Eeeeek!

As this title suggests, there was a mouse.

IN MY HOUSE. Which I wouldn't mind so much, but it was dead. Which I wouldn't mind so much if I had set a trap, but no. I was rummaging through some craft crap, trying to find a marker and saw what looked like a super moldy deflated balloon. But then it smelled a little. Look at the picture and don't judge me.


Now closer.



Here it is from the bottom. YUCK...
You can see its little ears and one leg trapped beneath a bottle.


Well I was freaking out again. I made Brandon take care of it. I really didn't think that this was the kind of person I was, freaking out over pests. But here I am. I couldn't even look at the empty container with the mouse in it as he was taking it outside. I flipped. I was wearing rubber gloves. I feel a little sick to my stomach. Seriously.

That is completely disgusting! I hate mice more than anything! It gives me anxiety just looking at those pictures!

I am so the same way! I can't look at the mice we do catch in traps. My sister is the opposite. She hates them too but when her husband bludgeoned one to death in their little boys room she had to examine it to make sure it was really dead. I much prefer to keep my ignorance.

Honey, what you don't know is that I didnt really throw it away. I hid behind the dumpster with a bottle of barbeque sauce and ate the mouse one delectable morsel at a time. I was affraid you had noticed because later I found some of its cute fur and a toenail stuck between my teeth.

Okay it took me a mintute to realize who the gti337 was. I was a bit freaked out!! That is gross I hate mice. We had one in a rolled up rug downstairs once and I made Jay throw the whole rug away.
