What's grosser than gross?

It's when you are cleaning out the pantry and you hear a mouse trap go off in the living room and you go over to throw the carcass away and you see it still twitching in the trap and you wonder briefly if there is some way to end his suffering sooner while looking away and swallowing hard while your heart beats heavy and then going to pick up the trap and when you move it fresh blood oozes out on the hearth and you are so grossed out you actually open PAPER towels to pick it up (instead of fabric that you are sure you'd have to burn afterwards) and throw the whole thing away, trap and all. (And then wonder what to use to clean up the blood.)
