it was just condensation from all the humidity, and let the cats live. Last week I went to put some boxes away in the basement (by that spot), and noticed that they were wet, too. Could it be ghosts? It looked a lot like ectoplasm. We put down some newspapers and waited. Nothing happened all week.
This time when we looked up, though, there was a drip! (Last time there wasn’t.)
What the what the? Using my visual-spatial powers, I deduced that it was coming from upstairs somewhere. (I’m genius like that.) What did we find?
The culprit! This leaky jug was inside the front coat closet. No wonder the stain felt a little greasy. Rain-x is slick! The puddle was oozing over to a crack in the floor, but we figured it only actually went down when the puddle was big enough. Puddle would drain, leak would stop, puddle would build up – reach the crack, then drain, etc. etc.
Other mysteries solved: (mouse over the pictures for answers)
Who ate the top of Lloyd’s last piece of pizza?
Why was the sky on fire while Lloyd was mowing?
Why did Lloyd only smell animal poop when his feet were propped up while reading, but never when he walked around to find the source?
Got any mysteries? We’ll solve ’em.
