BUZZING IN THE WALL
This is bizarre. I'm sitting in my bedroom, watching the tube, when suddenly I hear a strange noise coming from the direction of my bathroom. Initially thinking I imagined it, I heard it again: A muffled buzzing. Now, I'm thinking there's a big bug or something in my bathroom. So I tread toward it cautiously.

Turns out, it's coming from inside the wall between my bathroom and bedroom. What could it be? I'm thinking it's a palmetto bug or some other winged insect that holed up in there and is now trapped (I hope). I suppose it could be an electrical short, but it doesn't sound right for that.

Of course, there's a third possibility: That I've gone right out of my mind. Again. Ah, what are the odds?
