I was sitting at the kitchen table working on a lesson plan when I noticed a movement out of the corner of my eye - a mouse! I flipped the fuuuuck out, screeching, hyperventilating, standing on my chair. H came running downstairs to see what was wrong. I immediately called the landlord and he is coming over after work to set a trap. He says field mice are pretty common in this area (urban sprawl and all that).
I hate the idea of the trap and just hope it is humane - he says they will catch it alive and release it somewhere. Neither of us will be home when he comes.
Shudder. I have an irrational fear of mice.
