At 3 a.m.
Jane Anderson, the wife
I’m going to kill him. How can such incredible noises come out of one nose? Whoever coined the term ‘sawing logs’ never spent a night in bed with—him. ‘Sawing logs’ would be a lullaby. He’s like a cross between…fingernails on the chalkboard and…an ailing bullfrog. Roll…OVER! (50 words)
Bill Anderson, the husband
Snrkk…schrrrck…gkrccxh…umph! An elbow in the ribs again. Must have been snoring. Funny—I never hear it, how bad can it be? Those elbows are sharp…sngghrxk…uh-oh, I heard that, better roll over…oh yeah, that’s not an elbow. C’mere, babe. (44 words)
Fluffy, the cat
I am a mighty lion…king of all I survey. I crouch here, high above the land below, watching for the slightest motion…there! A tiny movement…I leap from my perch…flattened to the ground, I creep slowly, slowly…I pounce! The tiny creature is mine! No…it’s gone. (50 words)
Toshiba, the computer
Yoo-hoo! Just got another e-mail! It’s just sitting here, in your inbox! Hey! Can’t you hear me calling? Three more messages just went up on—hold it—gotta update my Norton, gimme ten minutes. Ahhhhhh, that felt good, nice and clean now. Hey, wake up! Another e-mail! Wake up, already! (50 words)
Remember the Christmas when the girls played piano duets for hours? Remember the soupy raspberry pie that Molly made? Remember when Jenna put her hair in dozens of braids? Remember the huge stuffed gorilla that neither of them would even look at? Remember reading aloud on the couch? Remember? Remember? (50 words)
