Burgler Bananas

Sometime between 3am and 4am, October 5th, 2009:

Married couple sleeping again after recent visit from itchy four-year old.

Suddenly, very LOUD crashing sound from downstairs, including what sounds like glass breaking.

Younger, prettier spouse goes from deep sleep to battle-ready mode in less than two seconds, complete with war cry:

"What in the *#@& was that?"

Couple walks to the top of the stairs to hear what sounds like a plate slowly spinning around on the kitchen floor. They go to investigate.

Earlier that day, younger, prettier spouse had hung bananas on a hook that was part of a candle holder. The forces of the universe had finally voted (at 3:20am? Don't you guys have anything better to work on?) and gravity prevailed.

Another burglary thwarted...

  9. I know what it's like to be scared "out of your mind" in the middle of a peaceful sleep. I don't know how many times I was rudely awakened by fighting (probably mating) cats right next to my window. That'll scare the Sweet Sister Francis right out of ya! I probably said a choice word or two in a moment like that. I understand Ging.
