Loud Thumping in the basement | Gnomes in my Home

BUM buh DUM buh da Duh DUM… BUM buh DUM buh da Duh DUM…


I heard this percussionistic music playing the other night while I was deep in sleep, dreaming about something embarrassing I did in high school, I welcomed the interruption. I sat in bed and listened closely.


BUM buh DUM buh da Duh DUM… BUM buh DUM buh da Duh DUM…


It was coming from inside the walls.


BUM buh DUM buh da Duh DUM… BUM buh DUM buh da Duh DUM…


The drum beat was hypnotizing. I enjoyed the night time party for a while, but curiosity got the best of me and I HAD to investigate. I got out of bed. I tiptoed in my blue striped nightgown (blue is my favorite color) down the hall, following the BUM buh DUM buh da Duh DUM… BUM buh DUM buh da Duh DUM…

It was definitely coming from the basement. I quietly stepped down the stairs, being careful not to step on those pesky squeaky stairs. I get closer. It gets louder. My heart is raising. Is this the time? Am I going to see the gnomes in action?

BUM buh DUM buh da Duh DUM… BUM buh DUM buh da Duh DUM…

I open the basement door. SQUEEK! The drums stop. I hear a scatter. I turn on the lights. My eyes quickly scan the room. Nothing. *disappointed sigh*


I greased the door. Next time….next time.


*Update* I found a tiny piece of wood on the floor. It looked like a miniature drumstick. Smaller than a toothpick!
