Irrefutable proof our resident mice aren't long for the world
They aren't that smaaaaat.
They can, however, move things around. The many-times gnawed cob prong was discovered under the kitchen sink where it had been relocated from the utencil drawer (I know: Eeeeewwww).
So I conclude if our mice were children we'd likely be saving for Andover Trucking School instead of Harvard.
