Could it be...?

As I was walking into my apartment building this afternoon, after work and a very frustrating trip to Trader Joe's (how can they be out of my bread? and my favorite chocolate treat? AND yeast? AND triple sec??? fer crying out loud), I saw it.

Outside the door that leads to my building's trash chute.

It was gross.


It was a decomposing mouse carcass.

I haven't seen that little fucker* Reynaldo, nor any sign that he's been here (yes, I mean poopy droppings) for... uh... when did I last mention him? More than a week ago?

Has he actually met his maker? Without my direct involvement?

Or have I just tempted the fates, by mentioning this at all?

*that was just for you, bobo!

Ooooooooooh your boyfriend is DEAD?


Worse than the mouse incident is going to ANY restaurant that's out of bread. It's simply not acceptable. Poor Terry!

i'm not sure it's him, buddhagirl, but i have my fingers crossed...

and this was actually a grocery store that was out of my bread. and since it's the only gluten-free variety they carry...i was annoyed.

Shit. You gotta know that I must live in some sorta hole if I didn't know it was a grocery store.

I am an official dumbass today.

Grocery store or not, I'm still pissed for ya.

Poor lil mouse. But hey -- mouse-free without guilt! That's a good Wednesday!

Trader Joe's, I wish they would open one of those down here. I love their balsamic vinaigrette. I still have a bottle that I've been saving forever. I think I should chuck it; I've been living in Florida for 6 years.

Hey!! What's with the word verification?? I'm retarded and I can never read them right!

reynaldo...although i never met you, i'll miss you.

poor little mouse?? he did not belong in my home... but in his own little mouse home. wherever that is. was.

jmai, i don't know what i'd do without trader joe's. it's become an addiction.

and i turned the word verification back on after getting 40 spam comments in one day. i hate it too, believe me.

and bobe, if i have another rodent visitor, i'll be sure to send him your way.
