This would go on until she reached out to pat him under the chin and behind the ears. He made a perfect alarm clock...too bad she couldn't set Romeo for 3 hours later each morning!

Starewolf

Created by: Banky

Pronunciation: stair-wulf

Sentence: Lynn gasped audibly as she opened her eyes, her reflection mirrored in twin dead reflecting pools, sanguine in the light from the alarm clock. She froze in place as fetid hot breath assaulted her nostrils. She tried to form the words to wake her husband, but they were lost in his cavernous snores. The beast opened its rancorous mouth and licked her full on across the mouth, and then bolted for the door. A mixture of chewed kleenex and rawhide dotted her cheek as she realized the starewolf was just the dogs needing to go out. Groaning when she saw the time, she rolled back over and pretended to accidentally elbow her husband in the face, feigning sleep as he dutifully rose to let the twin monsters out to sour the lawn with their feculence.

Etymology: stare + wolf; ala werewolf
