So, I thought that I'd share this with you if you needed a laugh and it would help us get closer to that 700,000 posts goal.
Last week I noticed a mouse had been on my stove. I think we all know how we can tell. I tell DH and he sets a trap. Next morning the trap has been sprung but no mouse. This happens 3 more times. We have the kind of trap where the mouse has to lift a cover off the bait and that signals it to spring. DH positions the bait a little better, uses a nut and covers it in peanut butter. The mouse escapes another 3 times. Now DH is extremely mad. He changes tactics and goes for the sticky glue trap. Hooray! I find the mouse sprawled out on it at 1100pm. I tell DH. He decided that he was tired and he would take care of it in the morning. Bad move. Next morning, guess what happened? No mouse on the trap! Only a bit of fur. DH was infuriated! We have set out another sticky trap complete with a Warfarin pill DH had left over from chemo days wrapped in peanut butter (DH: "I'm not messing around") but have not seen the mouse since.
I think the mouse won. DH is convinced that this is some super-strong mouse and really really wants to catch it. DH was surprised that the mouse was able to pry itself off the trap. So was I! Perhaps the mouse will stay away now. DH has been checking the trap every day and is always disappointed to find it empty. Men!
Thanks to cheryl2005 for the siggy!
