My Wish List Knows No Bounds
My Wish List Knows No Bounds

OK, Mom.  (And anyone else who cares to put me on their gift list).  Here’s another on for the list.  While I’m not a chess player exactly (I’ve played before, I’m just not very good at it) I kind of want this set.

It’s a taxidermy mouse chess set.  Yep.  Formerly live mice, stuffed and dressed as chess pieces.  It’s from Etsy seller TheCurious13.

Say what you want, but there’s some talent going into this thing:

mice knights king and queen mice

Would it creep me out?  Yep.  Do I still want it?  Kind of.

Unfortunately, this item has already been snapped up by someone else’s Mom who apparently loves them more than my Mom loves me.  Unless it was you who bought it Mom, then You’re the best.  (Love you!)
