Let me tell you it was one hell of a night/very early morning!
Berkley had me up at 1:30am. He still has diarrhea. He is running all around camp looking for a place to go. I keep an eye on him because there are bears in the area. I know he won’t go far, but I don’t want to take a chance. All of a sudden I have to pee…bad, but don’t want to leave Berkley unattended. I am only wearing a t-shirt, no underwear and it is freezing out. Berkley appears to be looking for a second place to go. This may take awhile. So I step outside so I can continue to watch him. I pee in the grass standing up like a man. I pray the people in the camp next to me don’t see me. I just couldn’t hold it any longer. When he is done we go back to bed. I snuggle in and go right back to sleep. At 3:30am I think I hear the little pitter patter of tiny feet. I continue to listen. I think I have a mouse again. A little while later I hear quite a bit of noise coming from my big storage drawer. I get up turn on the lights and open the drawer. SHIT! Imagine my shock when I actually see the thing. It looks pretty big. It is scurrying around looking for a way out. I’m just standing there watching it wondering what the hell to do. I’m not about to try and catch it. Then the thing runs over my frying pan. MOTHER FUCKER! So I do what any crazy pissed off woman would do. I pick up the frying pan and yield it like the ultimate weapon. I’m watching it, waiting for my moment to strike. WHACK! Shit, I miss. WHACK! Oh shit! I think I hit it. It falls into one of the bins. All I can see is one foot and part of the tail. It’s not moving. I just stare at it. Now what do I do?!? Shit! It just moved! I quickly throw the frying pan over the bin and pick it up and put it outside. Here I go again. Outside in just a t-shirt with no underwear on. The neighbors outta love me. I grab the frying pan again. Every woman has got to have one of these! I give the bin another whack with the frying pan. The mouse hops out next to the bin. I give the bin a shove. The mouse runs off in the grass toward the trees. Shit! What if it comes back? Should I had whacked it again? Wow that’s a helluva lot of excitement for that early in the morning. I go back in and proceed to clean out the drawer and wash everything. I wonder if a mouse had gotten into Berkly’s food bowl and that is why he has diarrhea so bad. I will be washing those regularly from now on.
I just made eggs in my frying pan/weapon. Today’s breakfast is 2 rice cakes topped with avocado and egg.
