Late Night Music

There is that state of wakefulness where you are semi-aware that you are awake but not wanting to be.  The other night I was nice and warm in my bed when I became aware there was some unusual noise for the middle of the night..  It wasn't the alarm and it wasn't a kid's voice.  But it stopped. 

A moment later, I heard it again.  It was coming from our bathroom.  "...Let's sing-along with Alphabet Pal!"

Oh, you have got to be kidding.

Must I get up?  Why is it playing?  Won't it just stop on its own?

I guess Ryan got annoyed with Alphabet Pal faster than I did, because I felt him roll out of bed, and heard his grunt when he smashed his toes on the foot board.  I heard him mutter something about "stupid toys," and "darn kids leaving their toys everywhere," on his way back to bed.

I made sure Alphabet Pal (or any other battery operated toy) was not in our bathroom when we went to bed last night.

Oh we've been there! What's even worse is when the toy is low on battery and sounds like a possessed transvestite!
