  1. hehehe! brilliant!

    ps: thanks for the leftover chicken - whatever's out on the table after midnight is fair game right?!? ;)

  2. Well, I was getting a bit claustrophobic, too. So glad that door finally opened. And what? You say the light goes out when the door is closed?

  3. Or a bigger fridge?

    At least now you have an excuse for any cheesy smells {not, of course, that would ever be the case!}

    Won't available food attract late night badgers? That may interfere with a good nights sleep too. I know you love a party.....

    The easy answer is of course to move up here to Scotland where it's usually 'Baltic' all the time..... I mean.... where you may find a more acceptable night-time temperature. That should allow you to continue dreaming of Mildred......

    {leaves thought hanging in the air}

  4. Hey Eolist! Absolutely, tho an old Oriental fella once advised me not to feed you after midnight.

    Hey Blissed-Out! You know, Nancy, I was never sure before now. I was told that was the case by 'Difficult, but he's not to be trusted. And I am very trusting.

    Hey Alistair! Oh good grief man, they don't eat leftovers! Last time I left the door unlocked when I went to bed, my 2am visit to the loo revealed them tucked up with a substantive spread of Korean food, watching an Ingmar Bergman marathon. But they tidied well; by the morning, it was if they'd never been there. Perhaps you've had the same experience?

    Thanks one and all! Indigo

  5. You have managed to make my heart race while laughing uncontrollably at the end.

    You, sir, are a master storyteller.

  6. Hey Joshua! Thank you, that's a lovely thing to say, and I'll accept the compliment! Actually, creepy and funny was just what I was aiming for, so I'm glad it hit the spot. An unlikely result for a yawning fella at midnight. But I'd never have got it done today. Thanks again, Indigo.

  7. Hahahahahah! Only you would resort to sleeping in the fridge!!

    I loved this! :)

  8. Brilliant! And apart from the "My back, behind me as ever" that made me laugh out loud, you pretty much summed up a recurring nightmare of mine, and whilst often waking in a cold sweat, I've yet to find myself in the fridge :)

  9. Hey Robbie! I'm mildly claustrophobic, but my one true terror is potholing. I watched THE DESCENT and spent the whole film squirming about the environment rather than the supernatural peril. A true nightmare! And you should try the fridge. Just don't forget. Indigo

  10. Might I be so bold as to suggest installing a parachute over the fridge? That way you can sleep comfortably under the parachute in front of the fridge with the door open and still get a midnight snack. You might want to unscrew the light bulb first, though. So hard to sleep with the light on....

  11. Hey Boom Boom! It's curious that you said that; I installed an extension to the fridge to sleep in. And yes, the bulb was the first thing to go! Indigo
