Ok It’s 4:17 - been trying to get back to sleep for an hour so I go downstairs to get a drink of water. Sitting at the kitchen table and a mouse just ran over my bare feet. Picture a huge silent EEEK!!!! cuz I can’t wake anybody. Now sitting immobile in a corner in the dark.
Weirdly, this also happened at the 7:30 A.M. Mass on Sunday. Is it me?
Either he just ran by again or there’s two of ‘em. Still in my chair.
