Like I once warned you…..DO NOT succumb to the temptation to poison him. Think about that parfum de deade moussie in your wall, and the feeling will quickly pass.

Oh, I suppose you would prefer catching him live in a Cool Whip container, like we did with that tarantula long ago…?

Got it. No poison.

I love this! I was just thinking a few days ago about a poem about coke in the shape of a glass bottle. I enjoyed that in my “other life” before so many naps, snacks, dishes, burps, chores, coordination:) occupied my brain power.

and I found the tell tale signs on my pantry shelf atop last fall’s peaches. Sorry, Shari, I did not know how to make this look like a mouse or the stuff he left behind! ‘Twas a great day when we caught three of those little rascals and plugged the hole we figured was the only way in!! Papa has a great story to tell about two traps that disappeared and were found a bit later!

I love it! Now I know what kind of poetry my class should try next! May I use this in class if I cite the author?

Of course! if I may beg the return favor of getting a peek at their creations? 🙂 Fun, fun.

a mouse in writing is much cuter than a mouse {in}deed!

Just revisited this with my class when we were discussing free verse. Always fun to watch them discover it.
