So it shouldn't be keeping me awake but of course it is, waiting for it to take on a human rhythm, waiting for the need to take action to investigate and do something about it because shit I'm the grown up (there used to be another grown up here but in the end I was just imagining that) and so I'll have to put on clothes, grab a flashlight and a cup of coffee, and my phone (can't go anywhere without that damn thing) and step out into the yard to properly witness the heinous crime of tree branches scrapping against a shed roof.

Very nicely sentenced!
A kind of similar thing happened to me a couple months ago.  I don’t have any pets currently. I have a fenced back yard. 3am and something which sounds at least as big as a mid-size dog is snuffling loudly and scratches at my bedroom door. My wife also wakes up and says, “What’s that?!!?”  I took a couple of Nopes and put my head under the pillow.

I was interested enough to google Nopes, thinking MB a new downer I had not heard of but then just bad pics of undesirable animals, so nm.
