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.

Another instant message conversation (March 2014):

Bug: sup
Mom: not much
Mom: sup witchoo, mouse wrangler?
Bug: oh ya know
Bug: eating breakfast in my office
Bug: cause I had to shave my legs.
Mom: LOL
Mom: your logic is wonderfully understandable
Mom: which is both worrisome and magical at the same time!
Bug: why worrisome?
Bug: shaving my legs took longer than a normal shower
Bug: hence not enough time to enjoy breakfast at home
Bug: so I threw some oatmeal in a bowl, heated it up at work and bam, breakfast.
Mom: no no…the worrisome part is on me…that I understand your logic perfectly

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

He (sitting on edge of bed looking at prescription meds):  What will happen if I don’t have my meds during the zombie apocalypse?

She (walking through bedroom, not missing a beat):  I will miss you.

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 the car this past weekend (March 24, 2012) after talking about storms and tornadoes:

Mom:  So, where do you and Jon go during a tornado warning since you don’t have a basement?

Bug: …

Mom:  Oh, never mind…you’re in the street with a camera watching the tornado bear down on you, that’s right.  That was a stupid question.  Seriously…I can’t believe I asked you that.

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?!?”
