Picky Snake Will Not Get Dessert
Tooth, like the Pirate Princess, is apparently a picky eater. He has let the latest mouse live in his cage unmolested since Monday. I do not like this, Sam-I-Am. I cannot rescue this mouse, because Despereaux is a boy mouse, and will fight with any other boy mouse I put in his cage. Also, rescuing any more mice sets a bad precedent; I didn't want the pets we have, and don't want any more. So nameless boy mouse #2 must be dinner for Tooth no matter how long it takes. The problem is nameless boy mouse #2 is growing (I did have to feed him, lest he die of starvation) faster than Tooth, and I am wondering just how wide Tooth can unhinge his jaws to snarf up a mouse now rather larger than any hopper has a right to be. I wish Tooth would stop chasing his food and just eat it, because it is making his cage smell of mouse, and honestly, eau de serpent is better. I think I will go eat another gluten free pumpkin chocolate chip cookie, because I am not so picky.
