Its NOT Mickey and This AINT DisneyWorld

So for weeks, no months, I have been wedging my work bag between the table leg and the back of the teacher's desk on the floor of the classroom in the building in which I spend the bulk of my day. This is where I deal with the boogerlickers you so often see me complain tweet about. If you're new here, I work as a sign language interpreter for an inner city school district. My case load has me working between two buildings during the school day. I start with the high school (6 -12th grade) and move on to the elementary kids (unaffectionately Boogerlickers).

Caught up now?

So this is February. School started in early August and ends May 20th (hallelujahpraiseJesusThankmyluckystarsTGIFhappybirthdaymerrynewyearapplesauceisawesome) it can not come fast enough. Back to the story. I have been wedging my work bag back into the little spot where it is mostly out of sight escaping the curiosity and sticky, boogery, slobbery fingers of little boogerlickers. For the first time ever... let me say that again... For the FIRST. TIME. EVER the teacher says to me Friday after watching me stow my bag,

"Oh, you'll not want to put your bag down there. You should put it up high. I can move things off the filing cabinet and you can put it there."

"Thank you. The kids haven't bothered it at all. They haven't even noticed it down there. It should be fine. Thank you very much though."

Her eyes widen and she brings a hand to her cheek, "Hmmm...yes well, we have little friends that I'm worried about. Mice you know. We have mice in here."

HOLD

 UP

WHAT?! 

SIX MONTHS INTO THE SCHOOL YEAR and I am JUST NOW finding out that we have mice in our classroom?!

While a mouse itself doesn't bother me, cause me to jump on chairs and shriek at decibels that shatter glass, I DO NOT want to have them stow away in my work bag taking a free ride to the house of The Duck.

I don't care how cute you or the little furbabies are that I caught a glimpse of in the trashcan in the bathroom....

Mickey...You Have Been Warned.

That is SO not the friend to bring home!

P.S. I'm so glad you liked that post, it came to me at the right time and really changed my view on things. I can't believe an ahh haa moment would really come to me. I'm so glad you have a new helpful person in your life and things work out for the best. I give you props girl for that summer month with nothing coming in. I so can't save good like that.

By a small python and put it in your bag. They love mice.

I'm with Coffeypot. Snakes love mice, and small boogerlickers ;)

I don't jump on chairs if they're small. A slap, stamp, stamp squish usually enough :)

Two Normal Moms said...

OH man, can you imagine getting home and having that little face peek out at you! Gah!
