A little known fact about me, something very few people know, especially in blog world, is...
I used to breed mice.
Yep. Like the furry little rodents.
In high school I took Agricultural Science, and needed a project. Not living on a farm, I was somewhat limited in my choices. So breeding mice it was.
I started with a black & white male named "Mickey", and a brown female named "Minnie".
I bred them for color combinations, and sold the litters to local pet stores.
And then after a few years and being done breeding them, I just kept a few as pets.
And then in college, I decided I wanted one again. So I got another mouse.
Their lifespan is only 3-4 years, and that's if they don't get sick or anything, so you tend to go thru a lot of them over time.
They actually make great pets, although if not handled regularly they can get a little bite-y.
Mickey was so tame I'd let him wander around my bedroom, and he would come when I called him. Most of them I would get out and let them climb on me as I went about my daily business at home, read a book, did homework, watched TV, whatever
Not like all of them at once or anything. Just one or two at a time. As much as I like mice, all of them at once is a little... weird. And hard to manage.
I still have a soft spot for all things mousey, and cringe a little when Tucker does his job in ridding our house of the vermin.
See, I even just cringed a little just calling them "vermin".
So, there ya go. Little known fact about Jodi.
