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