Monday morning....sitting at my desk, doing some last-minute-before-the-bell paperwork........students start filing into the room....and then.....................
SHRIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKK! A female student of mine LEAPS from her desk, screaming and squealing at the top of her voice. It wasn't until after a few seconds when I realize she's saying "mouse---mouse---there's a mouse."
So, MEEEEEE, being at my desk, go into "freak-out" mode thinking "oh my goodness! I have a mouse in my room??!!? Oh my golly----call Mr. Nauertz (science teacher) and get him down here with a net and bucket!!!!!!!"
THEN......as I walk over to her desk to try to see where the mouse is, STILL expecting to see it on the floor scurrying about.......THIS is what I see.....
OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ewwwwwwwwwwww! Would this NOT give you the heeby-jeebies??!?!!???!?!?!? At first, I thought it was caught in the binder's prongs since it wasn't moving much or attempting to get away. However, upon closer observation, the little bugger was nearing death's door! We tried to get the story from Brianna about how on EARTH that lil' guy got in her binder----and she said she'd had it in her car for the entire weekend. (HA! At least she admitted that she didn't work on her homework) ;0)
Anyway......our faithful Science teacher, Mr. Nauertz, came down, expecting to catch a live mouse, so he had net in hand and a bucket. He didn't have to work very hard to catch it though :0) After it was removed, I grabbed the disinfectant spray, because sadly there was some "mouse-substance" on her binder and book that needed to be cleaned off. EWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!! *shudder*
But seriously!! Could you IMAGINE?!?!??! Sitting in a desk, opening your binder to get ready for class, and BAM!!!! Mouse eyes staring at you!!!! ick!
So, that was the excitement of my day! What about yours????? :0)
