THE MONSTER UNDER THE PATIO TABLE
We have a monster that lives under the glass table on our patio.
Sometimes you can hear it late at night.
Legend has it that it possesses a terrible thirst. It drinks everything in sight. The ancient Celts believed that these fearsome creatures would drink the Atlantic dry, if given the chance.
After it rains, the water that collects underneath our glass table-top magically disappears. We never knew quite how this happened--it was magic.
Then, we caught the creature red-handed! 'Twas the dreaded Sephalump, licking the table dry.
Mothers, guard your children!
