As if I didn’t have enough problems already, my computer has been complaining to me all day that my mouse’s battery is low. I don’t know why, but that struck me as funny.
Perhaps it’s because for the last two months, we’ve been trying to do something about some tree rodents that got into our attic from a tree that had apparently grown up over the roof of our house. When my wife called the pest control people to ask them to send someone out to get rid of our mice, the guy asked what made us think we had mice. After she told him we could hear them running around at night, he said, “Have you ever heard the expression, ‘quiet as a mouse’?”
Apparently, since we can hear them, we don’t have mice — more likely they are tree rats.
Which is a real bummer, because I was just going to wait until their batteries were low and then try to grab them as they ran by in slow motion….
Stay tuned for some more serious discussion on “gang problems” — not related to either mice or rats — coming up soon.
