It was so quiet you could hear a mouse dropPosted: May 27, 2013
This is a mad mixture of “so quiet you could hear a pin drop” and “quiet as a mouse”, but the speaker must have had “mouse droppings” on his mind as well. My guess is that when a mouse does crap it’s pretty quiet, but that’s only a guess. Really. Props to Marianne Julian for hearing this malaphor.
