I don't think I would be able to forget that there was a dead mouse in my pocket. But then again, I would almost certainly never put one in my pocket to begin with.

Story told to me by a bootfitter at Taos Ski Area:

A girl was on the first day of her ski vacation. After skiing a couple hours, she came into his shop complaining of cramping in the toes of one foot. The other boot felt fine. The bootfitter took her boot, reached into the toe area, and pulled out a dead mouse;

"Well, there's your problem!"

Couldn't you just put the mouse in the microwave to warm him up a bit for your snake? I would prevent embarrassingly pulling a dead mouse out a of your pocket at a time or place were you might not want to.

Is that a mouse in your pocket or are you happy to see me. (drum roll cymbal crash).

I have a friend that says "Do you have a mouse in your pocket", in response when you say something like "Well we shouldn't have done that...." or "We need to do this ......".

Oh, come on. The average Fooster has to be good for a rat or even a hamster or a banana in their pocket. A mouse?

There is a forum member of an electronics forum I frequent that keeps pill bugs and spiders in his house. He posted some pics of the house, spider webs and filth all over the house. He even goes as far as putting out food and water. A mouse in the pocket is nothing.

Well both are weird, bugs are something most people don't want and there are better ways to warm up a dead mouse for a snake.. But you know the old saying, to each their own.

During college days my wife and I shared a house with a guy that did naturalist paintings and displays for the local Natural History Museum. He often had dead snakes, dead lizards and dead mice in the freezer to either use as painting models or as food for the live things that were in any of several "tanks" around the house... the live things could be anything from Scorpions to Rattle Snakes to Skinks and other small critters.

Venturing into the freezer for foodstuffs was often an adventure... We were used to it, but on occasion a visitor to the house would open the freezer, looking for ice cubes, only to be confronted by this small frozen zoo. It made for interesting "conversations."

My grnadma owned 2 houses, one behind the other. One of which she rented. She died after I was about 10 y.o. The family prepared to sell both the houses and I was assigned to help my father clean out the back house. The tenant was a taxidermist and left most of his shop behind. Try to imagine going into a dark musty basement at 10 years old and seeing jars of eyes and other animal parts on the shelf.

Did you find a glass jar containing a brain, and labeled "Abby Normal"?
