While sitting in a nail salon, getting pedicures.

We were watching the music videos on the television and “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepson comes on.

Bug: That’s not how you wash a car.  She’s doing it wrong.

Mom:  *lol*

This was a continued conversation about the afore mentioned mouse wrangling…a little more detail for your reading pleasure:

Mom: just how did you catch him?
Bug: apparently I’m macguiver.
Bug: he was behind a large planter that couldn’t be moved
Bug: so I set up a box on it’s side next to it and had a girl bang on the other side
Bug: ran right into it
Mom: wow
Mom: that’s impressive
Bug: he was scaring the poor little college girls
Bug: I mean, a couple of them helped which was cool
Mom: so…now…
Mom: how did he escape?
Bug: well you see
Bug: I had peeked into the box to get a picture of him
Bug: down in l-wing
Bug: on my way to the office of vet tech (one person apparently)
Bug: then I closed the box again
Bug: but as I was talking to a guy in a nearby office
Bug: he crawled through the small gap in the top and just jumped right out
Bug: and into <vet tech>’s office
Bug: door was closed.
Mom: oh my…
Bug: I figured, I don’t even know this woman I can’t leave a mouse in her office
Bug: even if she is vet tech.
Bug: so I stood outside her door for about 15 minutes waiting
Bug: he didn’t fall for the box trick again
Bug: but I at least got him out of the office
Bug: lost track of him after that
Bug: and that
Bug: was my Monday.

Recent instant message conversation (March 2014):

Bug: I caught a mouse
Bug: and then accidently set him free in the l wing.
Mom: yikes!
Mom: wait…L?
Bug: yes….
Bug: I was trying to find a vet tech person
Bug: in hopes they would have a humane solution
Bug: other than “kill it” or “put it outside in the freezing cold”
Mom: I have one of those high-pitch thingies in my office, anyway
Mom: no hearing mouse will come near me
Bug: but the deaf mice
Mom: yeah…I gotta watch out for them
Mom: the blind ones will likely get caught by the farmer’s wife
Bug: cause they’re dumb
Mom: wait…dumb are the non-speaking ones, right?

Wedding advice from Bug: Never, ever wear new lacy underpants on your wedding day.  Regardless of what the Victoria’s Secret salesperson tells you.  It’s just a really bad idea.

In a recent IM conversation with Bug about going to dinner that night:

Bug: and I didn’t mean anywhere fancy
Bug: dairy queen or culvers or steak n shake, whatever
Mom: but I got my Culver’s outfit on!
Mom: oh…you don’t consider that fancy?
Mom: I need to get out more.
Bug: well the amish do
Bug: we saw a whole bunch of em in there one night
Bug: then I fell off my bike
Bug: those two things are actually unrelated.
Bug: except that they happened on the same day

Mom: LOL LOL

Bug:     I’m wearing my super awesome zebra heels today
on an unrelated note, I also seem to be having trouble walking…

Mom:  LOL  “unrelated”?

Bug:      probably unrelated    stairs seems to worsen the issue

Mom:  wait…don’t you work on the ground floor?

Bug: at work yes     at home, I work on all the floors

Mom:  oh…LOL  but at home you can remove the shoes

Bug:  …one of the rules for being a diva is you have to do housework in heels.  I think.

Conversation in car this past weekend, talking about storms & tornadoes:

Dad: So, you like your new job?

Bug:  Oh, yeah…it’s great!

Dad:  What are your benefits like?

Bug:  Well, I found out it’s called a “cafeteria plan”…in fact, when I was talking to HR and they mentioned “cafeteria plan” I was thinking “Oh, I wonder what day they have chicken nuggets?!?”

Instant message conversation, 02/15/12 @ 4:08 p.m.

Bug:    so I’ve figured out that my job is basically Tim the Enchanter   “none shall pass!”

Mom:    LOL LOL

Bug:    “answer me these questions three”    WHAT is your name?    WHAT is your insurance coverage?    WHICH dr are you seeing today?

Mom:   okay, actually, you are referencing three different Holy Grail characters…”none shall pass” was the black knight

Bug:    huh?    oh right

Mom:    with the flesh wound

Bug:    yes that’s one

Mom:    and the bridge keeper asked the 3 questions

Bug:    yes that’s two

Mom:    troll of a guy    and then Tim the Enchanter

Bug:    oh with the holy hand grenade?    crap    it’s been a long time

Mom:    yeah, I know…

Bug:    I’m rusty on my python knowledge

Mom:    and it’s a little sad that I was so quick to catch that

Bug:    okay, I’m the troll guy;     I’d be disappointed if you hadn’t

Mom:    so, do you really say “answer me these questions three?”

Bug:    no, but I do ask those questions more or less;    I could

Mom:    LOL;     I think I’d pay to see that

Bug:    I will probably be that guy for halloween
