Another unfortunate thing happened while i was staying i’m my friends apartment for the visit. As you know when i got their i found bed bugs. Ew! Anyways after that was resolved another incident occurred that was my fault.

As some of you may know, or may not,  Louisville Kentucky is famous for a few different things. A few of those are the creation of the Hot Brown, the Kentucky Derby, and one thing i was very excited about which is Bourbon. Some of you may not have heard of bourbon. It is a staple in this part of Kentucky especially since many of the distilleries are near Louisville and you can actually take a Bourbon Tour and visit them. Some being Makers Mark, Jim Beam, and Woodford Reserve. Well i did just that, and it was excellent! While at one of the distilleries they also made a specialty wine that i figured id buy and try late. So I did. This is where we get to the oops part.

As i was relaxing after a hard day of taste testing bourbon i decided to relax and open the bottle of wine. Well, I didn’t have an opener. So as i was struggling with a makeshift tool it popped open and a nice amount of it spilled on the carpet. Yes, if you have ever done this you know how i was feeling. It wasn’t even my carpet! So I quickly looked up someone to come get the stain out and found a very friendly and efficient business named Louisville Carpet Cleaners. I didn’t want to have my friend do it since it was my fault and he was being kind enough to let me stay there. Not to mention he already had to get rid of some bed bugs. So learn from my mistake and don’t make a makeshift wine opener on carpet.

So, as you all know I have a friend in Louisville, KY.  I was recently visiting and staying in one of his rental homes that wasn’t occupied at the time of my arrival.  Well was I ever surprised to find what was waiting for me when I arrived.  After a few days I began to have little bumps on my arms and legs.  After self-diagnosing my problem we discovered I had a case of the bed bugs.  I know you aren’t supposed to let them bite but let me tell you they bit and it was a horrible experience.

My friend felt terrible (and so did I) but he acted fast and called his friends at Louisville Pest Service and they came out promptly and took care of business.  I don’t live in Louisville but I just have to recommend these guys.  They were professional, fast and effective! So my live was inconvenienced for a bit but I shortly got make to my routine.  Moral of the story you ask??? Don’t stay over in your friends empty rental properties.
