The ominous drums

1. We watched The Fellowship of the Ring last weekend with 11-year-old Ethan.
2. Ethan bought a Fellowship game for his Gamecube on Saturday and played it as much as we'd let him.
3. I went to bed that Saturday night with visions of orcs and goblins dancing in my head.
4. About midnight, I heard a faint drumming. Da-dumm, da-dumm, da-dum da-dum, repeated, then a random pause, then it would start up again. I thought maybe Ethan had snuck downstairs to play his new game, but I was too tired to go look.
5. I heard it again when I woke up in the morning, so I went downstairs to look....and it was our hamster, Marigold, pushing her new exercise wheel.
