The Sky is Falling

Remember Chicken Little? 
He and I have a lot in common right now. 
The sky is falling at my house too, and it does it with a bang.
Totally soothing when you're trying to fall asleep.
Soothing during Sunday afternoon relaxation.
And soothing in the middle of the day, when no one is around,
But the random sounds of...the sky falling. 
{The only version I could find included a scripture.
 You can thank me later for your spiritual thought for the day}

During today's roommate BBQ, 
We were entertained by the sounds of
acorns falling on the metal roof of our sun room.
While joking around that all we needed was
A few friends to show up who were
Unaware of what happens around our house,
We got just that,
A few innocent visitors.

I'll let the video do the taking.
{It's best beginning at second 46, but,
 The previous 45 seconds are a great build up}

If you didn't know any better, you'd think our quaint little neighborhood
Was deemed "the hood",
Total gangster style,
Where drive by shootings are a plenty.

When I say the sky is falling with a bang around here, 
I mean it in a literal sense.
And lucky me, my bedroom is conveniently placed
 RIGHT next to the metal roof of said sun room.

I'll be singing myself to sleep to the words of
Burt Bacharach's, 
[Acorns] Keep Falling On My Head.

Sweet dreams from,
 "the hood"

Sounds like it was a fun dinner (literally)! :)

He had the best reaction. I only wish the camera had gotten the whole thing!

Nice. They might dent our cars, but at least they provide for some good entertainment.
