In this part of the country, we have been snowed in for a few days. My brother and sister-in-law came and spent a couple nights here, and we really had a fabulous time. We ate some yummy comfort food, watched some great movies (You've Got Mail, anyone?), enjoyed the snow, and relaxed.
That is, until an unwanted guest showed up.
There is now, officially, residing with us, a MOUSE. A live mouse. And not really a tiny mouse. He's pretty big. And really creepy. And his tail has got to be like a foot long. I think it's like one of those mice that are in NYC. My brother saw him first when he was in the shower (my brother, not the mouse). So, of course we all ran to the bathroom to see the mouse.
Somehow, in the hysteria of that moment, I had my wits about me enough to grab my camera and record the event. Harrison (my brother) and Mark got the brilliant idea to spray the mouse with carpet cleaner. Because, I mean, who would want to get sprayed with carpet cleaner, right? Surely the mouse would retreat. So there we are, all crowded in the bathroom, carpet cleaner flying, me screaming, Harrison in the shower, and the dogs wondering what in the world was going on.
So what happened? The mouse retreated (I'm sure only temporarily) back into THE CEILING. So that when it's my turn for a shower, he can make another appearance and trap me and try to get me back for him getting sprayed with carpet cleaner. I know that's what is going to happen.
So, you wanna see the video? Yeah, I thought you might. Please excuse the extreme loudness of my voice. Here it is:
