Every time I make my bed in the morning, I always long to be Cinderella. No, I don’t want Charming. He can stick to his stuffy castle, I’ll take a tree house in Bali any day over a large abode which I’ll probably have to clean at some point.
I was saying, every time I make my bed in the morning, I long to be Cinderella. That girl may have had family drama but she had one special gift. The girl could get the animals do the chores for her, while singing and chirping songs along with her, for that matter.
As a clean freak with a penchant for daydreaming and a longing to live in a world where people break out into song during a normal conversation, this is THE DREAM. Yeh. I want to see birds pulling the sheets on my bed with their tiny beaks, mice sweeping the floor, and why the hell not, even sewing me a dress.
It happened in Vail, Colorado on the 31st of May. The bear broke into a family’s home to snoop around their stuff. Maybe it was a coincidence, maybe it was fate but it’s here that the bear may have made his musical debut.
How did the family find out it was a bear that broke into their home? They weren’t at home at the time. No, having a bear come into your home to jam on your piano while you lounge on the couch is a tiny bit of a farfetched scenario guys, let’s not go crazy now.
Katie Howley, the lady of the house (let’s speak properly now, this is a fairy tale) came in to find the house was trashed. She suspected that an intruder had come in to rob her house. Accordingly, Howley called the police.
Before moving on, let’s take a moment to talk about the supposed "trashing." Bears don’t trash people’s home. He might have been giving the house that "bear-chic" factor or maybe he thought the house looked awful and rather than telling them so, it was easier to ruin their stuff so they would get new things. Let’s not blame the bear, damn it.
When the police came to Howley’s home they did exceptional investigative work. Yeh. They told Howley to watch the surveillance tape to see who the intruder was.
11. Of All The Creatures In The World...
In such a situation, people would be shocked to find a stranger in their home or worse, someone they know! But what Howley and the police saw was strange on another level. They watched as the bear roamed around the living room, snooping and then, standing in front of the piano to rock out a ballad.
Alright, so he didn’t rock out a full ballad. He just played a few notes before heading upstairs to trash the family’s bedroom. But those were powerful notes he played. They were dramatic and full of emotion.
What did the bear do next? Well, after rearranging the home décor to his liking, he took some food from the freezer and headed out. I guess he was over the whole hunting-for-dinner-every-single-day chore.
In my head, that bear is still playing that damn piano. Can you just imagine ; you’re binge watching series on Netflix and suddenly the bear comes into your living room with his "don’t-mind-me-attitude-I’m-just-going-to-play-the-piano-for-a-bit." Those crisps you’re about to eat would fall right out of your mouth.
The one thing that’s puzzling me is why the bear broke into the Howley home. What kind of a mother does this bear have? Has she skipped out on reading him Goldilocks? Shouldn’t this bear know that this whole breaking in scenario should be the other way around?
