It Went Bump In the Night!

I have a pretty hilarious story unrelated to crafts. Well, it is KIND of related!

You remember when I said here that

"I was going to nail hanging brackets on the back, but the nail was too long.  Because the board is so light weight, I just hot glued the brackets.  Hopefully they won't fall and slam into my face one day."

Last night the hubby and I finally crashed around 12:30am.  I don't think it took more than ten minutes for me to fall asleep, because not twenty minutes later I was woken up by a loud BOOM!

Before I could even sit up and say "What was that!"  the hubby had already jumped out of bed, turned on the light, cocked his gun, and had his flashright at the ready.

I finally  managed to get out "WHAT WAS THAT!" To which the hubby replied "I don't know. Stay here."

What did I do?  Stumble out of bed against his request and start peeking through the blinds.  What was I looking for?  I don't know exactly, I still couldn't focus my eyes!

I finally regained my composure and eyesight and headed out into the living room, heart pounding, thinking I was going to see my hubby shoot a home invader.  Our backporch has three entry points: two windows and a glass door.  Anyone who really wants in our house could get in.

Each time I tried to peek through the blinds I would get blinded by the hubby's intense light.  Now I see what he means about it being so effective against theives.  You can't see a dang thing.

We finally realized no one was in our house and all the doors and windows were secure.  So WHAT WAS IT?!

As I'm peering out the front window onto the porch, still looking for a culprit or a broken pot, I hear an annoyed "OOOOH! I know what it was!"

I could tell by the tone of his voice it was in some way related to me, so I timidly walked into my office.  Yep.  My weekend $5 artwork that was so lightweight had fallen off the wall.  Why?  Because I guess it's not really that lightweight.  The hot glue had come undone  and caused the hanging bracket to rip off the back.

I kind of looked at my toes, then looked up and smiled and said "Thanks for protecting me from my picture!"  =)
