The ghost baby didn't exist in my apartment alone. There were reports of the ghost baby in other apartments around town. In some apartments, money would appear after the ghost baby drowned itself. In one case, the ghost baby took a wedge of gorgonzola, still wrapped in plastic, instead of money. In another case, a cheese platter—cubes of cheddar and monterrey jack with little toothpicks in them—would appear after the swirly death.
No one knew quite why this was happening, but they were sure that the disappearing/appearing money/cheese represented some kind of transaction, presumably taking place in the depths of the sewers. One person theorized, "It's probably for drugs."
