Something happened to me this weekend; it was equal parts hilarious and embarrassing. My friends and I were spending a few days at our new cabin in the Colorado mountains. Our mission was a complete top-to-bottom cleanup. The cabin had been sitting empty for many years before we bought it -- there were cobwebs, dust, and grime as far as the eye could see.
One morning, my friend Sue and I were on the porch sorting through a pile of dusty knick-knacks. I picked up a small wooden birdhouse. "How cute!" I cooed as I slowly opened it. I was surprised to see two black eyes. They belonged to... a HUGE MOUSE.
