At 2:45 a.m. while D & I were fast asleep, we hear the call from Monk's room: "Mom! Dad!"
"Yes?" We both call out in alarmed reply.
There is a brief pause. "Okay, now I have two questions." announces the Monk. "First, can I have a drink of water so I can get back to sleep? And second, what the heck are you two doing up at this hour?"
