The Game Or The Play By Agatha Christie?

I havent read or seen a production of The Mousetrap but i have played the game which, i believe, was based on the play...right? Totally...

Today is like that plastic mousetrap. Everything is hinging on the ball dropping. Nothing else is happening. Nothing can happen unless that freakin ball falls. all the little chutes and ladders are just waiting there...

So here i sit. Dangling like that stupid cage...waiting to fall on the plastic mouse. Waiting for phone calls and clarification and the national archives and the printers and the photos. In bank lines and at the post office i stand...waiting to spring into action. Spring isnt right....plop is more appropriate i suppose.

"plop plop fizz fizz" says the bird
