i would consider myself
a tomboy at times for sure
but there are times.
a lot of times
were i am just
i am not wanting to do things
certain things are just
this weekend i found myself yelling
"i need a man to come over and handle this!!"
this story is real
this is my life.
this really happened.
it all started when my dear friend amanda came into town to visit
we we're relaxing on her last night
after a busy busy weekend
and we're watching scary movies on the couch
and we see him
in my house.
i convince myself no way
he must have just been passing through
but we better get a trap to catch him the next day
just in case he didn't leave
a trap..that should be easy
it was a two pack
but i CERTAINLY won't need the second one
within 10 min
we hear him.
gus gus in safe trap
after a little screaming and
me basically making my dear friend
and HOUSE GUEST
take care of him
in the cookie tub.
safe ready to be set outside.
We felt very confident
WE DID IT!!!
we didn't even have to call our dads!!
(insert rocky theme song and victory lap here)
ready to continue watching our scary movie
then we hear it
1 min after sitting down
what sounds like a DOG in my closet
something got caught in the second trap
and this one...
sounded like it weighed more than me
knocking over everything in my storage closet
i am screaming
"what in the WORLD did we just catch"
i'm ok with just leaving it in there forever
"no need to really see what's in there, let's just keep it there"
haha amanda is WAY more brave than me
she opens the door.
gus gus's friend
this is the point i start screaming
"i can't do this..i'm only a girl.."
i'm half kidding and half DEAD SERIOUS
there it is.
only his tail is the trap
so he's just running around with a trap
on it's tail.
knocking over everything in my closet.
i start crying
i feel horrible
then laughing at how stupid we're acting.
haha i didn't know what to do
so we did this.
we line the doorway with paint cans
this way we could protect ourselves
by standing on them
and try and get him into another tupperwear container
let's just say
lots of screaming
lots of crying
(on my end)
lots of "Lord why am i single i can't catch a mouse!!"
hahah truly comical
one point i couldn't breath from laughing and screaming so much.
the ways we tried to catch this thing
lots of jiffy reduce fat peanut butter was used
tupperware taped to the end of a paintbrush roller
haha lots of failed attempts
1 hr of our lives gone forever
but we got him.
set free outside
and only a few things in my house broken.
this shelf fell off the wall
i need a new broom
and some new tupperware
oh and a new remote control
i'm very big on being strong
and trying your hardest to figure things out
those are for the boys
and i get to be the damsel in distress
