~ A Moment of Fear ~

I had a good time today!  My friend came to visit from Chicago and we had a great day, hanging out, reminiscing and such.  Time flew by and it was like 1:00 am when we parted in the heart of DC.  

To get back home, I had to drive up George Washington Parkway.  During the day, it's beautiful!!  But....it was 1am.  There were no lights.  There were no cars.  I was utterly alone for a few miles, surrounded by trees and darkness.  

I tried to be brave and not think about all those scary books and movies that I love so much.  All those scenes of people/bad things jumping out of the woods or appearing in the rearview mirror.  I made it though.  Got home without incident, played with Momo for a lil bit and decided to take a shower.

So....I just got in the shower, enjoying the steaminess.  All of a sudden, I heard scratching at the door.  And in that one moment, all the scary shower scenes in books and movies came rushing into my head.  It's 2am.  I am alone, in the shower, with scratching sounds at the door.  I just drove through some dark, lonely woods.  Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What if a blue hand reaches out to touch me (Grudge) ?!?!?  What if someone is now on the other side of the shower curtains?!?!

Then, I heard.....

Momo whining.

It was Momo.
  

You may wonder why I didn't think of that, why I got all worked up over nothing.  Well, Momo is enclosed on the first floor by 2 gates.  He's not trusted to be on carpet unsupervised yet.  But, somehow he got out!!  I haven't figured out how he did it yet, but hopefully I do.  Otherwise, he'll have to be crated tonight.

Sometimes, he's just too smart for his own good!
