Hoons At Night

Note 1: Carole, like any adult, has occasional bad dreams that prevent her from getting a good night’s sleep.


Note 2: Carole typically has a terrible temper in the morning, made even worse by tossing and turning all night.


Note 3: Carole would like to come downstairs to the room sleep in (when I’m in town) and be comforted after a bad night, but, unfortunately, her terrible temper means it’s hard, if not impossible, for her to find a polite way of to request said comforting services. And she doesn’t want to come down and just yell at me when I didn’t do anything wrong.


So I suggested that I simply put up a poster somewhere in her room where she could wake up and see it, something that said something along these lines: “IN CASE OF HORRIBLE NIGHTMARES AND YOU NEED COMFORTING, TELL JAY THE HOONS HAVE BEEN SQUAWKING”.





She liked that idea a lot.


So I blew a few minutes, needing no further encouragement to exert my creativity in pursuit of inanity, and produced the following:



I think that oughtta do the trick for even the surliest Carole, don’t you?
