Other Cool Things
Last night I stepped into my bathroom to take a pee.
As I finished this vital task, I stepped away.
Then a bit of movement caught my eye.
The room was dark, only lighted from the adjacent room.
I stared at the wall. What was that?
High up on the wall is the toilet tissue holder. It’s high up to keep it from the cats, who like nothing more than to shred tissue. Well, there was something really odd about the holder. In the semi-darkness my eyes just could not process what I was looking it. My mind could not make sense of the information it was receiving.
What was that?
So I turned on the light.
And jumped back several feet.
HOW did this get into the house?
HOW long at it been in the house?
HOW had it escaped the clutches of all my cats?
HOW did I get it out of the house?
I just stared. Neither of us moved. I think the poor dear was as startled as I was.
Grabbing a big towel, I gently covered over its head end, and managed to get it inside an empty plastic storage box. I quickly put the lid on.
Five minutes later, in a big field adjacent to my house, I open the lid and the unexpected visitor slithered out into the dark night.
The moral of the story? Never pee without first checking everything out.
