The two of us all hate to be scared awake.
My dad used to find it just hilarious to wake myself and others up in the day with an old, handheld loudspeaker.
It was alarming as well as he would just get the biggest kick out of it. I think he was working out some sort of trauma from his Marine Corp afternoons. He would tell myself and others horror stories of having a bin put over his head as well as then his drill sergeant would start pounding on it with a metal spoon. It’s that or that seasoned person had some sort of sadistic streak in him. Either way, it was exhausting as well as I have carried that with myself and others through the years. As soon as I lower the Heating as well as Air Conditioning for the night, I turn off our phone. If there is an emergency then call our partner. So, it was with a usual heart pounding that I found myself jumping straight out of bed ready to confrontation the other night. There was a bang coming from the basement which shook the entire house. I was running for the kids rooms before I knew I was even awake. Then, it dawned on myself and others that there may have been a gas furnace failure. I had heard a gas furnace shut down quickly before as well as I remember it was quite loud. Hurrying down the basement stairs, I could already smell the acrid smoke. Something had failed inside the gas furnace allowing it to get too hot. The resulting shut down had slammed the gas furnace off to keep it from cracking. As I stood by our smoldering gas furnace, I swear I could hear our dad cackling at myself and others from heaven or elsewhere!
