I have a mouse in

Filed under:General — eric @ 11:10 am

I have a mouse in my house. I’ve known he was there, because I could hear him playing in the kitchen while I slept in the next room, and on the kitchen table he left, um, physical evidence behind. Still, I wasn’t quite sure. The noises could have been made by the delicately stacked pans atop my wobbly refrigerator. My table has items on it mice love to eat, like bread and flower and sugar and rice, that wasn’t ever touched. Nothing was nibbled, no holes made in the bags or corners munched in the boxes. I tried sneaking in the kitchen while the noises were being made and turning on the light suddenly, but there was never anything there. Tuesday night, though, I saw him. The light went on and the mouse was on the table, blinking at me. Maybe I’ve been following Randy’s Epilogue too closely. Maybe it was the three margaritas I had with dinner. Maybe it was just that it was 2am. Whyever, I’m certain I caught the mouse in mid twirl, using my table for a dancefloor. Well… so long as he doesn’t eat my food or stir up trouble, I guess I’ll let him dance on my table when I’m not using it. Share and share alike, no?
