A mouse tried to hump my leg...

Ok, so maybe not full on humperoo but still very close. On my way home from work tonight, I spied with my little eye something black running across the passenger floor mat. I thought "for sure that wasn't a mouse". I tried to focus on the snow covered road while going a measly 55 mph. Oh shit, there it goes again. Damn it, it was a mouse. So how do I get the rest of the way home with a mouse up in the front of my NEW van without crashing. I called my husband and told him he had to come get me and drive the van home. He said no. He told me to make some noise with my left foot and the mouse would stay away. He told me that a mouse was not worth crashing over. Clearly he had never thought about a mouse scurrying up his leg while driving in blizzard like conditions(ok so it was just snowing and a little icy). So he hung up on me and told me to stop being a baby. I tried to keep my left foot moving so whiskers would stay away from me. It turned out that my "noise" I was making was a mating call for the lil bastard. I have to admit that it sounded like a mouse but I thought he might think it was a bigger mouse that would beat him up. Nope, he showed his ugly little head again. I did make it home without him humping my leg but only because I cursed loudly at him and was swerving like a maniac. he probably got car sick. My husband saved the day by putting a mouse trap in the van and caught him within 15 minutes of getting home. Dumb ass mouse! Seriously...

  1. How does this stuff happen to you???? You could sit in a chair and never move and strange things would continue to find their way into your world... I lived in the country, lived in the city, lived in a new house, with lots of displaced mouses and not one ever made it into my car... my lovely sister - your stories simply amaze me!!! I got chased out of the office by a raccoon today, and I am not making that up. It was waiting for me as I left the office and I had to run to my car! Screaming like a little girl!

  2. OMG, no question I would have totaled my vehicle. I'm proud of you for making it home. I would have stopped the vehicle and walked, possibly froze to death! I hate mice and I'm deathly afraid of them (I know that's stupid). I'm glad your life is so exciting, keep posting!

  3. Kudos to you for not crashing your new van! I would have for sure! But, seriously I'm really glad you made it home so you could share this story. It cracked me up so much that I think Steve thought I'd hit the "mommy beverages" a little too hard last night!

  4. Just reading the title of your post made my chest tighten up and my heart rate race. I would not have made it home. I'm not sure I could ever drive the van again w/o being completely paranoid!
    You are one strong woman!!!
