the “passing on” of a mouse…
or 2 or 3 or 4 or more.
it was a process…
its not really a mouse i have in my house.
maybe i didn’t really hear it running
around or eating my m&ms on the table.
oh! m&ms are missing out of the dish.
some crumbs are along side the dish.
well….maybe there is a mouse.
between the mouse and myself.
“if you stay..i’m going to have to cause
great bodily harm…and i don’t want to.
if you stay…you understand you will be
step 4…waiting & more denial mixed in with more
negotiations….not to mention wishful
thinking on my part…i’ve never set a trap before.
step 5…visual siting.
mouse running across my counter.
this is not OK. continued negotiations.
i’m a tree hugger. i respect all life. i don’t
want to kill you. you really need to go.
step 6…blatent rebellions.
a 1/2 hour later the mouse is now hopping
in & out of my garbage can 3 ft from me
while i am watching…3 times.
a trip to the hardware store for traps.
step 8…the “passing on” of a mouse.
from the book of everydal life…
