You should probably also put the cursor back where it was before you're

function pixelColor x,y
   put the screenMouseLoc into tOldLoc
   put the topLeft of this stack into theLoc
   set the screenMouseLoc  to (item 1 of theLoc + x,item 2 of theLoc + y)
   put the mouseColor into tVal
   set the screenMouseLoc to tOldLoc
   return tVal
end pixelColor
