Mice in the Basement
I’m currently working on finishing my basement and a part of finishing it is cleaning out what is unneeded. Well this weekend I began taking down the old ceiling tiles and lo and behold I find this rather sad representation of what used to be a mouse. At first I was a little disgusted and upset that at some point in time there were rodents living in my house. After the initial shock though I actually felt a bit saddened by the fact that it was just a dried husk of what it used to be. It reminded me of one of my favorite Calvin & Hobbes comics which you can find here.
We’ll all be in this sad state sometime in the future. Dried and forgotten until some poor sap comes digging up our corpse to make room for a new loft or skyscraper. Lets just hope that we’ll still be in someone’s memory after we are physically long gone.
