I opened the door wide, already ajar. I almost didn't see Junior, alias Boo, the Bug, Buggar, or whatever else comes up at the time, who was way back in the far corner, past the toaster, mixer, mini food processor, roasting pans, and mini tool kit, curled up among a stack of empty egg cartons. I was saving them for my friends who raise chickens. The noise I heard, a kind of squeaky sound, suddenly made sense as I watched her snuggle up to one of the styrofoam cartons.
So much for the neatly stacked, bagged egg cartons. At least I don't have to deal with a dead mouse.
And once discovered, out she came. She'll probably have to find a new hiding place, since this one has been found!
