Happy Dead Mouse Day

Thursday, April 26, 2012

In other parts of the world this is known as Mother's Day. In our home it is "Dead Mouse Day". The story goes back many years. B and I had just moved into our first home. It was Mother's Day. He had to go to work. When I got up, there was no sweet card from Princess or from him. To be honest, I really did not expect one. When I talked to him later in the day he made no mention of the day. He did, however, ask me to take the dead mouse out of the mouse trap in the garage. From then on the day was known as Dead Mouse Day. (the funny part of the story was I just threw the entire trap (old fashioned, wooden, spring loaded one) in the garbage, I had no desire to deal with the mouse. He was annoyed (or pretended to be annoyed) that I did not take the mouse out of the trap and re-use it.

Eeeww! I would have throw the entire thing away too! I do not like mice! On a side note I always laugh in the pet store, why would I want a pet mouse when I spend hours cleaning to keep them out? Random thought, thanks!
