Last night, I was sitting in the guest bed reading, when a bat flew into the room. Somehow, this isn't something I had ever expected to happen in my own home. It freaked the hell out of me. One or the other of us had accidentally left the upstairs kitchen door open, and before you could say Bob's your uncle - a bat must have flown into the house, attracted to the lights left on in the stairwell. From there, it must have somehow figured out that downstairs would be 'specially interesting place to visit, probably because I switched off the stairwell light before retiring to the guest bedroom. Anyhow, that fucking bat scared the hell out of me. I ran out of the room with the duvet on my head - I don't know why, but I immediately cowered under the duvet when I saw that bat flying around up by the ceiling. I guess I didn't want it to fly into my face. Yuck. My heart was really poundingat that point. Man, I hope that never happens again. I have to try to remember to keep all the doors in the house shut - after all, we're living in the countryside!
