opposable thumbs

angelofmercy5 wrote a blog this morning about a mouse in the house. i'm sure we all have our stories - so maybe we can start a round robin of EEK.

here's mine.

i lived in a tiny apartment in an old house in Cambridge. and i had a mouse. now i didn't mind so much when it skittered across the floor or peeked at me from a distance. but this mouse, well, this was one entitled s.o.b. of a mouse. one day i was lying on my couch reading - a glass of wine and some cheese on the table beside me. i glance up and damned if that little beggar isn't eating my cheese. still i figured, live and let live.

BUT, i woke up one morning and it was sitting there on my chest, looking at me. the scream could have been heard two towns over. the ewww factor got me and so i bought one of those gentle traps - where the mouse survives and can be relocated to another site. three times i baited it and three times the little bastard got the bait and left the trap unsprung. i bought poison.

that sunday, me and a fellah were making sweet love when we heard this little gasp. the mouse stumbles out to the middle of the floor and does a camille - gasping, pulling itself along the floor. god, can anyone say mood kill? so i ask my lover to get rid of it and he looked at me, got up, put his clothes on and left. so now, it's just me and Camille. i go towards it slowly, thinking i will just grab it and throw it out the window - i know, DOH.

this mouse wrapped its tail around my hand, bit into my thumb and hung on for dear life. now, at this point, most people would panic but not me. i grabbed the bottle of wine we'd been drinking and smashed Camille on his little noggin. wine everywhere. and i did forget, being in the moment, that the little noggin was attached to my thumb. the ER doc - well he was very nice once he stopped laughing but he made me go home and get the stupid ass mouse out of the bush under my window so they could check it for rabies.

and just like angel, i cried and said "poor mouse" and the doctor shot me a look and collapsed into laughter again. i think he was being unprofessional, don't you?


You cannot conceive the many without the one.

In an old farm house lived another mouse with attitude .He would nonchalantly strut acoss the room in the middle of the day .Yup ...this one would be up on a chair going eek .In a brave moment I decided that I was going to to sit in the middle of the route and at least see where he was getting in and block the damm hole .So on my chair feet up , I sat .He tormented me by not showing for what seemed like forever, and than out of a dark corner he came , right under my chair.I held me eek and watched him proceed to the bathroom.The audacity of the little rodent galled me .I decided it was his day to perish.LOL...but as I approached the bathroom in stealth mod, I realized that I had no weapon ...poor planning I thought .However, a toliet plunger appeared, and I plungered him to the floor .No suction on the carpet ...poor planning again!!I went eew , I must have killed him anyway .But , I got my new grease splatter thingy out , and slid it under the bottom of the plunger, so I wouldnt have to touch this demon .Damm if those black eyes werent looking at me trapped imbetween the screen and plunger.I looked up apoligised to the goddess, smiled back at him, and push the flush handle !!

Hell no, he wasn't be unprofessional...He was just being human. That's the type of doctor I want, one who doesn't take himself or herself so seriously....BTW, great story...our critters bring home animals all the time...yesterday we had a bat, a mouse and a bull frog presented as prizes...gotta love those animals. *grin*
