there are some things still right in the world.
Finally, 3 weeks, ten traps and three kinds of poison later, we have a dead mouse!!! One down, ??? to go!!! (Only problem is, if there are 5 mice, this could be months at the rate we are going…let’s not talk about that.) Also, a word of advice is, never leave a bag of microwave popcorn in a bag in your closet. The mice WILL decide to invade and take over your closet, and you just might never know why.
On another note, I spent two hours in a Starbucks in University City today and received a giant breath of fresh air. The unfortunate downside to spending much of our time in Center City is that the wealthy and the artsy (or both) dominate and I am sort of ashamed of my humdrum clogs and chinos. Everybody carries big Urban Outfitters or Saks shopping bags, depending on their style, and probably spent an hour styling their hair alone, minus the rest of their body. This sort of stresses me out on a regular basis. After all, I’m from a rural college town where most people spent more time on studying than on their makeup.
But in University City, they were wearing jeans and fleeces. Some people had pony tails and many looked like they hadn’t touched a hairdrier in days and just might not even be wearing makeup. I felt a warm glow (the hazelnut hot chocolate might have helped) as I felt that for once, I actually fit in.
