"Chuckie" in our House
RESEMBLANCE? I think so...
So last night at 3:20am I wake up to a strange sound coming from outside which I assume is a Screech Owl? I try to fall back asleep but the sound is really disturbing me. Mark had fallen asleep upstairs reading books to Laine, so I go up there to get him because I always sleep better when he's next to me. When he walks in our room, I point out the sound and ask him if it's an Owl. He doesn't think it is, so he goes to look out our bathroom window which faces the backyard. A few minutes later, the sound is gone and Mark climbs back into bed and says nothing. Here's our exact conversation from there:
Me: "Well--what was it?"
Mark: "Just one of Laine's bath toys mumbling.."
Me: "Huh? She doesn't have any talking bath toys."
Mark: "Ya--that Ariel doll she got for her birthday."
Me: "Oh. Ya."
Mark: "She was making mumbling noises when I walked in there and then she said, 'Do you want to play?' and then she said 'Goodnight.'"
Me: "WHAT? She doesn't say that! She doesn't talk at all; she just hums a song."
Mark: "Are you calling me a liar?"
Me: "No, but I'm telling you she doesn't talk."
Mark: "I swear to God that's what she said."
I know my husband and he's not joking around. At this point I get out of bed and walk in the bathroom to examine the doll. I press her button and she says nothing. I shake her and she says nothing. I go to my computer to Google her in order to learn all her capabilities. I find a video on YouTube with a full demonstration of what she does. She hums when you dip her tail in water--THAT'S IT! No talking! Here is the video to make my point:
So now I am completely freaked out and unable to fall back asleep. I tell Mark my findings and he seems unphased.
Me: "I want you to take that doll to the dumpster first thing in the morning and I'm not kidding."
Mark: "She'll only find her way back here..."
