The Monster

by crobertson

When night approaches, the monster awakes.

It travels throughout households terrorizing people in their sleep.

It prays on the sick.  Every night for the past few months (aka…this horrible winter) the monster has prayed on my husband, Chris.  We’ve tried all the tricks of the trade to scare off this monster.  Nothing has worked.

Every night I try and go to bed earlier than Chris so that the monster doesn’t awake me.  Every night it does.

Starting out quietly…zzz.  zzzZ   zzZZ  zZZZ ZZZZ  ZZZZZZZZ!   “Ahhhh!”  My elbow jabs Chris.  “Turn over your snoring soooo loud!”
