I need to be more careful about my blog topics. In the past week I've written about seeing the movie Batman and having a new predator in my home. Can you guess where this is going?
Last night, as I innocently watched The Lords of Dogtown on TV, a bat swooped through my living room.
IN MY LIVING ROOM.
RIGHT OVER MY HEAD.
I managed to maintain my bodily functions and flattened myself against the sofa. The whole thing was over in a matter of seconds - I barely had time to yelp before he (she?) flew out the window.
I've seen them downtown, circling the trees after dark, and we even encountered a pair in a friend's hotel room, but I've never seen them in our neighborhood.
Perhaps someone turned on the batlight?
