Simple Sunday – Mouse Trap and Kenny Loggins

The boys busted out the game Mouse Trap the other night. 


Basically you spin, move your mouse to the color you spun, and hope you do not land on the two squares that the trap hangs above.


It lacked the charm, challenge, and excitement that I had remembered from when I was a kid.

It may have been the margarita(s) I had with dinner, but I started referring to the two squares that were reachable by the trap as the danger zone.  This led Husband to ask Alexa (our Amazon Echo) to play “Danger Zone”.

That led to this.


In case you can’t tell, we are performing an amazing duet rendition of “Danger Zone”.

Feeling old and uncool, I wanted to mock good old Kenny, but then Husband queued up “Footloose”. 

It was awesome and I sang along. 

Then “Return to Pooh Corner” came on – I may have teared up a little bit – and I could mock no more.

  1. Great post! I played Mousetrap all the time when I was in the 8 to 10 year old range. I think it was directly responsible for my becoming an engineer later in life.

      Ha! Well, you just never know. My favorite games growing up were Trouble and Hungry Hungry Hippos and I ended up being a Microbiologist and then an elementary school teacher. Not sure how all that connects…
      Glad you stopped by and left a comment.

  2. Wow. Mousetrap! Haven’t seen or heard of that one in quite a while. I could sing along to the entire Footloose soundtrack. Loved that one.
