Every morning, I take Daniel to school. He goes to school in Edmonds, which is about 20 minutes north of our home (and about 40 minutes from Microsoft). It's an long-ish commute (7:30 to somewhere between 9:00 and 9:30) but it's worth it :).
So this morning, I'm driving up I-405 and I notice something moving near the windshield wipers in my car. This isn't unusual, leaves sometimes get caught there.
We got to our exit and pulled off the highway onto city streets.
And then I saw the head pop up from under the top of my hood. A little pointed nose sniffed the air and the mouse huddled down against the wind.
I pointed it out to Daniel and he indicated disbelief, until I pulled into his school and we popped the hood.
There he was, a field mouse sitting on top of the engine of my car. I guess he realized it was warm last night and decided to bunk down for the night.
I went to get a cup to remove him, but by the time I got back to the car, he had disappeared. I'm hoping he took the opportunity to run away, I'm sure I would.
Very wierd. This is the first time this has ever happened to me 🙂
