The Van Nuys Horror

I took the garbage out last night. When I turned around to go back inside, I saw two eyes glowing in the darkness. They gave me a startle. It must be a raccoon, possum or cat.

I slowly stepped closer, they didn't move. They stared back at me, unblinking. I began to get creeped out. I noticed the eyes were very large and attached to an equally large shadowed shape. Now I froze and became spooked.

Ghosts, goblins, bigfoot, aliens and everything supernatural raced through my head, so I decided to go back inside. As I walked, the eyes followed me. I then thought it best to run to the back door (with my arms flailing above my head).

Looking out the kitchen window, the eyes still watched me. Now I was really, really, really scared... goose bumps and all. Holy Mother of's that pig demon from the Amityville horror!

Common sense took over...I had rearranged the garden the other day... I was seeing our decorative gazing ball reflecting our two patio lights.

I'm going to move it today...and lay off the sci fi/horror movies for awhile.
