Did you answer "true" to ten or more of the above? Careful! You may have houseguests! Houseguests like to be taken to Multnomah Falls, Timberline Lodge, and the Coast. They do not like to be taken to scary parts of North Portland, your friends' houses, or the emergency room. Most houseguests disappear in three to five days. If you find that you have houseguests longer than that, consider putting out glue traps.
