My house is 60+ years old. It is about to start collecting Social Security. It has been a member of AARP for a while and it likes the early bird special. My house also makes weird noises. When I first moved in those weird noises would wake me up at night. However, the noises have become familiar as time goes by.
Until Tuesday night. That night I was woken up by the strangest noise. It was not breaking glass or squeaky doors. I couldn’t quite place the sound in my sleepy state. Maybe it was Santa! It took me about 10 minutes to come to my senses and when I did I jumped out of bed and ran to the window. I peeped through the blinds and realized that the mysterious noise was rain.
I had forgotten what it sounded like.
