Whilst washing the dishes last night I discovered that 1. The landlord had put down glue traps and 2. A mouse was adhered inside the trap nearest me. I thought it was cute until I realised that it was probably trying to gnaw off its own limbs to escape. As I wiped down the counter I imagined that any moment a limbless rodent would start snaking towards me across the lino to enact some tiny, mouse sized revenge.
I think there’s a horror screenplay in that. Stumpy the Killer Mouse. Silence of the Mice. The Walls Have Very Small Ears…
Suggestions on the back of a postcard please.
