Wherein I Compare Myself to a Mouse with a Really Big Cookie

I’ve been trying to write a post about the end of the gardening season for days, and for something that ended up being epically delicious, it’s actually turning out to be the most boring thing I’ve ever written. So, instead, thanks to Katy from The Turtle House, I give you this…

A mouse with a really big cookie.

There’s a reason why I just shared a video of a mouse with a really big cookie, and that’s because a couple of years ago when I was trying to get a 9′ piece of drywall on to a drywall jack by myself, I pretty much made the exact same video…

Proving a point gone wrong from kitliz on Vimeo.

Except my version did not end with me eating a bigass cookie. Dammit.

I’d like to say I’m older, wiser, and stronger now, but if you saw me try to haul 20 bales of hay up into the loft last week, you’d totally disagree. So. Here’s to working hard, and looking like a complete ass while you’re doing it.

Happy Monday.

    If you never look like an ass you are doing something wrong. It’s all part of the fun, right?

    That video is the reason I started reading your blog. :)

    Build a pulley system to move your bales? Work smarter not harder, plus pulleys are fun to play with.

    That silly little critter trying to lug that thing up was adorable. The mouse video was funny too.

        I thought the mouse video was fun, yours was cuter… and then McGrimus commented… and I rolled on the floor. Thanks, I needed this today!

    I showed the mouse video to my students today. I told them we can learn a lot from watching animals – like the meaning of the word determination!
