I had a bad night a bit ago, and sat in our living room.
I just kept the lights off, and sat on the couch, hoping I could go back to sleep. But, then, I started listening.
tcktcktcktcktck... Hmmm. Oh, that's the timer for the lights.
Muuuhhhh. Well, one of the cows must be near our fence again.
Grumble, thump. KaTHUMP. ??? Ah, that was Rudee, flopping over in his doghouse.
Prrt? Thump. Thip, thip, thip, thip, prrrrrrrt???
Hello, Ding, yes, I am awake, sit here, if you'd like.
Soft rustles as she makes herself comfortable. I hear Husband mumble slightly in his sleep.
The darkness continues. I hear an owl. Then a car go by.
I was amazed at how much noise there is in a quiet room...
Finally, sleepiness starts to overtake me, and I go back to bed, and lie down.
Really, Ding? Sleeping is the norm for humans, this time of night. Thank you, but I don't want a toy mouse in my ear...
