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...
