Monster Spray!

So, like Monsters, Inc., Payton as gotten to the age where there are monsters in his closet and giant spiders trying to crawl into his bed. After waking me up at 3:30, 4:00, and 4:30 Monday morning, I decided something needed to change. I went and "bought" Monster Spray. Monster Spray consists of a can of Oust air freshener, with a homemade label taped on the can. The label says this:

Monster Spray

Guaranteed to remove from any room all monsters, spiders, spookies, scaries and any type of creepies.

Directions: Spray a two second burst in the room to repel all monsters. Repeat as necessary.

At bedtime Monday night, I presented Payton with this can of Monster Spray. I read the label to him. We sprayed the room, as needed. I didn't hear a peep out of him all night. When I got him up in the morning, he told me "There was one spider arm trying to climb into my bed, but I sprayed one drop of my Monster Spray on it, and it went away." WOO HOO! It worked!!! He keeps it under his pillow for those middle of the night monsters. Too bad he won't always be this gullible.

We got promoted!

The word has gotten around, but I'll post it here anyway. Ray and I both got promoted Sept. 1. I was promoted to Lieutenant, and Ray was promoted into my Sergeant's position. Our bosses pulled us into the Sheriff's office at the same time, and promoted us together. How cool is that? So, I am now back in the jail, after eight years. Ray is a patrol sergeant. We're settling into our roles. Ray a little easier than me, LOL. After two days at my new job, my boss had to leave the state for a family emergency. I had to handle a jail inspection, on my own. Yee Haw. But, it went OK. Nothing like trial by fire.
