Three am…..the blue flicker from the room beyond
television surfing channels
eyes open to slowly register
who is up,
who is watching…..
He stumbles into the living room
dog sits up as if caught in the act,
the channel changes once more
perhaps to hide the show watched?
Animal planet voyeurism perhaps?
Dog runs to bed like a small child caught in the act,
the remote lay lifeless in the divit where the dog had lain,
everyone awake now
as the girl curls up on the bed to sleep once more-
husband now wide eyed and alert
no more sleep for him
as I flip over and resume my dreams.
Apparently the remote was left on the couch and the surround sound left on when we went to bed last night, Apple having her doggie dreams maybe? rolled onto the remote which turned the tv on and then the surfing of channels began. Still chuckling about it this morning as I write this. I slept like a baby after that, many dreams and solid sleep. Poor hubby not so lucky.
