Was there a special gift or toy you wanted as a child but never received? What was it? — Daily Prompt
I’m sure a toy or two escaped my eager hands as a child…that was a long time ago, though, and I’ve moved on. There are toys I’d like to have now that are more pressing, and I don’t intend to let those slip through my fingers.
In my case, it was a mouse. I discovered the dead mouse lying there, within the wall structure, waiting to be taken to the rodent cemetary for a decent burial. He had been there long enough so I deduced that haste was no longer important to him. It was for me, because I didn’t want him lying around any longer, so I simply turned on the Wet/Dry Vac and whisked him away.
