Well ok in this light sure it looks like a mouse swimming in my water bucket but at midnight last night when I packed the water pail into the trailer it looked like a leaf!
That is until I got it inside in the light.
Have I told you how deathly afraid of mice, rats, any thing that scurries out of hiding places over my toes; I am? I didn’t scream because I figured laying there face down in the water he was probably dead. If I would have screamed Kato would have come to look, seen it was a mouse and would have knocked the water(and mouse) over and flooded the trailer.
Maybe the mouse wouldn’t have been dead and just napping and it would have been scurrying every: where probably across my toes. It would have been complete mayhem!
So I carefully placed the water bucket back outside and figured maybe the mouse would be gone by morning. No such luck, he is dead cuz he’s still face down in the bucket.
So now I have to do something with it without letting Kato see me cuz he’ll want to “play” with it and my stomach can’t handle it.
I know I am living on a farm and mice live on farms and they are God’s creatures and they can’t hurt me; I don’t want to hear it ok? all that I want is the little dead mouse to not be in my water bucket.
I will update you all now before I even post this. I got rid of the poor little mouse. I feel guilty for having nasty thoughts about him. The bucket had dozens of little mouse turds in the bottom; the poor guy.
He goes out for an evening stroll, comes across a bucket he’s never seen before and thinks, “I wonder what’s in that bucket goes?”. (Kinda like where does that road go) so being of the adventurous nature the little mouse climbed right up to the top. So proud he made it all the way to the top he can hear the thene to Rocky playing in his head and he gives a final heave ho and hoists himself over the edge and falls into a bucket of water. Tragic!! I bet THAT wasn’t on his “bucket list”.
