Things that go bump in the night
There are things that go bump in the night, creepy crawly things, like the monsters under the bed, or the ones in the closet or behind the shower curtain. Since Mom and Dad have us, we have chased all those monsters away, which means that we have to take over the bumps in the night. And Maggie and Huggy Bear were doing that overtime last night. Maggie discovered some tissue paper that didn't get put away and, while it would have made a fine bed if she ever laid down on it, she was content to crinkle it instead. That was 1:21 last night. Then it was the spring-back lid on Mom's bathroom trashcan -- Maggie again, pushing her paw into the lid and making it clap. You'd think she would have learned from a month or so ago when her paw got caught. So Dad put that in the closet. Then it was Huggy Bear's turn, first hunting a dime, then a pen, then finally finding a straw in Mom's trashcan and happily trotting off with it. At that point, I think Mom and Dad were considering inviting the creepy crawlies back.
