Just headachey today after three days of migraines. If only I could take those rescue drugs more often. Damn those Luciferous hormones.
Last week, as I was readying the garbage to take out to the curb, I noticed my 25-year old large brown Rubbermaid garbage can’s lid appeared to be half missing. For 25 years it’s been filled with black sunflower seeds and a large plastic scoop so I can fill the bird feeder.
I peered inside, a little afraid to see what critter may have been in there. and to see why it was half missing. There within was a heavy battery charger I had put on top of the lid and forgot to move. It had just broken/collapsed half the lid right into the can with the seeds. I warily took out the battery charger but peered in a little closer for critters. Sure enough, there was one dead mouse dude. Rigor mortised and splayed out on his back. He looked extremely pleased with himself. I also noticed that every seed had been cracked open and eaten.
When I reported this mishap to Lawyerboy, he said: Do you think the mouse died of satiation and ecstasy or from the heavy battery charger falling on him?
We are awaiting reports from the County Mouse Coroner and toxicology. Let’s hope the results are “satiation and ecstasy”.
