The Boogie Man


Now it has happened twice. I am getting fed up with whatever it is. I have been awaken out of a sound sleep in the wee hours of the morning by a strange noisy. The sound wakes me and with my eyes still closed I can still hear what sounds like somebody paddy footing around in my bedroom. It positively scares the pee wadden out of me.

I am so scared I’m afraid to move. The logical side of my brain starts talking to me. It says, " There is no way anybody can get in this house with all the doors, not only locked, but those prop things under each doorknob. And then the chicken side of my brain says, "Maybe they’ve been hiding under the bed or in a closet or behind the shower curtain.
My bladder finally got in on the conversation and asked, "Are you going to go empty me or wait until it’s too late?"

My logical side of the brain tried to rationalize the situation. There is a concrete ledge that runs along the side of house. It’s about 8 or 9 inches wide and is just below the windows. This is below my bedroom window and I am thinking a cat may get on it and try to get the screen open or something. The noisy is on that side of the room. I have very good locks and screens on the windows. I have seen cats on the ledge before so for the time being I am going to believe the mystery guest was somebody’s cat.
