03 March 2004

godote: so.. hows life
thalia: life is so so
thalia: dad isn’t doing well
thalia: he has been going in and out of the hospital
godote: :(
thalia: and we had a rat running around in the bathroom
godote: big or small?
thalia: we just caught him in the toilet an hour ago.
thalia: he was swimming in there.
godote: what? swimming?
thalia: freaked my dad out, though.
godote: that’s jerry
godote: so you want to get rid the mouse arent u?
godote: that mous
thalia: naah, dad said it was mickey.
godote: e
godote: ah I left the ‘e’
thalia: we just killed him
thalia: one of the guys here squeezed him to death.
godote: poor mice
thalia: what a horrible death.
thalia: i think he just squeezed another one just now.
thalia: i heard the noise.
thalia: *splat*
godote: yuck
thalia: haha, i know, right?
godote: it’s small, isn’t it?
thalia: it’s small enough to swim in the toilet bowl.

note: in Indonesian, there is only one word for rat and mouse. so, in this conversation, they’re kinda interchangable…

Stumbled upon your site. Looking great! =)
Squeezing a “tikus” (that’s the word you used, right?) to death? Goodness. o_O;; When I was still living in Indo, rats weren’t much of a problem. Oh well. Again, good job done here. =)

that reminds me, the day I heard the loudest scream in my life was the day when my mum found a swimming rat in our bathroom (she has phobia with them). The water was half full so he couldn’t reach the top, just kinda stuck here. I was watching it and felt kinda amused, but the thing smelt bad. :)

Kalo kita2 bilang biasanya yang kecil dipanggil ‘clurut’ sih, keliatannya bhs Jawa yah?

ha! that’s the one that swam in our toilet too! the smelly little one (i call it “curut” ;) just missing the “L”). i guess it partly explains where the smell came from. eww.
