Man versus Mouse: Round 1
The NY Times reports regularly on illegal aliens crossing into the USA. However, there’s another insidious immigrant invasion underway: mice invaded Rocky’s basement!
The “cute” little rodents know better than to come upstairs where the cats will pounce. So they party in the basement and in the walls.
Rocky set several mousetraps, and discovered the bait disappeared within fifteen minutes. Multiple times. Trophy Wife accused Rocky of being dumber than a mouse! His manliness challenged, he set up a nightcam video surveillance and caught the clever critters red-handed. He figures that if he can understand their “M.O.,” he can out-smart them.
Rocky will spend the evening watching “Caddyshack,” while he plans his next move.
By unanimous decision: Round One goes to the mouse.
[Disclosure: During a recent trip to London, Rocky and his family attended the longest running play in history: Agatha Christie’s “The Mousetrap.” Rocky hopes that his mousetrap doesn’t require sixty years.]
