Phone Conversation with My Father

Me: Hi Dad! What's up?

Dad: I found a mouse on the front step. I'm going to buy a aquarium for it and bring it over for the boys.

Me: Can't you just feed it to the cats?

Dad: (Chuckle) No. The kids will love it.

Me: Seriously. Just flush it down the Toilette.

Dad: No I really think the boys are going to like it. It's cute.

Me: Dad, it's a wild mouse. It could have rabies.

Dad: I think it's store bought and just got loose. It's a white mouse. Anyway I just wanted you to know that I'm bringing it over.

Me: Dad you can't! It's a mouse of questionable breeding and background.

Dad: (Laughing) So are you.

Me: Why don't you just keep it at your house?

Dad: The kids aren't over often enough for me to keep it here.

Me: I'll send them over twice a week to visit it.

Dad: I was just going to drive over and leave it at your front door and run away. You should be glad I'm warning you.

Me: It could have a disease! I can't keep it here. Give it to Jonny! (My youngest brother)

Dad: Here, talk to your mother.

So far no mouse. we'll see what happens today.

  3. He kills me! My Dad is so funny! He was just here fixing my garbage disposal and yesterday he taught my husband how to fix the cars breaks. I don't know what I would do without him! No mouse though.
