Hickory Dickory Dock
A mouse went into our laundry room, and caused some excitement in the house. We closed up all the windows and the doors, and put Rusty our cat in the room so that he could catch the mouse, and then we watched from the window what Rusty and the mouse were doing. Here's what Zara said while watching. "Kory, Kory, Dock, Mouse went up the clock." "Mouse climbed up hang clothes there!" (refering to the coat hanger) "Mouse climbed up the sky!" (referring to the mouse up on the curtain railing) Then when she saw Rusty chasing after the mouse, she said, "Wow, Rusty so angry. Catch the mouse like a monkey." (In the end, Rusty being fat and lazy, quit after a while. It was Daddy who smacked the mouse with a broom when he got back from work. Zara didn't see how ferocious Daddy was though, as she was asleep when Daddy murdered the mouse.) The following day, I asked her, "Where is the mouse now?" Zara : "Go up to the sky oh-ready (already)." (she last saw the mouse in the curtain railing) Me : "You want to go and catch the muose?" Zara : "Don't want." Me : "Why don't want?" Zara : "Becauzzzzzzzz (dragging the word while thinking what to say)... Zara scared."
