What's grosser than gross?

Two weeks ago, Melissa carved a pumpkin. She named it Henri. It was cute, if somewhat large. Nice eyelashes. The weeks passed. Henri began to, um, soften around the bottom. Henri began to tilt and sag and wrinkle. Eventually (last night), Henri began to leak. Henri had a couple of small, moldy cracks on the bottom. Henri was stinky, and still leaking. I emailed Melissa to check in, and it turns out she's out of town until Monday or Tuesday. Henri will not make it that long, so I must deal with Henri. Ew. Henri is now in the trash. Ew.
