One of the "moments of our lives": In the dead of night we are awakened by a racket...... it's coming from
the bathroom in the hall..... Rob gets up first and gets a little closer.... hollers for me to come there..... so now we are both peeking around the corner of the bathroom... 'listening' .....scratch, scratch, scratch..... sounds like "some thing" is in the
piping under the sink..... oh my... hope nothing has gotten up under there and trying to get in the house! It is LOUD now.... really get'n with it! SCRATCHITY, SCRATCHITY, SCRATCH!! Rob says plug the sink so it can't get
up there.... I run for tin foil... wad it up and LEAN AROUND THE CORNER AND STUFF IT QUICKLY into the sink hole while Rob holds a long stick into the bathroom holding the cabinet shut just in case.... We are both scared to open the cabinet under the sink....
afraid it may be a squirrel, raccoon, snake, bird, rat? who knows! But it is SOMETHING strange...What ever it is will make us hurt our selves if it comes out of that door! HAS to be an animal under there! HOW are we going to get it OUT of from under the sink??
Rob says... "I have to open it and see" So I get a BAT! So that we can smash it or something! lol We have been on this middle of the night adventure long enough that we have awaken the younger boys... every one is in the hall awaiting this ANIMAL to dart out
of that cabinet any time! I am holding the bat! Rob has a big net that belongs to the boys.... not really big enough.. but if it's a small animal it will work! lol If it is a BIG one I have the BAT!!! LOL Rob said... "Now don't you hit ME with that thing!"
LOL I am brave... I am going in and turn on the light.... and we have to end this one hour steak out! The Scratching has now gotten CONSTANT! OK~ Light is now ON! And ...... over in the corner of the tinfoil plugged sink is a little plastic dog.... from a
McDonald's happy meal... yep... it's a wind up toy.... laying on it's side.... must have been really wound up because it's just a kicking on it's side up against the side of the sink! You know... one of those that you wind up and it walks.... well... he is
on his side so he can't walk but he can give a CONSTANT SCRATCH, SCRATCH, SCRATCH on the side of the sink!!!!! Well..... at least we can go back to bed now.... but it WANT QUIT! So Rob puts in the middle of the towels in the laundry basket..... lol Adventure
is over... and I am SOOOOO SLEEPY! :-) How was YOUR night? ;-)
