Wandering into the kitchen to get some caffeine, my slipper got stuck to something and, when I went to peel whatever it was off, I found that it was a glue trap. More precisely, it was a *giant* glue trap, made up of five glue traps stuck together. And it really did not want to give my slipper back. I finally gave up and went into the bathroom to wash my hands, which is when M. came into the kitchen and paused at the sight of a single slipper stuck to a giant glue trap in the middle of the kitchen floor. So I came back in and explained about how my slipper found the glue trap and M.--who also had no idea why there was a giant glue trap there to begin with--took pity on me and pried my slipper off it using a pair of pliers.

And now I am safely returned to the aerie hoping I don't meet up with that mouse.

I'm familiar with fly glue strips, which have too many times caught in my hair. Thanks for introducing me to the floor-level version. Not compatible with animals, I'd think. Or well, kinda a vermin smorgasbord for animals.

You realize you've just created the perfect intro to a horror version of Cinderella? I recently saw The Slipper and the Rose, a pretty bad 60s musical version, and then there's Sondheim's Into the Woods, in whose movie version the prince coats the steps of the palace with pitch.
But a glue trap trapping Cinderella? And giant spiders and rats? Sounds great to me!

It does in fact suggest a Rodent of Unusual Size.

(This post has been up for nine hours, how I am the first person to make this comment??)
