The My Brain Is Fried Friday NOT series of the most important questions in world continues…
Do you ever have mice?
My experience with mice had been affectionate and from afar, based on children’s books (Stuart Little, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, etc.). Then in November we became a mouse magnet. They were able to climb stairs and furniture, defied trapping attempts, and sneered at the dogs, who are lousy mousers. Finally, we figured out when we updated our kitchen the builder cut corners and left a gap behind our washer/dryer that led to the foundation and an exterior basement window. My son filled it in with super polymer stuffing that get hot and expands, problem solved.
I’d mentioned the mouse debacle in Brain Drain, and am still on alert for small invaders (I swear we are clean about our home) but it was really quite a problem. Anyway, now I’m back to liking mice…elsewhere. How about you?
