The first time I thought it was a fluke...
Just a random event that would 'hopefully' never happen again.
But it DID!!!!
The bat came back!!!
(Insert girly scream here!)
Tonight as I was sitting at this very computer, reading blogs, I saw something fly past me through the doorway and into the living room.
It took a second for it to compute.
I figured it out when Q-ball started running around the living room, yelling for me.
I (not so calmly) told him to run upstairs.
We barged through the bedroom door where Meshack, Punky and JacJac were listening to the K-State football game (we won by the way - Go Cats!) and both of us started in at once...
Me - 'There's a bat.'
Q - 'Dad, it's HUGE!'
Me - 'You've got to get it out of here.'
Q - 'It looks like a bird.'
Me - 'I don't care what it takes, it has to be gone NOW!'
Q - 'He had a really tiny head.'
Q-ball you're missing the point!
Meshack mumbled something about that's what you get for buying an old house and headed down the stairs to wage battle.
Q-ball, Punky and JacJac gathered around the floor vent to watch the scene below.
As the bat few around the living room (that gives me the creeps just writing it) he passed by the floor vent every so often.
Each time the kids would jump back, let out a yelp, then a giggle and lay back down on the floor.
It would have been cute if the bat wouldn't have been freaking me out.
Finally, Meshack managed to get it out...I'm not exactly sure how...and we were let out of our self-imposed prison.
The kids went to bed.
Meshack went back to listening to his game.
And I came back down here to the computer.
Tomorrow Meshack says he'll try to find where these things are coming from.Sigh.
