Of Mice and Women

I'm currently house-sitting for friends, just for two weeks this time. They've been fighting a resilient mouse population for some time, which battle I naively believed to be confined to the kitchen. Sunday night debunked that myth. The horde decided the bedroom was more interesting. The amount of scrabbling was enough to keep me awake until early morning when I gave up and moved to another room. Yes, I surrendered.

Picking Cherries in the rain last weekend. No, I did not climb the tree.

When the morning came around I(sleep-deprived and exhausted) went with vengeful thoughts and bought a hand-full of mousetraps. I set no less then seven traps in that bedroom, but didn't catch a thing. Now I'm wondering, where are they now?
