Recount

Make that 16.

I had peanut buttered a trap, set it and put it at the top of the stairs to the basement yesterday (which is where I put stuff so the "next time I go down there" I'll just grab it. There is mucho stuff there, as you can imagine). So yeah, there was a mousey in there. JBird says it was a fat one too.

Dang. I guess I'm not as in tune as I figured. It also means they are still trying to get upstairs. Sick.

However, that doesn't mean the lessons learned are not still valid. We should still liken those to our own lives (cross reference 1 Nephi 19:23).

You can never be too careful.

I would just like a little (read: a LOT) of credit for guessiness. I'm a genius. Fact.

It's just like when the angel appeared to Lamen and Lemuel. They were still naughty. Just like it I tell you.

Congrats to Em on winning--but alas, I fear it will not be the end of the meeses. Good luck honey.

I think this reiterates lesson #6: "Don't count your dead mouse bodies before they hatch." But really, I think you should continue to believe that every dead body you find from here on out is the last dead body you'll ever find, or else how will you sleep?

Memzy said...

She's got a point there^^.

Memzy... you're a friggin genius!! We're not worthy. Obviously.

The rest of you... it's like you're only here to torture me. I mean, do you WANT me to burn my house down? Huh? Is that what you WANT???

Amy Thurston said...

Maybe not YOU, but someone really should burn it down. Either that, or you must embrace the mice. Maybe they would cook you some shepherds pie or something else tasty from the dog food you give them.

Your house is big enough to share, so have a heart and be nice to a couple of orphaned rodents. Just make sure it is not co-ed or you will be repopulated in no time.

Memzy said...

Yeah, set up little meese dorms like DT--boys on one side, girls on the other. They can comingle until midnight every night or until their roommie throws down the key to the lobby.

Okay - I know I'm a little slow on the draw here, but I once had a use for one of these little guys. I stopped fast at a stoplight and dumped an entire costco (already backed) pizza on the passenger side rug of my van.(cheese side down of course) When I went to clean it up I couldn't get all the sticky cheese off and put it in the garage assuming it would have to be replaced. A day or two later I walked out there and one of my little garage tenants had eaten every last bit of that cheese. I scrubbed it with my Bissel and it was good as new ! Crazy huh ?
