Things That go Bump in the Night

 Something very strange happened in the dark of the night.
 I suddenly woke out of a deep sleep to my big brave husband turning on the light and scurrying out of the bedroom pulling the door shut behind him.
 What caused such odd behavior was flying back and forth through our bedroom at breakneck speeds, a small black bat.
 I quickly pulled the covers over my head and peeked out to see the man of the house in nothing but his birthday suite peeking through the door and the bat whizzing by right above the bed.
 I pulled the covers over my head again.
 Making a rush decision I slinked over to the patio door and opened the screen, all along hoping that creature of the night wouldn't fly into my hair biting me and passing on a deathly bout of rabies.
 After several more frightening pass's back and forth the bat made a quick exit out the opened door.

  What has happened to my night in shining armour who would stop at nothing to save a damsel in distress?

That's funny!
Believe it or not I had the same thing happen to me years ago.
I think he was just a little confused, you know, being awakened so suddenly and all. tee hee

Oh my gosh! So funny! We had a bat and I'll never forget the image of Rocky in his skivy's with a tennis racket in his hand swinging madly in the dark trying to assalt the flying intruder!

Wow, that is awesome that you had the brains! ;) Lucky though that bats seem like they will run into you but that rarely happens, now the question is... how did it get into your bed room in the first place? LOL

Too funny! Didn't realize Willie had become such a chicken in his old age - LOL! We haven't had a bat in the house since we lived in Cody but they sure do make for exciting evenings!
