Mickey the fake?

Jul 28, 2009 by

The Mouse family (Mouse IS Mickey’s last name right?) apparently spans many generations.

I thought between the traps, the dog and blocking off their red carpet access to the basement, that we’d finally rid ourselves of Mickey and the Gang.


Yesterday, I used the guest bathroom and not only were there the usual turds all over the floor mat but, there were some new, highly scattered turds next to the toilet. These bastards bypassed the glue trap (after somehow taking a huge mouse dump on it and not getting stuck) on the OTHER side of the toilet and went around to crap behind the trash can. I could not believe it. (Perhaps this is my payback for the incident at Casey’s last summer…that story is for another day.)

You’d think after this long dealing with these little assholes, I’d be used to it.


Today, I mentioned to Adam that perhaps a new trap is necessary, given the situation. He got a funny look and asked me to describe in a little more detail, exactly what the problem was and where it was located. By the time I was done, he was laughing hysterically. Naturally, I’m getting more and more pissed by the second, and am totally in the dark as to where the humor in this situation lies.

The “mouse turds” are dark chocolate cookie crumbs.

He ate cookies while taking a shit, tried to throw the package away (because, apparently, if you’re going to eat cookies while on the toilet, they have to be 100 calorie south beach snack packs) and missed, therefore dumping cookie crumbs all over the floor.

I started to laugh, feeling pretty embarrassed for thinking they were mouse turds. Then I got mad again. Why, exactly, if you know you dumped cookie crumbs all over the floor, wouldn’t you clean them up? Ugh. Men.

We did actually see a live mouse last night. Bella chased it into the fireplace. And so it continues.

P.S. Adam asked what I was writing about tonight, and I read this blog to him before posting it. He is STILL laughing about those damn cookies. The crumbs are still on the floor. And that’s exactly where they’re going to stay until he cleans them up.

P.S.S. Can I just say how satisfying it is to hit spellcheck and have its response be “no misspellings found?” GREAT!
