  • Theodoric was harnessing horses that morning before he headed to the train station when a mouse found its way into his pant leg. 
  • As Theodoric entered the train the mouse remained in his pants, the woman sleeping in the car across from him did not seem to notice his entrance. 
  • Could you help me hail a cab as I find it hard being blind...
  • Blind!
  • Theodoric started to feel the rustling in his clothes and upon further investigation he realised it was a mouse. The more he moved to get it out the more the more the mouse scrambled and he began to twitch and flinch.

  • As an act of desperation he pulled up the carpet on the floor and hooked it up in front of him to make a makeshift dressing room, as he had never taken his socks off in front of a woman let alone his clothing. 
  • The carpet came unhooked just as the woman across from him woke up and she weirdly did not seem to have a reaction. After explaining that she was blind and needed help asking help for a cab, Theodoric let out a sigh of relief and managed to put his clothes back on. 
  • Theodoric helped her hail a cab and as she headed away he was glad that she did not see a thing.
