Univited House Guest

Did anyone else catch the story I've copied and pasted below this week? After I read it, I went right home and checked under my bed, pulled out the pots and pans in my kitchen cupboards; peering inside with a flashlight. I pulled back the shower curtain; ready to come face to face with an invited house guest.

I went so far as to get down on my hands and knees (now don’t get too excited) and search the crawl space of my basement; I was leaving no stone unturned. I thought I might find someone hiding in my house. As far as I can tell, the coast is clear. I do have two permanent; quasi-uninvited house guests: Pussy one and pussy two. They both showed up at my door step about five years ago and well, they’ve decided to make their stay at my house permanent.

Now that I’ve read this story, my head is spinning out-of-control, because I’m considering working it into erotica piece. I can totally visualize the out come (no pun intended). My heart is racing; my hands are sweating. Heavy sigh.

What the hell am I talking about? You ask, scratching your head. Do I ever disappoint you? Okay then, please read the uninvited house guest story below and let me know your comments.

TOKYO - A homeless woman who sneaked into a man’s house and lived undetected in his closet for a year was arrested in Japan after he became suspicious when food mysteriously began disappearing.
Police found the 58-year-old woman Thursday hiding in the top compartment of the man’s closet and arrested her for trespassing, police spokesman Hiroki Itakura from southern Kasuya town said Friday.
The resident of the home installed security cameras that transmitted images to his mobile phone after becoming puzzled by food disappearing from his kitchen over the past several months.
One of the cameras captured someone moving inside his home Thursday after he had left, and he called police believing it was a burglar. However, when they arrived they found the door locked and all windows closed.
“We searched the house ... checking everywhere someone could possibly hide,” Itakura said. “When we slid open the shelf closet, there she was, nervously curled up on her side."
The woman told police she had no place to live and first sneaked into the man’s house about a year ago when he left it unlocked.
The closet is part of a Japanese-style room, one of several rooms in his one-story house where the man lived alone — or so he had thought.
Police were investigating how she managed to go in and out of the house unnoticed, as well as details of her life inside the closet, and if she had taken anything else besides food.
She had moved a mattress into the small closet space and apparently even took showers, Itakura said, calling the woman "neat and clean."
