The sound of crickets filled the moist morning air.
Darkness gave way to an early morning light as I rolled out of bed.
My Varmint’s middle school orientation began today, and I intended to meet the bus, even though it stops by our house at the butt-crack of dawn. The calm of daybreak filled the house, the gentle wakening of everyone began.
All Hell Broke Loose:
Augh! (Smack!) Leave me alone!
Time to get up! Come on, I’ll help you!
Don’t even. I’ll smack you into next Tuesday, Bub.
Would you get up if I cleaned behind your ear after I lick my genitals?
It’s gonna be a weird day.
