Untold Horrors from Beyond


but much scarier
So, my wife is in Florida, moving cow nose rays to MarineLand. This means that I am sleeping alone. There are pros and cons to this scenario. On the plus side, if my arm flops on to the other side of the bed, there are no problems. I can watch TV as late as I want. There is no victim when funky smells are created. The downsides are obvious. I’m lonely, and there’s no one to laugh at when those funky smells make their way to other side of the bed.

Startled, I jumped out of bed and searched for my would-be assassin who had scampered under the bed. The search was fruitless. So I decide that the best course of action was to move to the guest bedroom. I moved my pillows, sheet, and box fan as well as cranked up the alarm in the master bedroom before I realized that there was probably not a giant praying mantis in my bed. Even if it were there, it could not have appeared as bright-green with the lights out.


I had already moved and the guest bed is pretty comfy.
