Big Mickey is watching you

I’ve never been scared of mice, but after an encounter with this fifty cent ride-on Mickey, I’m rethinking my position:

    My parents gave me a blow-up Mickey Mouse as a Christmas gift when I was about 3. I immediately dreamed that it grew to about 7 feet tall and came after me. I was finished with it as a toy after that.
