Jesse got to wear the Superman costume yesterday. (NOT LIKE THAT! Gah...you people!!!)
OK, so y'all knew there was a mouse in the house. I don't mind rodents in my house, but I"d like to at least have them in a cage running on a cute little wheel, alright??!?!
ANYWAY..... so the cat is on and off interested. We, on the other hand, just want her to keep it away from us, but not actually....err...eat it or anything. The cat is all kinds of exciteable. She hasn't had this much excitement since last time a lizard got in the house. She's jumping here and jumping there and................got out of the house. (Silent profanity from me here) She went running under the house thinking she had gotten away til she realized Jesse had the water hose out and then she came running to me. Ha....deal with that, kitty.
So, after that drama, we went back in the house....had dinner, etc.....and figured the mouse would make itself known sometime.
Time went on.......and nothing...... even the cat lost interest.
So, everybody wanted dessert after dinner. I decide to make oatmeal raisin cookies. There I am in the zone.....me and my cookies......and I hear it. ::scratch scratch scratch:: I pause.....and listen. ::scratch scratch scratch squeak:: "Jesse......can you come here for a minute please?!" Heh......
I let him know where the general vicinity of the scratching was and went about my cookie business. All the sudden I hear 'Jesus Christ! Um, Amy, can I have a bucket? or a bowl....or a SOMETHING!!!!' Indeed, he found the mouse. The teeny tiny scared little mouse. Now, I forgot to mention that Adrian was very upset that our little friend might end up with an untimely demise at our hands, so...........he was SO FRICKIN' HAPPY that Jesse was able to............
CATCH THE MOUSE AND SET IT FREE.
Cheers and whistles, please.
I told Jesse afterwards "You forgot to sing 'Here I Come To Save The Day!' "
................and so ends another day here at the Looney Bin.
