Raising Caine in the Schoolyard

This is by Charlotte Herzele [herzele@mail.utexas.edu]. Bravo.

A gang of micelets are playing in the school yard. They are choosing up sides to play kickball. One mousie never gets chosen. I mean, he never gets picked. Of course, the teacher notices. She observes but she can’t put her finger on the problem. She finally decides to intervene. She demands to know why he never gets chosen (to play in any reindeer games).

The mice are reluctant, but finally one speaks up. “Sigh, Doormouse Drools.”
