Unpleasant Discovery

Here's a Friday tangent for you. 

Yesterday, the Great and Powerful Oz needed a lift and so I played chauffer.  While on the 3-4 mile trip across town, he discovered a box of Nilla Wafers that Easy-E had left in the car on Tuesday.

As he dug into it, I said, "Don't do it.  Those Nilla Wafers will not bring you happiness and personal satisfaction."   He rolled his eyes at me and said, "Yes.  Yes, they will."  He pulled out a handful and ate them. 

Back at the house, I looked at the box of Nilla Wafers and realized that something was amiss. 

Our following conversation:
Me:  Look at this box. 
Oz:  Yeah, Ethan really tore into it.
Me:  It doesn't look like he tore into it.  Those look like teeth marks.
Oz:  Hmmm.  Yeah, it kind of does.
This got me to thinking about something I saw in my car . . . a long while back . . . and ignored.  

At the time, I thought, 'Surely not.  No, can't be.  Where's the dust buster?'

Then, a few weeks later, I noticed it again. 

And, I thought, 'No way.  It has to be dirt.  Skanky kids.'  Remember my problem with denial?

But, with this new evidence before me, I can't ignore it any longer. 

There is a mouse in my Mercedes.

And, the mouse likes cookies.  Oz shared a box with her..  I wonder if the cookies delivered the same happiness and personal satisfaction to the mouse.

Now, what to do about this problem?  Why do I seem to have a constant problem with rodents

These are not rhetorical questions . . .

Have a great Friday!

  1. Finally catching up on the September posts. You've been by this month! I think you need to move back to Dallas--those Ardmore mice like you too much. Christa
