I tried to lure him back to bed, but he was having none of it.
I listened myself, and indeed heard a strange clicking noise coming from downstairs.
Upon further investigation, it seemed like it was coming from the downstairs window. My first thought was an intruder was trying to break through the window screen. But then I saw it…the lightening bug that could not get his butt to light up, causing it to click.
My fright then turned to disgust and Rod's fright turned to excitement. He found the intruder!
Once the bug was removed, Rod was able to fall back to sleep in no time, having done his job for the evening. The threat was neutralized!
However, some of us stayed awake, thinking of all the potential bugs hanging around the house.
