|Building a Better Mousetrap|
Sometime in 2002 I had a mouse rooting around the house and set about building a live trap using
LEGO to catch it. It sort of worked. The mouse triggered it once but managed to escape.
It then decided to leave of it's own accord before I had a chance to improve the design.
So when another mouse moved in towards the end of 2006 it was with a great deal of excitement
that I went about building a better mousetrap. Not more than
half an hour after setting it up in my kitchen, with nothing more than some old bread as bait,
did I hear the door snap shut and ran downstairs to find
my first catch.
Of course it turned out there were two of the little guys running around. I caught
the other one a couple of nights later.
Both mice were released unharmed in a not so nearby wooded area.
