Christmas Came Early

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.
