Eeek Mice #5

Last night, I got back from an art opening, turned on the kitchen light and a mouse (I hope) the size of my loafer ran across the counter top, dropped to the floor, and continued across the room and disappeared under the stove.
I screamed (no meek “eek,” this time), then emailed Gus.
Gus–a big one just ran across the kitchen countertop, dropped to the floor and disappeared under the stove. I can’t wait for Doug to act;  I need to call an exterminator tomorrow and let you work out the payment with Doug.  
Dear Claire: You and your mistress, Sheila, are cordially invited to tea tomorrow.  RSVP.

    Clarie–sorry you can’t make it… let’s take a rain check. At the moment, there’s no fresh mouse available but I’ll let you know, at this address, if this should change. However, I’m afraid that our delivery service doesn’t include mice. I already have ENOUGH problems with my Toyota. AMH

    Thanks for the invitation–tea and mouse sounds like a delightful combination (hold the tea, of course). I’m sorry, but I won’t be able to make it. It’s raining, as they say in that ridiculous expression, cats & dogs (why is that anyway?). I really don’t want to be out in the rain and get my beautiful fur coat wet. Mom (my mistress as you call her, but really my servant) has other plans and she is the driver in the family. You’re always welcome to visit me and I would never refuse a nice mice mealif you bring it along.

What do you think?
