Have you ever woke up in the middle of the night, but your not REALLY awake?  I think I'm dreaming, as I walk down the hallway, enter the bathroom, and turn on the light.   Approaching the commode,  I notice something...different.....floating in the sparkling water.  As I took a closer look, (like..WHY did I do that!)...I noticed something "unusual" about this particular floating object...... IT HAD  A TAIL!

I know you're asking...ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!   No...I'm not kidding.   There....floating in the still water of the toilet, was a 'very still...and dead...' mouse.  Seriously?  Seriously...SERIOUSLY!!!!   I could have, should have, wanted to...scream.  I didn't.  I decided to pretend that this really was a dream...more like a really bad dream...

Nope...No dream.  Although I was totally freaked out by the whole thing...I managed to flush the poor dead thing down the toilet.  In reality, the nightmare belonged to the mouse. Advice:  Always turn the lights on when you go to the bathroom.  Yikes....Talk about things crawling out of the toilet!!!!
