A veritable dichotomy

By Nate LaClaire

In our neighborhood, there are several dogs that bark all evening. One gets started and the others follow. It seems that they must all be chained out all night, for it doesn’t seem to matter what time I go to bed, I generally hear them while in bed. It’s a creepy sound – all of those dogs barking at once from all over the neighborhood. However, tonight I do not hear a single dog as I sit in bed typing this. Now that has me freaked out. It has become such a common occurrence that the lack of dogs barking now seems creepy. Go figure.
