“Button, come close! Closer! I can’t share this with you within hearing distance of my daughter!
That’s better. Now don’t fall off your seat laughing while listening to this story. I’m sure you would have had you been here: Last night, a teenie weenie rat was spotted in the living room and that too by her! Since the staff had retired for the day, I was summoned to do something about it if I spotted it. I looked but did not find it. As her bathroom door was slightly ajar, I casually peeked in to find the tiny little soul standing on its hind legs as if pleading with me to let it go. I was tempted to do so but a firm command from behind instructed that I should lock her in the bathroom! I did so thinking that it would escape from one of the vents which is what earlier prisoners had done.
The next morning, the staff were summoned to check out the bathroom before she went in to get ready for work. And guess what happened! There was a piercing scream from the bathroom and she ran out in a flurry saying that she had definitely spotted the rat. Again the staff came running with all sorts of apparatus to catch it. This round of spotting it was also futile and she went in again to shower and get ready for work. As she was getting under the shower, she found the rat staring at her from the top of the basin with bright, sparkling little eyes. Once again the earlier rigmarole happened with her reprimanding the staff for not looking properly.
This is when I stepped in, opened the door fully and let the little thing run out. Having witnessed this herself, she once again entered the bathroom to complete her morning rituals.
Between you and me, the rat may still be in the house. Where do you think she’s hiding? What do you think she is doing? I think she’s too exhausted and lying somewhere fast asleep!
Bravo, tiny one. It’s amazing how you gave 4 hefty (in comparison with you) human beings a tough time and emerged as the winner! Bravo. Be safe.”
