Got mice. Had ’em before, we’ll have ’em again I suppose. Set a trap in the garage a couple days ago. Finally got one. Threw him/her away and reset the trap. Smack! 25 minutes later, got another one. Oh, I forgot to mention how interested my kids are to see a mouse–dead. It’s easier to study if its not running across the garage floor. They wanted to see mouse #1 so I showed it to them before I threw it out. A couple of ewws and one awww. Mouse #2 however was MUCH more fascinating. Can anyone (or everyone) guess what a 5 yr old boy would notice about a 3″ long dead mouse? Um, yeah. The poop. Poor thing died with half a poop sticking out of his butt. How embarrassing because once a my 5 yr old boy sees something like that, he can’t keep it to himself. “Maddie! Come look at his poop!!!” “Annaliese!! He’s got poop in his butt!!”
The indignity of it all.
