I'll Be There For You

Blog coming, but I had a moment today I thought you'd enjoy. A friend and I caught up through Tweets. I 140 charactered the high points of life, and then it was her turn.

She responded, Part-time roommate is great (has a chain saw & removes dead mice).

Sometimes, Twitter makes us shallow. And sometimes it makes us even more brilliant than usual.

OK, this made me laugh out loud, despite the fact that I wrote it.

And I must point out that said roommate also takes his dirty laundry home with him, washes dishes as soon as he uses them, and keeps the television turned low. In short, he's perfect.

The chain saw part scared me. But, okay, it was Sara. In Vermont, chain saws are probably used for something besides horror movies.

I should clarify (for your city-dwelling readers) that I live in Vermont, where trees fall regularly and must be cut up to burn in your woodstove, and where mice habitually try to move indoors, and live-trapping them means they bang around in the cage until you wake up and take them outside - and then they sprint back into the house and get there before you do.

Ah. I'm glad I read the comments for the further explanation. I thought the new roomie was killing the mice WITH the chain saw. I was like, "Wow! Either they have some really slow mice, or he has fabulous hand-eye coordination!" Either way, I was impressed.
