Of Mice and Men

The office mouse returned today.

He scurried across the floor from underneath my colleague's desk and came running towards me. When he reached my desk, he sat at the side of my chair, and remained there quietly. We co-existed happily side by side, there was no squealing from either of us. We were quite content.

Until a colleague tried to capture him with a teacup.

Wisely he ran off again. I miss him.

I know other people are disgusted by mice, but it was the closest I've come to having a pet since I've lived in London.

I like mice, I used to have them when I was in high school. They're bright and fun.

They make great pets.

Mice are sweet. Though I don't like them in my kitchen...

Anyway, just wanted to wish you all the very best for Christmas and 2009. I've enjoyed reading your posts and discovering your blog.

Happy Christmas!

Aww bless. I never understand the ear-piercing shrieks of others. Shame your moment there was so brief. Next time, bring cheese?
