I was pretty young when this happened, grade school, I think.
We had gone to bed, and it was pretty late, I know I'd been asleep for a while. Something woke me. Next thing I know, Mom was sounding upset, and I heard noises in the front room.
I got up, and started to go into the hallway to the front room.
Mom bellowed, "Get back in your room, and close the door!"
I did, but not before I got a glimpse of Dad's backside, naked, running around with the vacuum cleaner, randomly swatting the air. No clue what was going on, and I was trying hard not to giggle.
As it turned out, we had a bat in the house, and Dad was using the vacuum to chase it down. I heard thumps, some swearing, clanks, then a "swwwONK" noise from the vacuum. Then, finally, quiet.
Dad said, "It's still alive, I'll go take it outside."
Mom's reply, "PUT SOME UNDERWEAR ON FIRST!"
Yeah, I lost the giggle battle at that point...
Our family seems to have a problem with males and bats. My Grandpa was painting his house, and was leaning out to paint the trim, when something came out at him. His first reaction was to swat at it. Well, he looked up, and saw a Hunter Green bat flying away...
That animal, I must say, isn't one I have dealt with overmuch. But I must say, it has made for some funny stories in our family...
