Fiscal things that can go bump in the night
By Anthony W. Minge, EdD
“From ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggedy beasties and things that go bump in the night, Good Lord, deliver us!” — Scottish saying
Have you ever heard that noise in the middle of the night? You know, the one just when you are dozing off and there it is … thump! And you whisper, “What was that!?” Do you lay there, frozen still, intently listening, wondering if you really heard something? Or do you get up, flashlight in hand, in search of this distressing and unexplained sound? Do you check under the bed, in the closets, and maybe even have a peak in the basement? Or do you pull the covers up over your head and try to pretend you didn’t really hear anything at all … just the wind, an alley cat rustling through the garbage, or something else relatively harmless?
