My Sister Goes “Batty”

little_brown_bat_fwsMy niece recently sent me this true story – and  I had to share it with you all!

I’m sure many of us can relate!

I was not there, so this account is from mother.

Mom woke up in the middle of the night when she heard something that sounded like a mouse burrowing in paper. She listened for awhile and finally woke my Dad up.

When Dad turned on a light, the creature that was in the corner FLEW!

It was a bat and it was in their bedroom.

Mom started to scream, “Kill it, kill it!”

Dad jumped out of bed and slammed the bedroom door – now making mom and dad stuck with the bat! <insert dramatic dooms day music>

Dad started jumping around the room trying to catch it when it occurred to him that he had nothing to put it in.  So he rounded the bat into the master bathroom and slammed the door on him (again).

Then dad bounded out of the bedroom looking for a box leaving Mom screaming and hiding under the covers.

Now that Dad was gone she was a bit more nervous, especially when it occurred to her that the bat could fit under the small space under the bathroom door!

Just then she saw a head stick out from under the bathroom door and mom says she’s almost certain it stuck his tongue out at her!

Then Dad heroically returned with a box and started the chase again! He finally caught it in the box and removed it from the house.

My mom may never be the same.

I can understand why! My only question is – do bats really have tongues?!
