The word “mouse” brings up all different kinds of reactions depending on a person’s profession and emotional baggage. To say that a “mouse” means something different to a plumber than an IT technician is obvious. And, of course, there is the reaction some folks get when they actually see a mouse. The reaction that looks a bit too much like hysterics.
I am proud to say that mice don’t freak me out. Spiders? Centipedes? Most insects? Yeah, that’s the realm of freak-out for me. Which is great since I have mice. And I don’t mean in a cute little cage with one of those hanging water dispensers.
