Lately the mice have been getting into our kitchen garbage, which is really strange because it's in the center of the room. Tonight was trash night and I took out the bag, but didn't put another one back. Two hours later, there was a pair of mice frantically trying to hop out of the empty trash can. I drowned them both in the bathroom sink, one at a time. One was an adult and one was a child, but they looked identical except for size. Drowning them is a bit disgusting but I'm glad they're dead. I also have some money now and I hope to get DCon very soon.

Make that three dead mice. The third one died just like the previous two, but he drowned in icy cold water instead of warm water just because I felt like being a bastard.

Oops. I just realized that I've watched very closely while three mice drowned in front of me, and I did this while sleepy and nearing bedtime. If I have any dreams about mice flailing around in a water tank, I'm going to be very, very unhappy.
