Some things cannot be unseen.
In other news, a mouse crawled into the bowls of my car and died this week. Well, the mouse probably crawled in and died last week, but this week was a special week in the mouse decomposition process. I’m not an expert, or know anything really, about the rate at which rodents rot, but I can tell you, it’s not an odor one forgets. We disassembled most of the ventilation system to no avail. I still haven’t found the corpse, but with this crazy heat we are having right now, the poor bugger seems to be on the decomposition fast track. Thankfully, the smell has mostly dissipated by now. I did stuff air fresheners in all the places too, which seemed to help. Although, I think fake coconut car freshener is now forever associated with dead mice in my head. All things considered, I’ll take that collateral damage. Andy suggested I take it into a mechanic to get the mouse body extracted.
"So… how do I make that appointment? ‘Oh hi. Yeah, I have a dead mouse I need you guys to remove. Do you do that?’"
"I’m sure they get that more often than you think."
"At least you can tell them where it isn’t since we took a quarter of your car apart.”
"Or, we can save money by letting nature takes its course. If we’re lucky a weasel or something will come and extract the corpse for us."
"I’m not driving your car this week."
At which point I imagined a weasel crawling into my car to eat the dead mouse and then getting stuck. I imagine a weasel corpse might be easier to find.
Anyway, how was your week? Do any of you have a fun chicken and/or livestock related story?
