Elaine is unquestionably a mouse. I’ve determined she is feminine — misogyny alert — as a result of she appears to have female traits. She is darned cute and fairly resourceful, and most essential, she doesn’t appear to offer a crap about what folks assume. She could effectively have a full household of meece beneath the range, during which case she is each a feminist and a mother, as a result of she selflessly protects them — I’ve by no means seen one — and forages for meals for them at private danger. She is also fearless: She is going to boldly make noise scuffling via issues, realizing she is revealing herself and never caring. (If there’s a husband mouse, he in all probability spends his days watching porn and ingesting beer drippings.) Just lately, Elaine openly ran out from beneath the couch to attempt to discover some morsel of meals — I had left a jar of fig jam uncovered on the lounge flooring, so this was not a very insane notion. Then Elaine observed that Rachel was watching her, and didn’t care. Rachel didn’t care both; she opened a brand new window on her laptop; she was working and didn’t need any distraction. They’re ladies, dwelling collectively in a person’s world, and profitable. There are not any “eeks!” on this home.
