life through the eyes of a mouse

Challenge by Dave: write a blog every day this week from the perspective of a different animal. So, as I'm feeling uncreative, I'm choosing the shelter mouse first.

I try to stay hidden, after my brother Freek got squished by a refrigerator. One by one our little mouse population has died, Gepke, Jacob, Ewout, and even Rosemary. No one knows I'm still here, and so they haven't given me a name yet. Probably if they see me I'll be called Lynn. Anyhow, today has been pretty uneventful. Not much spilled food on the floor or anything, even though Dave was cooking. Tonight it was so loud in the cafe! They were watching a movie, School of Rock. I was going to scurry to my usual perch on the shelf next to the speaker, but it was too loud when those kids started rocking. So I scampered into the cafe, which was a little dangerous, but since everyone was sucked into the movie they didn't notice me. It was quieter there, and I enjoyed the movie, even though it was predictable. After the movie a couple of guests started playing chess, and the Russians were thankful for Meghan's superior knowledge regarding castling, but Bingwa was less than thrilled. Sometimes the truth just hurts. Well, I'm going to go back into hiding so they don't find me when they mop the floor. Doei!

Your next animal should be a confused little fish in the waters of "Nieuwe Meer" during the baptism last Sunday...

ok marco...(and i did say bikkel)

it was just a regular day, but the sun was actually shining, so i could see through the murky water a bit better. i was minding my own business, just swimming around when suddenly there was an intrusion! it couldn't be summer already, i thought. i didn't expect to be dodging humans for another few months at least, but i couldn't deny the three sets of legs entering the water. then they suddenly stopped, facing the shore, and the human in the middle fell all the way in! i can't imagine why her balance was so terrible, but the other two caught her and then they all ran out. crazy bikkels. i'm sure this strange event won't happen again and i can swim in peace again...
