Woken Up

I got woken up from my sleep by a mouse tapping on my nose. I asked what was so important.

The mouse said, “I’m cold. Would you mind if I slept with you?”

I wanted to go back to sleep so I said yes. The mouse got under the covers and spooned me. We both fell fast asleep.

Soon I was awakened by the cat.

The cat said, “I’m lonesome and I’m willing to forgo my hatred of the mouse to sleep with the two of you.”

The mouse nodded and of course I wanted to sleep so I said yes too. The cat got under the covers and spooned the mouse, who spooned me, and we were soon sleeping. 

Not long after, I was awakened by the Moon. I raised a questioning eyebrow. 

The Moon said, “I’m scared of the dark. Can I join you three?” 

Normally I would have imagined I’d say no because the Moon is so bright at night. But the Moon was inside and not able to reflect the Sun’s rays. So I said yes.
