Our story begins in a quiet little neighborhood where three children kept a deep dark secret. You see, their mama, when woken too early, was like a raging, ferocious, dangerous beast. Frightening in every way. The children lived in fear of this monster and took every precaution to be quiet in the wee hours of the morning. But one day, they were so delighted in their play (at 6 a.m.) that they forgot to speak quietly. The mama ignored it. Lucky for them, she was exhausted. A few minutes later they started to tease each other and again, there seemed to be no consequences. Maybe, all this time, they had lived in fear of nothing. So, the youngest tried something bold - she stole a toy from her sibling and he responded with a high pitched scream. They had gone too far. The monster emerged from the dark foreboding cavern to find that not only were they teasing their brother, they had taken ALL the bedding off their beds and made a gargantuan mess. The beast lost it... she bellowed and howled and commanded that the disaster be taken care of without delay. But then, something happened to the beast. She was able to fully awaken. Her mind cleared and she realized what a brute she had been. Guiltily, she apologized and helped to clean the mess. Secretly she vowed to go to bed earlier so that the beast within would not rear it's ugly head ever again.
Sigh... do you ever have moments where you loose your cool? :S
