So I took a day to “catch up” and wrote a huge dialogue about the “Green Monster” and all about the hidden elevators and the “firework incident” but then while spell checking (God knows I need it!) the whole thing vanished into oblivion! THIS is what you get…
There was a hidden elevator…the place was hidden behind a “regular suburban ‘hood” and a horse barn…we had a killer view and a killer utility bill…it looked like a giant 4 story warehouse, army green, metal siding, and one strange door floating somewhere in the middle of all that. I was given the “boot” along with my roommates on New Year’s Eve for lighting fireworks off the deck. I guess it was the last straw or something. Our landlady wrote the eviction notice on a wooden block then used to barricade the door that night after she knew we hit the town… she was crazy like that. Entering our apartment when we were gone was only one of her bad habits. She also liked to go through our trash! We would get additional billing for this “service” on our rent statements according to how much “recycling” she was able to “recover”!!! I still believe to this day that this whole thing built without permits in secret sometime during the 70’s and that we were paying the entire utility bill for the main house and the barn. The lights and heaters were always on. Evidently the horses got chilly and were afraid of the dark…
