I had a dream last night that I was eating dinner. I had a few bites and was getting into it when I noticed some weird sticky clumps. I looked closer and noticed a hole on the side going into the center of my pile of food. a tiny mouse came out all sleepy eyed and stared at me. I was so grossed out that I’d been eating a mouse house that I froze in terror! the mouse ran off and I finally came to my senses and got some courage. I bent over to catch the mouse so I could throw it outside. Just as my hand was wrapped around the mouse my big grey cat (i don’t have a cat), pounced on the mouse and so my hand caught the mouse and the claw of the cat. i pryed the cats claws from the palm of my hand while holding the mouse. i dropped the cat and realized he had killed the mouse and it was dead in my hand. I decided to let the cat have it and threw it on the floor. I woke up and had to brush my teeth I was so grossed out about eating the mouse house. yuck.
