    ... sits on the bathroom floor even though we have not yet used the shower and the room has a strong smell of urine even though we have not yet used the toilet, the window looks into an air shaft and about 4 feet away is the window of another room.

    ... It was hard to take the smell but tasted okay. I had fun dissecting its eyes, head and spine but I didn't attempt to eat any of it neck upwards.
