"Oh God! We have a mouse in the house!" I shrieked as I announced to my family. My son sitting on the couch was quick to pull his legs and cross them over. "Where! Where!" he inquired in an equally high-pitched scream.
"It's in the bedroom!"
I was now waiting restlessly for my husband to take some action. Instead, he continued to work on his laptop unperturbed of what I just announced!
I repeated it this time in a higher decibel.
He looked up with a sense of calm, "Relax! It's the door. It needs oiling at the hinges!"
