It's true. I used to hate those rodents with the wiggly whiskers and the long tail who could, if they bit me, give me rabies. While everyone else adored the Disney animated feature, "Ratatouille," I was repelled by it. I mean, who cares that Remy (the hero) is the most talented chef in Paree? I have no interest in having either a rat or mouse (probably a sous-chef) get their little whiskers in my quiche.
But I'm reevaluating my thinking.
