Saturday night, we decided to watch “Signs”, the M. Night Shyamalan movie about Aliens visiting the earth. I haven’t see it for a while so was caught in some of those “gotcha” moments. I also forgot how creepy the aliens were.
Fast forward to this morning. I had to get up extra early to send my daughter of to an early morning choir rehearsal. After she left, I promptly fell back asleep and began dreaming. I could hear this weird sound that reminded me of a movie alien spaceship landing. I woke up to the realization that the sound was really happening right outside my window. In my sleepy stupor, I was imagining the ship landing on my street. My other daughter got up, freaked out too. She put on her shoes and coat and went outside to investigate.
Alas, instead of aliens visiting from another realm, it was just one of our crazy neighbors, sucking up leaves with a huge leaf sucker. Couldn’t he wait until at least 9:00 a.m. to begin the ruckus?
