A Mischief of Mice who lost their bottle

What are you going on about Jerry? Swallowed a thesaurus again?

No dear reader, I have not but I thought the title was apt for this mouse tail (sic) ..hee hee.

No, I am actually rather miffed, I was under orders tonight to clear up my running kit from the understairs cupboard as I was not using it at the moment and to get it bagged up and if dirty put in the wash basket.

Going to my sports bag, I pulled out my tri-band with a race number still attached when I saw a pile of red chaff, touching them I found they were rubber and then it dawned on me, they were the remnants of the nipples of my North Face 500 ml bottles. Fearing the worst, I pulled the bottles out of the bag and there we had, two completely ruined water bottles, the nipples nibbled down to the plastic. If you click on the picture on the left you will just be able to make out the ruined tops. Thankfully the weather is cool and I am off running for a little while.

All I can say is that every cloud has a silver lining, what luck I found them now and not the night before a race.

Off now to find a mouse trap, that cat of ours is useless.
