I'm a bad roommate

So lately there have been a lot of little bugs in the house that I share with 4 lovely young women. I never really thought much about it. They kind of look like fruit flies. I know one of my roommates will sometimes eat half of a piece of fruit and then leave it out on the counter unprotected. You can understand when I saw fruit flies I didn’t feel the need to go investigate. Every time I went into the kitchen there was no fruit to be seen so I just left the issue.

Just a few days ago I was in the kitchen fixing dinner with my roomies Kate and Erin. Kate is across the room and looks at the fridge and says, “Oh my gosh, Oh my gosh!” in a very startled and scared voice. Erin and I cautiously inquire what she is freaking out about. Kate then gets the step ladder out and says I think I saw a creature on top of the fridge. (A CREATURE!?!? What does that mean I am wondering) Kate slowly goes up the step ladder and then after she sees what it is she starts laughing hysterically. Erin and I take a look too and here is what we find….

Then Erin and Kate start having a discussion about the fruit flies and the decaying stench coming from the fridge. I just stared at them for a long time and then said, “It was ME! I’m sorry! I forgot I had one banana left.” The banana had been there for two weeks. I think the banana was bad in the first place. Does fruit really shrink that much?
For the first time I felt like the bad inconsiderate roommate. I don’t think they'll hold it against me.
