Of Mice and Boy Mom

"Mice are dumb!" That's how a thirteen year old boy comforts you when guilt over a mouse trap that didn't finish the job turns you into a big bawl baby.

But, getting caught in a trap is not what makes mice dumb. Nor is leaving little love pellets in the cabinet under the sink, that would be what makes mice freaking, gross, germy, disgusting, vulgar, little varmints.

Nope, what makes mice dumb is the same thing that makes this Boy Mom dumb. And, that would be cheese!

I don't know if mice really even like cheese, they're still dumb whether they do or not. I do know that I like only a few carefully selected varieties of cheese. Yet, whenever they sample cheese at Costco I try a piece. Bleaaagh!

Dumb barely covers it!!

Yikes---the worst part of having mice is having to deal with them after they're dead. I'm sorry!

Blech indeed!

Mice are NOT dumb. They've learned, somewhere, that if they ever step a tiny little paw into this house that that would be dumb. There for I have concluded, so far, that they are quite intelligent little animals. Molly may have something to do with it as well.
