Three Blind Mice

Let me start this post by saying that I live in a very clean house. Honestly, my wife is rather neurotic about keeping everything clean. That said, on Friday night, we had a little visitor. A mouse! We had finished handing out candy for Halloween, were sitting on the couch watching TV, and he ran from the half bath to under the TV. My wife of course freaked out and I honestly was a bit confused as to why she was yelling so much.

Once I figured out why she was yelling, I immediately sprung into action - however my efforts were for naught. He was too fast for me. So, I sent my wife to Wal-Mart to get some mouse traps. We baited them up and set them everywhere. The mouse however would not be caught that night. So, while I was getting my hair cut the next day, she did a little bit of online research. She found a battery powered mousetrap that seemed to be very bizarre. It shocks and kills the mouse. How did it work? Yup, you guessed it….. Dead mouse on Sunday morning. So, I had to eat some crow AND empty out the dead mouse. Loose loose.
