My mom and dad like to have music playing all night long while they sleep. It is very pretty music, very ethereal. It reminds me of clouds in the sky. It comes from some devices perched on my dad's dresser.
Anyway, the other night, as the music was playing, I jumped up onto my dad's dresser. But I lost my footing when I landed and my head bumped into one of the music devices. The music suddenly changed. It sounded like a piano and a violin. I was a little startled to have such power over the music, but since nothing further happened, I continued on up to my mom's dresser so I could look out the window for a while.
After a couple of minutes both my mom and dad half-woke up wondering about the music and why it was different. They could not figure out why it wasn't the same music they fell asleep to. They both stumbled out of bed and came over to my dad's dresser and began sleepily poking around with the music devices to find what was going wrong.
After a minute or two of bewildered fumbling my mom said, "It's the radio! The radio is on, not the CD." My dad found the switch and put the other music on, the ethereal, cloud music. They spent a few minutes wondering how the switch could have been changed from CD to radio during their sleep. I think I heard my name mentioned a couple of times, but I decided to keep quiet and pretend I didn't notice anything.
