meeces in pieces

my parent's house had 2 visitors last week--mickey and minnie...they had invaded the house--evan and i heard a rumbling under the tread mill and knew whe had some uninvited visitors..my friend Lou came in from San Diego...minutes before going to bed, cathy k yelped...a mouse in the house! In the morning I awoke to my father yelling as usual..i was staying in the wood so Lou could get a true understanding of the insanity of my family--so my father screams up to me, "Kate, i left some mice traps--make sure they are strategically placed!" what? "Kate...make sure they are strategically placed!
So i get the traps--put a dollop of peanut butteron all 4 of them and place them "strategically" around the house..
Lou and I went to the ville and i get a call from my mother.."Mission Accomplished.." hilarious..one mouse gone...

I got home that Sunday and my dad filled me in on the detes..not 1 but 2 mice had been caught...(not received well by cathyk) my dad says, "they always have a buddy with them...and i am not letting anything in my house that doesn't pay rent!" brilliant...

the best part? my dad decided to put the mouse out of its wriggling misery and step on him...not realizing that he had just stepped on a glue trap with a wriggling mouse under his shoe..i think swearing ensued but i was praised for my strategic placement...

Note to Peta: no meeces were harmed in the making of this blog...

Oh sure they look cute but those mice would club you if they got the chance. Next thing you know your in a motel bathtub sitting in ice with your kidney removed.

We had one get and torment our home for about a week. Knocking stuff over, eating this, crapping on that. What an jackass. I too complained that our guest was not even kind enough to pay for any of his stay, or hell at least do some yard work.

Luckly we were able to end his reign of terror with some bad soup. I am just thankful it was just one.

I think Mr. & Mrs. K8's Parents need a cat.

Maaybe they can borrow "There's a Blog In My Throat's" cat, and then two problems could be solved at once: your mouse problem and TABIM's cat anger problem!

On a side note, at a former job of mine, we started getting a bunch of mice running around the office around NOvember, so maintenance gave us the glue traps to place all around. Well, we caught some mice, and one was in one of the glue traps, and my boss gave me a baseball bat and was like, "Here, put it out of its misery." And I was all, "No way, that's gross. You do it." And he wouldn't do it either.

I don't remember what ended up happening, but I know I didn't smack it with a baseball bat.

It has been scientifically proven that the House of Mouse have sold their allegiance to Vast Mosquito Conspiracy.

They are nothing but petty mercenaries. Fight them! Fight them hard!

May victory be assured, and may it be yours.
