Mouse is small rodent known as scary and cautious. They live in burrow, cockloft and anywhere dark and safe. They walk out at night to search food. Grownups regard them as one of the source of some bad diseases such as plague, rat bite fever and other infections. However, children prefer regarding them as cute little creatures to bad ones because they've never suffered the dark age of plague. They get to know these animals from TV, movie and pets shop where selling harmless relatives to rat.
Mouse is endowed with smart, flexible, cute and humorous, all the good traits by cartoon makers. But they missed one trait which is hardly thought from such a little and scary rodent. That is pugnacious!
I had known it when I traveled to Manila Philippines for a subway project. One day, I went to one of the station intending to get some data. When I moved the mouse, the cursor was like frozen. I was not surprised at that time because it had occurred many times due to the lack of power of USB port. What I would do is simply switch to another USB port. But I suddenly found that there was not even a cable connected to the mouse. I had the mouse close to my eyes and was astonished to find there were some bite marks on the plastic shell of mouse. What on earth happened to this mouse?
My local partner, Jojo, seemed already used to this and told me it was bitten by a mouse. And obviously that mouse was in blue mood so it fought against this one without having had identified if it was a real one.
Yesterday, I sent a new version to Jojo and asked him to test in workshop. He replied that unfortunately, he couldn't do it because some problem happened with the cable between equipments and computer due to rodent bite!!
Well, believe or not, however small an animal is, pugnacity is its nature. Mouse is not able to fight with human or even a cat. But how about also a mouse or an ant?
