The Demon-Mouse in my bedroom
Yesterday my pastor preached a sermon on the Kingdoms of Light and Darkness, exegeting Mark 5. In this passage Jesus encounters the man Legion who could not be trapped or bound by any mortal power––and then casts the demons out, whence they went into pigs. After the service, I stayed in New York all day to eat lunch with friends, watch Batman, and attend a bonfire at one of their houses. After an altercation with the Corning Fire Department––the entire Corning fire department––I decided to head back across the state line early and catch up on some things at home. Little did I know that my peaceful night was about to be haunted by an apparently demon possessed mouse. My battle against the forces of evil involved four mouse traps and lasted until two in the morning. While I will refrain from describing the battle for much the same reasons that C. S. Lewis refused to publish a sequel to The Screwtape Letters, one chapter of the cosmic struggle that took place in my closet last night is chronicled below in this series of hidden-camera photographs.
