31 Days of Spook – Things that go Bump in the Night

Oh my wickedly spooky friends I do hope you are enjoying my 31 Days of Spook.  Today I have a true story from my mom and dad that took place right here at the Hotel Thompson.  I’m sure it’s enough to frighten you… maybe make you scream just a little.. or maybe like it did my mom – make you make water down your leg – snorts.  You be the judge my friends.  Happy spooky thoughts.

P.S.  I’ll have my hoof out for you if you want to hold it 🙂


 Last weekend, mom and dad said they were extremely tired.  I just thought it was maybe perhaps due to the new baby here, Houdini.  I mean he can be a little handful – so much energy that puppy has!  They went to bed much earlier than normal.  Us anipals understood and let them go their way.  That is until the screaming started.  Shivers – and there was a lot of screaming and noise.  But again as sometimes I get, I get ahead of myself.  Let me start over with my story.

It was around 3AM – the waking spook hour some say.  Mom had walked down the hallway to go to the potty.  You see mom has troubles with sleeping.  With having this problem when she does get up in the middle of the night, she doesn’t turn on the lights and she tries not to open her eyes anymore than she has to.  Heck, she knows the Hotel Thompson so it’s not like she should ‘bump’ into anything… or she thought.

Mom walked down the hallway, half asleep with her eyes closed and no lights on.  She got to the bathroom and reached for the door and it was open.  That was strange to begin with because we keep the bathroom doors here closed for a reason – because a certain snort oink kitty Mouse Girl likes to play with the water faucets.  But at last, mom thought nothing of it and went further into the bathroom.  That’s when it happened.  She touched an arm –


What the cream cheese?!  It woke all of us anipals up from the screaming.  What mom had not realized was that daddy had just got up and went to the bathroom himself.  He also doesn’t turn on lights – well for obvious reasons because of his vision – snorts.  She touched his arm in the dark and he freaked out – mom freaked out – and well let’s just say water made its way down mom’s legs.

So the next time you have to get up in the middle of the night for the midnight stroll down to the facilities, you might want to think about my mom and dad.  Maybe turn on a night light or hall light… I’m just saying 🙂
