They won't grunt at me again!




This weeks prompt at Sunday Scribblings is 'Bump in the Night'
I think I have a pretty good idea about what will happen in the future. I have to admit that none of my predictions have come true yet, but it’s only a matter of time. The other night my friends laughed when I told them that next week....... well, never mind! When I left to go home they were all making snorting and grunting noises. ‘I’ll show them’ I thought.

A bump in the night
It gave me a fright
I jumped out of bed
And tuned on the light

Guess what I saw
Just there by the door
A confused looking pig
Prostrate on the floor!
'
The poor pig had stars spinning around its head and it was looking at me through crossed eyes! I was a little confused I can tell you! At first I thought it was a dream, but I did that pinching myself thing and it hurt, so I guessed I must have been awake. Then I noticed there were bits of my ceiling all over the carpet and an enormous hole above my head!

I looked up to the sky
And realised that I
could prove to my friends
That pigs really fly!
