Mouse: “Why did you guys want to talk to me out here instead of calling a meeting in the conference room?”
Lulu: “We’re concerned that it may become overrun by replicating toupees. Also, we don’t know how to use the calendar program to reserve time in the conference room.”
Mouse: “Well if you ever attended any of my in-services, then you would learn how to … wait, what was that about toupees?”
Charlee: “You remember that thing Vermin was holding in the conference room? Versions of it are popping up all over the house now. You blink and there’s another one.”
Mouse: “Hmm … Sounds like we need to call Vermin out here and ask her where she got it, then.”
Charlee: “She’s not here right now. She’s working her shift at the ninja hedgehog mealworm vats.”
Norman #1: “There seem to be more furs than usual in the mealworm gruel. Can’t you make her wear a hairnet?”
Norman #2: “I tried but she hissed at me and called me nasty, and when I said I was going to report her to VR she just fell right over. I thought she was dead, but she got better.”
Back in the yard …
Mouse: “Well, all right, can one of you go in and get me a sample toupee so that I can examine it?”
Charlee: “Do we have to? What if they’re dangerous?”
Mouse: “What makes you think they’re dangerous? Have they threatened you?”
Lulu: “Well they mostly just sit there. But they could just be biding their time until they attack.”
Chaplin: “One weird toupee coming up. I also caught a big lizard if anyone wants to help me play with it.”
Charlee: “I could catch a lizard if I wanted to.”

Ooooo…we can’t wait to hear what Mouse says!!!
Rosy and the Gang
PeeEss….We would love to play with a lizard!!!!
Maybe the mouse needs a new toupee!
Oh! Lizard catching! Kozmo sometimes has mouse safaris here, you could have Lizard and Toupee catching safaris! I’d pay in Temptations….
Being swarmed by replicating toupees would make for one hellish nightmare!
Definitely need a hairnet and masks. 🙂
