Click, Click, Click...

On Waldron Street, Lair of the Mighty Raven.

2:00 AM: CLICK, CLICK, CLICK, CLICK....

Wha...? (rolls over, strains ears).

CLICK, CLICK, CLICK, CLICK....

Owl? Naw… to high pitched… but it is in a series…

*snores*

2:10 AM: CLICK, CLICK, CLICK, CLICK, CLICK, CLICK hiccough ....

Lies awake listening. Still awake two hours later. Clicking repeats randomly over the hour.At end of string of clicks can discern slight hiccough noise. Now am certain it is a rogue Western Screech Owl that took choir lessons.

3:00 AM: CLICK, CLICK, CLICK, CLICK, CLICK, CLICK ....

Damn it. *rummages in spare room, finds mini-tape recorder but no tapes. Damn it. Goes to front window. Owl is a car, parked right outside from bedroom window. Car alarm (?) or whateverthefeck goes off randomly several times with accompanying click, click, click, click....

4:00 AM: lies in bed contemplating car bombs, murder of car owner and nasty note for placing under wind-shield.

Thought occurs… what if clicking of owl is what is setting off car alarm?

Lies awake remainder of night contemplating car bombs and come to that, owl bombs.
