Mutant Mice Invade FBO!

The girl gave us quite the scare this morning!  M & I were in our office, waiting patiently for the girl to let us out so we could get to work….. when a GIANT MUTANT MOUSE threw open the office door!!! M & I were in a state of panic (that’s how all the man’s stuff got knocked off the deck…).  Well, M head-butted it (she slammed her head into the mutant mouse’s ankle) and as it was reeling back we escaped into the main office.

Well, just imagine our surprise when we discovered….. the girl had sprouted mouse ears!  M was just beside herself… meowing and carrying on about radiation and pollution…. I was trying to call our friends who fly the medical helicopters…. They could rescue us!

AND then….. the creepiest thing happened….. the girl yanked her ears right off her head!!  I think M may have fainted.  They were FAKE mouse ears!

The girl opened up her laptop and told us to Google “Halloween”.  Whew!  (We also Googled “mutant mice” when she wasn’t looking and quickly sent an email to the ARMY, just in case…..).

Halloween seems like a pretty cool holiday…. it’s all about candy!  Now that we know the girl isn’t really turning into a mutant mouse we’re pretty excited about the whole thing.  M & I have been running round the office and jumping out at anyone who comes in…. so far we haven’t gotten any candy, but it’s not even noon yet, so we’ll keep our paws crossed and just keep trying.

Trick or Treat – Smell our Paws – Give us Candy – Or Feel Our CLAWS!

The girl made some special cookies for anyone who came in Trick or Treating today…. another pumpkin recipe! (Originally found HERE)
