We're currently fixing up our basement. One of the guys helping us with the renovation had to unplug the fridge/freezer and move it. He forgot to plug it back in.
We discovered this approximately three days later.
I was doing laundry and detected the distinct funk of rotting flesh. I know, even typing those words makes me want to ralph! I looked at the fridge and saw a few tiny drops of blood on the floor. Ah, crap.
The good news:
This is our extra fridge/freezer set up and most of the stuff in there was the weird leftover cuts from a 1/8 of a cow we bought last winter... like the heart, liver and a few (sniffle) short ribs. It could've been worse.
The bad news:
We had to clean it all up and it was thoroughly disgusting. Blood, guts, gore and stank. And that's why this is Hey Eleanor challenge #253. You can watch it all go down in the video below.
PS I mentioned that we're fixing up our basement, which means this thing is finally gone. Couldn't be happier!
