Y’all, that title’s a spoof on that song from The Sound of Music… that other song… not the song about deer and tea and sewing. Meanwhile… since it isn’t winter anymore, the mice are back scurrying around in my window well and making me squeal like a little girl every time I hear a rustle in the moldy leaves. I AM SUCH A WUSS!! Guess I won’t be getting any sleep tonight! These mice are too smart to get stuck in the traps, but they still eat the cheese I put on them. They’re like little scurrying, spectacle-wearing, pocket protector-holding, snort-laughing rodents with Harvard degrees! Watch out Mark Zuckerberg, Mickey Mouse is the new “IT” man… he’s getting up the plans for Mousebook as we speak. Oh MYLANTA… he just scurried again! Someone needs to come up and knock me in the head with a ball bat one of these days… a 300-pound chic scared of a 2-ounce furry creature! STOP IT! But they carry diseases… like eatscupcakesallday-itis and watchesmarathonsofthebradybunchwithtissues bacteriosum. All debilitating illnesses!! Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!
I came here to talk about other things besides mice from MENSA… like the new walking route I took on Friday night… yes, I said Friday night. That’s how I spend my party nights… walking new routes with a beer in each paw… did I say beer? I meant H2O bottle. So, the new walking route happened to be on one of my most favorite streets in town, known around these parts as The Boulevard. It’s just a lovely corner of the world and they have these new (to me) walking trails going up and down steep mountain crevices… perfect for this hates-all-things-with-an-incline-and-mice gal… and by perfect I really mean, get out the oxygen tank, Florence… Whitney’s gonna need a new set of lungs kind of perfect.
I was quite proud of myself, purposely walking down as many hills as possible just so I could hike back up them… and you know what… I made it up every last one of them durn things… take that part of my brain who always tells me I can’t! Of course I sounded as if I was the big bad wolf with my huffing and puffing, but it’s a good thing to challenge yourself… plus, the donut shop was at the top of the steepest hill… and they were having a sale on Krispy Kremes!! 😛
Next up… Mount Everest (that one movie about it… not the actual mountain!)
Question of the Day: What’s your next planned Challenge?
