Why Am I Spreading the Peanut Butter with a Fork?

We have a mouse.

Our friendly mouseguests like to hang out in our silverware drawer!

Don’t ask me! 

Makes me want to say, “@@@@@@@@!”
(Yes, that is me saying ATsignATsignATsignATsignATsignATsignATsign!  Don’t you usually go around yelling At sign when you are mad?)

It also makes me shudder and want to vomit.
When I was in 4th grade, I thought the word vomit was just another word for poop.  I remember distinctly arguing with my parents about this!
I was wrong.
But that’s a different story for a different time.

So Chris, being the big brave man that I need him to be, has put a trap in the silverware drawer.

I don’t want to use the silverware drawer EVER AGAIN.

And right now, I am not.  I am only using utensils that have been in the drying rack overnight.  This means I have one baby spoon, 3 adult spoons, and a couple of forks.  Spreading peanut butter with a fork is not easy.  Let me tell you.

But it’s worth the effort.

I know.  I know.  I know!
I know what you are thinking.
“Gianna,  you have been eating mouse germs probably for a while.

Yes!  Thank you for your wise observations!
 I didn’t KNOW it!!!!

Now, I know it and would like to refrain.

 Thank you.

    When I took “Food and Dairy Microbiology”, like nine(?) years ago… I learned that there is an allowable limit of rat poop in pepper. For real.

    I had lunch right after that class. All my friends refused to sit with me because I had so many interesting facts to share with them. 😉

    Haha about the ATSIGN 🙂

    Are you guys using glue traps??? They really work!!! There's a peanut or peanut butter variety which comes pre-spread … no fork required 😉

    I would probably burn my silverware drawer …
