so i think its about time to tell those who i haven't already told about the events of tuesday night involving our little unwelcome rodent. since it first showed up last month there have been a few more sightings in the kitchen but since reading week (when ben came back to find his bed full of mouse poo, nice) its been rearing its little head in the bedrooms too, nowhere is sacred to mr. mouse.
so tuesday night i was sat on my bed on facebook playing bejewled blitz most probably when i hear ben shout to josh that the mouse is in his room. so i ran upstairs to check it out, i've yet to see the mouse and naturally i want to know what the enemy looks like. at this point it was hiding behind ben's shelves so josh lifts the shelves and away and it makes a dash for under the bed, as it does ben jumps on the bed in fright the quickest i've ever see a man move. my laughter at how much of a scaredy cat ben is attracts theo and ed up and its not long before rob appears too, baseball bat i hand.
so there's 6 of us in this tiny room and the mouse is hiding under the bed with no escape. i leave the room, i'm not contributing anything to the hunt and don't particularly want a mouse near me so wait outside. i don't know exactly what's going on in the room but the next thing i know theo opens the door (i'm not sure why) but the mouse swiftly follows, running over his foot. its coming towards me so i start running down the stairs BUT THE MOUSE IS FOLLOWING ME. at some point he climbs up my leg and i flail sending him flying down the stairs and then i stopped to see where he's headed. even though my rooms closer he goes for rob's, struggling to get under the door he pauses for a moment, LOOKS AT MY ROOM, so i run and slam my door and then it scuttles off under rob's door.
shouting that its gone under rob's door, rob charges down the stairs, still with baseball bat in hand and kicks his door open drugs raid style. him and the others search his entire room but by this time its disappeared down one of its holes. thankfully i don't have any holes in my room so if, god forbid, he does pop up in my room then its through the door. i wish we had a cat.
