We have mice in our house. We would prefer that they weren’t here, but they don’t seem to care. Sometimes we set traps and when those traps are sprung, I pull on a pair of gloves to deal with the remains. I call those gloves ‘Rat Gloves’ – even though we have only ever caught mice with these traps (and it’s only a sporadic issue). The bottom line is, I sometimes use humor to deal with the wholesale pain of existence. It’s my go-to.
