Of Mice and Boys

Most of you know that we have some different pets beside the normal cats and dogs. We happen to have an albino corn snake and 5 mice (2 regular and 3 Egyptian Spiny Tailed). (I'll let you draw your own conclusion as to the reason for this.)
Imagine this. Teen son is showing off two baby mice to his friend (they just opened their eyes, the mice not the son) Baby decides teenagers are too much takes leap of faith into air lands on clean kitchen floor Momma: "What were you thinking" teenager boys sprawling on floor "poor helpless baby mouse" runs in terror for the stove Momma is yelling in the background teenage boys are scrambling and scooping mouse- scared, runs from Giant captured... nope - slips through huge teen hands mouse evades them Momma is wondering where the dumb cat is mouse runs for china cabinet teenage boy makes one last attempt Momma is yelling louder (as if this is going to help or encourage anyone) Teenager dives for mouse Mouse finally back in cage with his own momma Human momma sighs smack teen on arm for getting mouse out. Cat saunters into kitchen Daddy comes home... laughs... Momma smacks Daddy on the arm..
