As I lay in bed at night sleeping, I have to think about the different sounds I hear coming from outside my bedroom window. Now that we are in the Summer months, it seems like everything is coming alive, especially at night. So there I was last night, tucked in and waiting for Mr. Sandman to visit. I listened intently.
I could hear grasshoppers. One I’ve nicknamed Sensei because he is so very loud and seems to hang out right near my window to the right every single night. It’s like he tells me goodnight.
I could hear kids laughing and yelling. Heck it’s almost 9pm – why are there kids still outside playing in the dark? They better be chasing lightening bugs and not chasing trouble.
I could hear the faint sounds of a radio from the people next door. Those neighbors are Asian so the music had a chime-chime affluence. It was soothing to me.
I could hear dogs barking – it must be that pesky little Chihuahua across the street hanging out with his posse and being bad again leaving nuggets on everyone’s front yard.
I could hear frogs. They sounded like enormous frogs with giant legs and deep guts. There are LOADS of them in my magical backyard due to the creek that runs behind it.
Then the most deep sound of them all started. It’s enough to shake our little house and it comforts me enough to rock me to sleep. What is it you ask? Of course, its dad snoring. ❤
What sounds do you hear at night when you are trying to go to sleep?
This morning, mom helped me on the big bed with her and dad. I was sleeping so well – just snoring away. Then mom decided she *had* to go to work – why mom – why? So I snorted my thoughts on that which woke up daddy. Then it led to why is Bacon on the bed stealing my blankets? Come on dad. We’ve been down this road before. It’s what I do. Snorts with piggy laughter.
Then dad had the nerve to call me fat. Not pleasantly plump. Not fluffy. Not big. Fat. FAT. Really dad? Are we naming names now? You want to hear what I call you? NOT THE MOMMY! Snorts.
Insert the theme music to Mission Impossible. Insert the Bond music. Insert any kind of secret pig music you can think of – snorts. I’ve thought long and hard about ‘The Great Pig Escape’. Let me explain and tell you the plan.
Nana lives TEN houses up from the Hotel Thompson. Nana *always* gives me treats and LOTS of them. I took an aerial view of my hood – don’t ask how cause I’m still dizzy from it. I can wait until mom tucks me in for the night. I can wait until I hear daddy snoring. I can then sneak out of the Hotel Thompson at night and blend in to the outside. I can take the pink arrowed path up to Nana’s and ring her doorbell. Of course she will let me in. I mean it’s only dark, she can’t see me through the peep hole but if I snort she’ll recognize me. I can get my share of treats and be back home in bed before mom and dad know I’m PMIA (Piggy Missing in Action).
I don’t need a costume. With my black fur, I can blend into the night and be one with my ninja skills. I can take the road therefore my hooves don’t have to touch grass. I can wear my fanny pack and put my house key in it as well as other snacks that Nana sends me back home with.
This is Hemi and Daddy spending some quality time last night after dinner. Daddy says this is what happens when dinner is really good – you pass out. I can relate. I’ve had dinners like that where mom has went way beyond out of the way.
Dad started playing his Angry Bird game on the Ipad. Of course, Hemi was supervising and helping to ‘swat’ thost pesky little squawkers. The next thing you knew, dads head as well as Hemi’s started slowly going down.
I just happen to have mom’s camera phone since she was washing the dishes. Snort – they talk about me snoring – LOL
Of course, leave it to my mommy to video tape something so personal – rolls piggy eyes. She finds me fascinating, can you tell? There I was minding my own business on the couch last night. I had positioned myself around mom and had my snout warmly snugged on her legs. There’s nothing like contact body heat. I was a warm piggy and so content.
Mom and dad were watching television and playing their respective iPads. Mom thought she heard a noise outside and told dad to mute the television. That’s when they heard it and the soft laughter began. They didn’t want to wake me up because mom – always with her camera – started video taping the situation.
Watch the video which mom has already blasted all over You Tube – thanks mom. Shakes piggy head, absolutely NO privacy here at the Hotel Thompson. You will see mom’s legs – ha back at you – how you feel now mommsy – Snort! Bottom right hand corner you will notice my snout. Make sure your volume is turned up. Hope this brings a laugh to your day my friends. Happy Friday! Hogs and Kisses – Bacon
This past weekend was a blast. I spent most of it curled up on the couch with mom watching television. One time, we both fell asleep and dad laughed. He said he didn’t know which one of us snores the loudest. It was so funny!
I also played around a lot with my toys, even my human toy called mom. I would walk up to her and touch her legs with my snout wagging my little tail. She would talk to me, “Bacon, you want to play?” She would then get up and chase me down the hall. I would chase her back up the hall from my bedroom. We would do this for long periods of time. So much so, that we would crash together on the couch and take a little rest. Then, we would do it all again running up and down the hall. She’s a lot of fun like that. Even the cats were trying to crash in on my fun times. They were running with us playing tag. She’s the best mom!
Mom and dad went out a lot on Saturday doing what they called grocery shopping. I think they were filling up the ice box where they keep my food. I like that. Food makes my happy so they can go shopping like this anytime. I stayed in my room and was a good piggy waiting for them to come back home.
Did you do anything exciting this weekend? It was beautiful here this weekend as well. Mom said it was somewhere in the 70’s. That beats the cold nights we’ve been having.
