At first I thought it was red squirrels or mice in the walls. It has happened before. It sounded like crumpling paper or scampering little feet. Then I thought these over priced hearing aids were on the fritz again. “They” use the term, hearing instruments. For what I paid for them I’ll call them whatever the hell I want. Then I remembered rain was forecast. I raised the window and reached out and gathered a hand full of rain drops. I could actually hear them. It was very pleasant. I left the window “cracked” just a bit. The better to hear those scampering little feet.
