Do you like weasels? Maybe you do, but do you live with them?

Let me first say that a weasel is not a rodent. Rodents have teeth that keep growing. Weasels' teeth stop growing. Weasels actually eat rodents.

Dogs don't really get along with weasels. Do you know why? Because weasels are annoying.

I live with two annoying weasels. One rubs toothpaste all over her face and snaps crayons in two.

The other is incessantly performing show and tell.

Does she think I care about her dumb toy? I left pre-school a long time ago, and not a moment too soon.

We all have to live with our roommates' irritating habits, isn't that true? But some roommates are worse than others.

The Harriet and Mickey Chronicle is sponsoring a contest for our vast readership. Send us your annoying roommate stories, and if you have the most annoying roommate, you'll win a weasel-filled weekend. Yes! We'll ship our weasels to you, free-of-charge, for one full weekend (Friday night included) and when they leave (Sunday at midnight) you'll never complain about your roommate again.

Send your entry to Please put "annoying roommate" in the subject line.

As always we remain,
your devoted,
Harriet and Mickey
