Ca Caw

You see that face? Bet y’all thing that that is the face of a cherub. Well you are wrong……he is a devil child in disguise.
Now obviously I do not truly think that Tember is a devil child but he came close last night.
Please note that no one was injured during this process. Although it was a close thing.
This is the ex’s week. Tember is home between 9:30-10 pm. I had two cups of coffee after 5 last night and still by 9:30 my eyes were closing and I was doing the head jerk. I figured I would turn out the light cuddle with Loki and Baby Yoda while waiting. Usually when he comes home I hear the door open and slam shut.
I must have drifted off just a bit when suddenly in my light lack of consciousness I hear: Ca Caw.
Eyes flew open and I looked over my shoulder. To the dark figure standing in my doorway.
Now I am blind as a bat without my glasses on. All I can see are shapes and that is it. The only light on was over the stove. So it was not like I had a clue. And most importantly I had not heard to the door open or close…..did not hear it lock…..there had been no voice saying ‘mom I am home.’
I shot up and screamed. I do not mean a little ah I am talking a full bloodied shriek as I believed that there was a stranger in the doorway to my bedroom.
Tember flew around the side of the bed and grabbed me in a hug. All while apologizing as he thought that I was still awake.
Loki had flown off the bed from beside me. Tember found him in the living room. Lucky and Thomas both were staring at me like I am the biggest wierdo that they have ever laid eyes on. Once my heart returned to my chest and my breathing calmed down Tember again apologized. I chuckled as I laid my head back down on the pillow. That chuckle became giggles. I giggled softly to myself more than a couple of times.
I do enjoy being scared.
When I am awake.
With my glasses on.
In the daylight.

    1. πŸ˜‹πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£ He was horrified that he had scared me so badly. He kept apologizing over and over. At least we know my heart is still good. Lmao I did giggle so hard after though. And thank goodness the neighbors did not call police. And my window was closed or would have freaked neighbors in condo behind us. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

            1. Last best one backfired on me as I ended up scaring myself as well. Tember wanted to know of someone was under the stairs and I said only if the guy I had tied up under my bed had escaped. I had to stand in door while Tember cleaned litter boxes. Next evening he is at his dad’s and I go into clean boxes. Kept darting looks at stairs (slight storage space under them) and swore I heard breathing. Freaked myself right out. 🀣🀣🀣🀣😱😱


        1. It is more that it is unexpected. I was suppose to meet outside and was heading out when they they are. Son loves creeping up on me covered in blanket. Did once when I was in fridge closed door turned around and bam right in my face and yes I screamed. And after calling him a jerk etc I was dying laughing.
