The Wife Got Freaked Out By A Mouse, Again!

So, she's talking to my sister and walks out to the garage, immediately upon opening the garage door, she runs in screaming her head off, never removing the phone from her ear. The kids are a little scared, and I can only imagine what my sister is thinking about on the other side of the phone. I figured it had to be some dead animal, and sure enough, the cat had left us (for the first time) a little 'present'. So I explained to my sister and the kids what happened, and the kids were more than willing to see me pick up the little carcass. I guess the cat still has her wild side. And fortunately it wasn't the dog, as she can misjudge her bite and leave an altered carcass.

Question:

Would it be deadly (for her or me) to play the trick on her where I get a toy mouse and film it while it darts across her?

You're sooo mean...  no 

I know I'll earn a place as the laughingstock of a.net for a while, but here goes my own mouse story:

One night I was preparing my lunch for the next day, when I saw a large mouse darting across the kitchen and hiding behind the fridge. Now, I didn't run screaming my head off... I went to wake up my dad and asked him to help me get rid of the pest. Dad came to the kitchen, moved the fridge... and nothing. He then moved the stove to see if the mouse had hidden there... and nothing. There's no other place in the kitchen where the darn rodent could hide, but there are plenty of other places in the house...  worried  After spreading mouse poison in the area, Dad went back to sleep and I continued cooking.

Some 10 minutes later, I spotted something moving under the curtain at the dining room's door. Upon a closer inspection, it looked too much like a mouse's tail, wagging back and forth.  scared  This time I started calling Dad without even moving from my place. Down he comes, ready to hit the pesky critter with the broom. He opens the curtain and...

... the moving 'thing' was just a worm.  embarrassed 

The mouse was nowhere to be seen; it disappeared almost without a trace, not before eating nearly all the poison and leaving mouse excrement on the floor.  yuck 



Don't expect to see me around that much (if at all) -- the contact link should still work, though.

As long as you post the video for all of us to see, I say, Do it!

As one who has fears of certain critters, trust me when I say that your life will not be worth living should you decide to do that. If your wife has a genuine fear of mice (as I do of cockroaches), what you plan to do is nothing short of traumatic. I'd kill you where you stood. Trust me.

Well, she did say one of us was going to DIE if I did that...

But seriously, it was just so funny to see and hear her reaction. I have no fear of critters at all, so I just can't even understand it.

Years ago, I had to go home and 'rescue' her from a long-tailed lizard in the living room. She had locked herself in the room till I arrived.

I might convince her that we could get a prize for the video.

Could have been worse, it could have been a rat...
The best story on this vein would be as to my mom when I was maybe in my early teens. One night (of course about 2-3 am) she woke us all up with a blood-curduling scream, running out her and dad's bedroom. She had felt something warm and moving at her feet. Turned out it was a neighbor's cat that had got into our house through a broken or loose celler window. I think she feared it was a wild animal like a skunk, racoon or the like. Still good for a laugh years later.

Why do you think we got the cat?

We are right in the city, but our backyard goes right into a miles long wilderness area, so we have plenty of critters to share. What I am afraid of is that the cat brought the mouse from the field as a present, so these episodes might become more routine.

I have a friend who's wife gets freaked out about rats. Anything else is fine... rats, however, are death to her. One time she saw a rat in the garage, and refused to go into the garage until it was "removed".

Her husband had a blow gun, along with some darts, plus night vision goggles he used for paint balling. One night he went into the garage, camped out with the night vision goggles, and scored a kill. The rat actually got pinned to the wall with the dart.

I have pictures of it... but they are rather disgusting. I haven't looked at em since I first saw them... seeing intestines hanging out is not my kind of entertainment.

Still, I thought the whole ordeal was rather funny. (by the way, this guy is a field biologist, so he was rather happy to be able to go "hunting")

Well, the wife is just like her mom. We discussed the episode last night, and her mom remarked that when it happened to her in Mexico, she jumped on the table till the mouse was removed.

Like mother, like daughter.

Just got a call from my mother in law, complaining that she almost got a heart attack over the 'tarantula' we left at her house. Apparently, the children had left a plastic spider from Halloween right under her coffee table, and she made my father in law take it outside, 'cause the sucker freaked her out!
