The much anticipated episode aired last night, that’s right fellow Gleeks – MADONNA! I was not disappointed, not only was it awesome but I have already downloaded the full Glee – The Power of Madonna album. Woke up a little late this morning so it’s not on my iPod yet – but it will be and then watch out world I’ll be dancing in the Industrial Park Streets.
My Glee experience was a little tainted however, by a noise that had the power to ruin the whole episode for me. SNAP!
Boy – “did you hear that”
Me – having heard something but unable to identify what it was, and so fully prepared to ignore it and assume everything is fine, “What?”
Boy – “I think we caught another one”
Me – “A mouse? Gross!” – curling into a tighter ball on the couch in an effort to protect myself from said trapped mouse. “Go and check it”
Boy – “NO! I’m not checking it until it’s had some time to die.” – turns out he equally hates the mice, he’s just slightly less of a baby about it.
Boy – Puts on shoes (?) to go over to the pantry to check on said noise.
Me – “Is there something there?”
Boy – “We’re going to need more traps” (neither of us want to touch anything so we just throw out the trap with the mouse.)
Me – “Gross”
Boy – “Email our landlord.”
So I did, and Steve will be over to handle our situation some time today – hurray.
Now the bigger question is why are they back? Well, as it turns out this may be my fault. The item that they got into and ate was a bag of dog treats that we have for when Denver pays us a visit. Apparently I may have forgotten to seal it shut, and the mice may have had a field day and eaten the ENTIRE bag. Snausages, not just for puppies apparently.
So the Boy deserves an extra thank you I guess, since not only did he dispose of the first mouse (the second he left to fully die over night – torturous I know but they’re vermin and I have no sympathy – call PETA, I’m sorry they’re gross) but rumour has it, their presence is sort of, kind of my fault.
Live and learn I guess. Notes for our puppy – get a sealed puppy container.
As for ruining Glee – I think it did for the Boy, but for me the episode was jam packed with TOO much singing to be overshadowed by one little mouse!
