I just got back from PriceChopper, where I bought the following:


  • Two (2) sets of mousetraps (of two different kinds)

  • Two (2) sympathy cards

  • One (1) tuna roll



I think that everyone would agree that this is a strange assortment of items. *I* know why I bought them, but you don't. I challenge you, readers and friends, to come up with a coherent story behind my buying all of these. Winner gets, I dunno, a cookie or something.

Obviously, the tuna roll is the bait for the mouse traps. And the sympathy cards are for the loved ones of the soon-to-be-dearly departed mice.

Not nearly as bad as the time I bought the following at wally world:

1) kneepads
2) 100 feet of rope
3) a plunger
4) vaseline

The clerk gave me some seriously bad looks.

You were housesitting at your friend's house and he has two mice. However, they got loose inside the house and rather than them die and make the apartment all stinky, you decided to set traps and kill them. You bought two sympathy cards for each of the mice. The tuna rolls? Everyone needs a lunch.

This is not nearly as bad as my last visit to the local grocery store - 24 large canoli, three pints of strawberrys, one bottle palligrino water, 2 tubs of rainbow shorbet, a bunch of roses and worchester sauce.

I assume the mousetraps are to punish me for not returning your Myst V yet. I will. Really.

As for the sympathy cards, two people you know are each getting married. I would have also guessed having a baby, but you said nothing about having purcahsed coat hangers.

As for the tuna roll, everyone gets hungry.

You have two cats, but they are doing a bad job at catching the mice that are loose in your apartment. As a result, you bought some mousetraps to take care of the mice. You bought the sympathy cards because you fear you're going to hurt your cats' feelings by not allowing them to do what nature seems to dictate is their job. You're also concerned that they will hurt themselves on the mouse traps, so you're hoping to distract them with some tuna so that you can cordon them off before you set the traps for the mice.

You have a very peculiar aunt and uncle. Both of them are extremely wealthy, yet extremely faint of heart. The smallest fright will do them in. Since you realize the cost of the Playstation 3 is going to be astronomical, you have concocted a plan to earn your share of their inheritance TODAY.

Both of them love tuna. Absolutely are addicted to it. So you carefully place the tuna roll on their kitchen table, while placing the sticky mouse traps ALONG with the snapping traps upon the seats of the chair. Since you can't know where they will sit, you have to use all the mousetraps in the set.

The plan will go off with only one hitch. You don't know whether it will be your aunt or uncle who sits down, is startled by the ass-snapping-trap and so you have prepared both a "I'm sorry for your loss, Aunt" and a "I'm sorry for your loss, Uncle" cards that will arrive BEFORE the other relatives to ensure they do not forget you during the reading of the will.

OK, two kinds of mousetrap means two rooms in your place are infested, and you have to trap in both.
The cards .. I was gonna do the "friends getting married" gag but someone beat me to it.
I have no idea about the tuna. But I'm guessing you were kinda peckish at the time. Is maki halal?
