This is Why it May Be Helpful to Have a Man Around

Hey Internet! What’s crackalackin’? What’s shakin’ bacon? What’s… Well, you get the point…

Anyway, I’m very tired, so I’m just dropping in with a very quick story about what happened today.

Today I got home from work and had around an hour before I needed to be at Bible study. I made myself a Math Hat Boy-style grilled cheese sammich and some squash soup and was all ready to eat and leave when my mom mentioned that the TV in her bedroom wasn’t working.

Since I am a wonderful daughter, I went upstairs, turned her cable box on (because I have mad problem solving skillz – 10 points to you if you have heard the Wizard Rock song of the same name) and headed downstairs to brag about my superior technical knowledge.

Boastfulness is a sin Internet. Remember that.

Also, before I tell you this story, I want to state that it has been just me and my mom in the house for quite some time and I am very proud that, for the most part, we are able to get by very well. Remember that too Internet.

As I get to the bottom of the stairs, I see something small and furry and still. For you to fully appreciate this story, I will tell the rest of it to you in dialog.

Me: What is that? WHAT IS THAT? DEAD MOUSE! DEAD MOUSE! MOM! MOM! DEAD! MOUSE! MOM!!

Mom: WHAT?!? Where?

Me: HERE! MOM! DEAD MOUSE!!!

Then there was a lot of girly screaming. From both me and my mom.

Mom: I’ll take the broom, you take the dustpan.

Me: I CAN’T. I CAN’T. DEAD MOUSE. I CAN’T! NO! EW! MOM! DEAD MOUSE!!

Mom: WE HAVE TO!!

Me: I CANT!

Then there was more screaming. From both of us. There was some jumping too.

Me: Ok. Ok. Ok. I’m closing my eyes. I’m closing my eyes. I’m closing my eyes. Just lead me to the garbage. I’m closing my eyes. AHH! I OPENED MY EYES! I CAN’T!

Mom: I’LL GET THE DOORS!

Then I threw away the dead mouse. And there was more jumping and screaming.

In our defense, THERE WAS A FRACKIN’ DEAD MOUSE IN OUR HOUSE GUYS!!!

After that epic freak out, I did feel the need to do something self sufficient and impressive, so when I got home from Bible Study I hung my bike from the ceiling in the garage. Take that universe!!!

But seriously guys, I don’t think I will ever sleep again because WHAT IF THERE ARE MORE DEAD MICE IN MY HOUSE?!?!?!?

So how was your Monday Internet? Better than mine I hope.
