    Cool the night the world did not end.....

    The night the world was supposed to end…..
    I am awakened at 1:15 by a very loud clap of thunder that rattles the windows…Not a good omen for the day the world is supposed to end. However I notice the power is still on so I figure if the world is coming to an end the electricity would be off. I decide to just go back to sleep. At 3:30 I am awakened again by a large Thump out on the porch. End of the world? Zombie Apocalypse? Mad dog burglars? Who knows I am not getting out of my cozy warm bed to see….Power still on so still not the end of world. Besides it is raining hard and lightning and rolling thunder is off in the distance.
    Around 7:am I get up and need some coffee before I face the world…ending or not. Later I go to take out the trash and find a very large very dead rat on top of the washer. I use my very best CSI acquired skill to determine from a distance that there is no visible trauma and only a small amount of blood by the head. The brains seem intact so no zombie rat apocalypse. The mystery of how the rat got up there will have to wait, I poke him off the washer with a ten foot pole and putt it into the weeds next to the fence. Time to disinfect the washer and surrounding area with bleach!!! I need more coffee now. As to the mystery of it’s death, maybe the rat believed the world was ending and committed suicide so as not to suffer from the after effects, but a note to all very large rats, if you want to kill yourself or other rats by banging your head against something solid….go choose a nice tree out in the forest and leave my washer and my porch alone…nuff said suicidal zombie rats!
    10:30….world still not ending so I guess I will just get on with my day, you know I have a lot of fabric and quilts are waiting to get done…oh so hear this cosmos….the world can’t end until I use up the fabric….that only gives me 26,000 years till the next b'ak'tun.

    Both of you are nuts!!! Delightfully funny, too!
    I'm glad I slept the night away easily last night in my cozy quilt covered bed with my CPAP machine to keep me down for the count.

    Thanks for the giggle. I feel the same way -- there are things to do and places to go. If the world ends today - so be it ---I'm ready!

    You are a great story-teller. I loved your story. When my husband and I went to bed last night we figured out if we woke up in the morning and everything still hurt, we were still alive. Guess what? We woke up and everything still hurt. Better luck next time.

    Wonderful story indeed. I had heard that 12/12/12 was supposed to be the end. It's so funny how people will believe this malarky.

    Remember when the year 2000 was to click over and some people thought that was going to be the end. I wonder if all the people who stocked up on food, water, fuel etc have a Plan B.

    I knew it wasn't going to end. There is still too much Bible prophecy to take place yet!!
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Funny story! You have a way with words. Have you considered writing a book?
    A time to tear, And a time to sew;
    A time to keep silence, And a time to speak;
