Quincy: Nightstalker

Posted by K  

I woke up around 3am last night to the sound of Quincy roaming around in my room.

Not disconcerting at all.

Turning on the light for a minute or two usually gets him to stop making noise. It works if I turn the tv on too. Like he's cool with waking me up, but not with interrupting "Storage Wars". Weird.

Cue creepy "Jaws" music.

We stared at each other for awhile until I got bored and turned the lights off again.

About 30 seconds after I closed my eyes, I heard him start purring. That is generally not a good sign when he's sitting alone in the dark.

I was immediately suspicious, so I turned on a light just in time to see this:

He was destroying my headphones.


He managed to grab them from right under my nose. Almost literally right under my nose. It's like he takes some perverse pleasure in ruining my music experience. After I yelled "WHY?!!" he backed off and stared at me like I was crazy. He clearly doesn't realize how badly I need my tunes while riding the bus.

This time, despite a bite mark through one of the wires, they still seem to work, so I used duct tape to patch them up. They are now the most stylish headphones ever.

I'm going to start hiding the headphones in a kleenex box next to my bed. I'll probably end up accidentally throwing the whole box out with the garbage, then Quincy will win. Again.
