Not Me...I would never share such a thing!
Please go no further! If you do not read this disclaimer before going on...
you will certainly be sorry!
If you are squeamish, if you have a mouse phobia, if you have an olive oil phobia,
or if you are normal
Here is the deal. We have a cabin on a lake. The cabin can go months without seeing a human being. Unfortunately when the humans leave other creatures tend to party there.
The last time we humans were there we must have made something with olive oil, probably popcorn.
And per my usual scatter brain self I left the top off the oil...
Can you see where I'm going with this?
Yes in my absence the local mice decided to use my olive oil jar for a hot tub.
Unfortunately for them slippery olive oil jars are easy to get into...
But not so easy to get out of!
Last chance to not look...
You are a brave soul...or crazy!
Not Me, I would never take a picture of something like this!
Strange how they packed there little selves all the same direction, all 4 of them!
If it wasn't so completely disturbing it would almost be cool...almost!
You know everyone is always talking about building a better mouse trap...well I may have just done it!
What is funny (or disturbing) is that I was in the cabin making popcorn. I hadn't turned on the lights so it was rather dark. I picked up the olive oil to use it and thought hmmm this is kind of heavy I looked down and saw something dark in there. I presumed my weird older sons had added olives to the olive oil or something equally strange. I put it down without pouring it (thank goodness), made the popcorn and went outside to eat it with the kids.
It wasn't until that night that I came in and flipped on the lights and saw was was really in the jar.
Now I'm not a squeamish girl in the least bit...but I nearly dropped it right on the kitchen floor. Even for me this was a bit over the top. Marinated mice are just not my thing!
There you have it...the whole sorted tale. Sorry, but I figured I needed to keep it real with you. I wouldn't want you to think I was glossing over my life now would I?
Not Me...I would never gloss,
Well except my lips on occasion...
Or my hair at Christmas...
But other than that I would never...
So anyone still here?
If so I will be leaving you with this...
I figure that is the least I could do!
