Midnight Munchie Monster

31 May

Sometimes in the middle of the night, it hits you. It starts low in your belly and works its way up until it starts talking to you. The Midnight Munchie Monster HITS you just like that. It happens to all of us right out of the blue.

I know it’s hit mom in the middle of the night. I’ve heard her rumbling around in the kitchen digging for something – anything – quick to tame the monster. Then, once it’s tamed, it goes away just like that at a snap of a finger. Such a relief!

Well last night, it happened to me. I thought I was being possessed for a moment. My tummy was making sounds that I’ve never heard of before. It was almost like the scene from Little Shop of Horrors … “Feed me Seymour!

I wondered around the room for a bit tap dancing on my floor pacing back and forth. Then I would go to my door and kind of snort around hoping mom would be awake to come help me. That didn’t work so I started calling for her by making different sounds in my throat.

She finally heard me and came to my rescue. When she opened my bedroom door, I made a beeline to the kitchen area to the big magical box where the humans keep all of the wonderful food. Mom came into the kitchen laughing asking me if the Midnight Munchie Monster got to me. I was like I don’t know what it is called but get rid of it now please look to her. Mom opened the magical food box and got me an apple. She couldn’t slice that thing up fast enough!

She finally gave it to me and it was like heaven! I could finally hear the Midnight Munchie Monster waving good bye and thanks for the food little man. That was a close call! It’s never hit me like that before. And you know what. I don’t want it to hit me again like that! From now on, mom is going to have to make sure I get a bigger bedtime snack to keep the monsters away!

Have you ever been visited by the Midnight Munchie Monster? Please share. Tell me it doesn’t only visit the Hotel Thompson. It has to make other house calls besides ours.

XOXO – Bacon

    You would fit in well here Bacon. I always keep apples in my fridge for just this type of thing. He visits here too!

    Hmm, Midnight Munchie Monster visits here frequently. I never had a name for it before but I’ve seen it far too many times. It never comes for me but always for hubby. Even if I manage to sleep through it’s attack, by morning, I know it’s been. That’s because it appears to have a dislike for kitchens and makes an utter mess of them, something like a world war having occurred in there. Maybe you could explain to me why hubby is unable to take care of Midnight Munchie Monster without letting a bomb go off in the kitchen.

      mmm that is a mystery. mom took care of my midnight munchie monster so there wasn’t any evidence left in the kitchen. But mommy says she understands about your human – her human does it as well. “Five seconds in the kitchen unchapperoned and everything is in disarray.” That’s what I hear mom saying all of the time to dad – snorts.

      I had not until last night. It was unreal! I don’t think I want it to hit me again. Mom is just going to have to give me a bigger bedtime snack. That monster is out of this world! XOXO – Bacon

    Mom gives me and my kitty brother a snack at around 11pm for the sole reason of staving off the midnight munchie monster! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

      Mom usually gives me a bedtime snack but I think last night it was too early. That monster is not playing. I’ve never heard such a rumble in my belly before. It was making all kinds of sounds. XOXO – Bacon

    My Dad is possessed by the Midnight Munchie Monster. It forces him to make stirred eggs at 11:30 p.m. and it prohibits to remove all the leftovers and the mess of the snack-attack. What an evil beast! I always get a small toothbrush bone before I sleep, so I’m scure against attacks of the monster. Think my dad should eat such a bone tonight too …

      snorts. Mom is more possessed by the MMM more so than dad. But she eats ‘neat’ stuff like marshmallows, my slices of apples and my carrotts. It’s okay though – she shares with me so I can share my stash with her, right? Sometimes she comes in and checks on me in the middle of the night and gives me a little snack of something if she is up. She’s cool like that. XOXO – Bacon

    That Midnight Munchie Monster must be so busy at the Hotel Thompson that he doesn’t have time to visit me. Once I close my eyes for the night, I am out cold . . . and I’m not too excited about an early breakfast either. I’m much more of a brunch-type girl. 🙂 Have a fabulous weekend!

      Well, does the sleep fairy visit your place often? If so, mom says send him our way. She has problems with that. He skips the Hotel Thompson all of the time. You have a fantastic weekend to my sweet friend! XOXO – Bacon

      snorticles. Mouse Girl at times will roam the halls at the Hotel Thompson and serenade everyone when they are asleep. She often wakes dad up from a dead sleep. XOXO – Bacon


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
