Adventures with Lisa, Frank & Daisy Dewdrop

Mouse In The Trap

We live in the country, and there are mice in the house.

I suppose this is a result of that fact that we no longer have a cat.

We’ve had a tribe move in, and have been emptying the traps on a regular basis.

We can’t put the traps on the floor – Daisy DewDrop is too nosy…

So, we put them on the counter, in the cupboard, you know, where they leave “their mark.”

I don’t normally pay much attention, set the trap, empty the trap.

Very rarely do I hear it snap.

Tonight however, I heard the trap snap…

And fall from the shelf into the never-used crystal punch bowl…

And ring the bowl like a bell – again and again and again.

With the end of the chiming, came the end of a life.

A death trap in a crystal punch bowl.

If that isn’t ironic, I just don’t know what is.
