Frankie had a really rough night of interrupted sleep and is looking for a bit of sympathy from our readers. Here’s his tale.
Frankie is the only member of The Herd who sleeps in the human bed. Unfortunately, that led to a rough night for him Thursday (or, more accurately, early Friday morning).
During the night, he had stretched across the foot of the bed and was sleeping with his head on Hu-Dad’s foot. Hu-Dad rolled over and pulled his foot out from underneath Frankie’s head. Since Hu-Dad is tall, his foot was extending beyond the end of the bed which meant Frankie’s head was now over air, not the bed. In his best Wile E. Coyote imitation, Frankie fell out of bed to the floor of the RV with a kerplunk, waking up every other occupant of the RV. Sort of hard to recover from such a moment with any dignity.
P.S. – This is the first time Frankie has ever fallen out of the bed, but Rusty the Rooster was good for it about once a month. The difference was Rusty just shook, jumped back on the bed, and went to sleep.
