MaZageens and Nazguls


Do you remember these things? 20 points if you knew that this is a Nazgul from Lord of the Rings. Welcome to the nerd club. If you'll recall, the Nazgul makes a horribly evil screeching sound as it's descending to slaughter the happy elves and dwarfs and such. We happen to have one such Nazgul living in our home.
Don't let his adorably kissable cheeks or big brown eyes fool you. This little Nazgul has the most ear piercing screech known to man (or elf). He chooses to employ this screeching power at the precise moment after I've put my head down on the pillow and begin to drift off to la-la land. How does he know when this precise moment will be? Nazgul powers. He has them.

We desperately love our little Nazgul, but I'm actually starting to wonder if they make shock collars for babies. You know, the kind that gives a minor volt for barks, or Nazgul shrieks. Okay, so maybe that's not acceptable by society. Any other suggestions? A muzzle maybe?

*Side note: If you're confused by the other part of the title, Nazgul's big sister says MaZageen for magazine, and it just rolls off the tongue when paired with Nazgul. Must be all the zzzzzzzzz's (which have been stolen from a very exhausted Nazgul mommy :)

Haha maybe your nazgul was born into the wrong family, eh?? (Wink! Being deaf could actually help with the screeching part) or maybe there is a lesson for Kevin to learn?? (Pita chips crunching or Korbin's screaming?)

Amber said...

If you find shock collars for kids, let me know where I can get them. ...just sayin...
We have a screecher too. A screecher that doesn't think sleeping through the night is acceptable, ever. I think if she'd try it, just once, she might like it, but I can't convince her... HELP
