Goodbye my "friend"

Dear Cricket,
It was with a heavy heart that we had to part last night. I know you and your friends love to visit our house. I understand that with the wood floors and the high ceilings that the accoustics are fantastic. I totally get that. I heard it myself last night. I understand that you love to tease me. Like when I get out of bed to find you, immediately you quit chirping. Then when I sit back in bed you begin again. I know, I know, it is VERY funny. Or when you think it is funny to be silent all night, until I decide to go to bed! I understand that you like for me to sleep with my head smushed under my pillow! Again, very funny. Last night I think the funny factor stopped at 4:30 in the morning. I no longer was interested in listening to you or your friends "play". You thought you would be so sneaky, hiding in the corner of the stairs. Last night I just happened to be a little trickier! Let your tragic end be a lesson to your friends! My house is not accepting any applications for new crickets. Although I have heard the house down the street, the one with the bat hanging around out front, is currently taking applications! Thank you for the relationship we have shared, I hope the bottom on Neil's shoe was tasty!

Thank you

Management

Pretty funny! And yes, we take crickets. They don't last long, though (thanks to the bat...) =D

Looks like you have written letters like these before. At least the cricket wasn't trying to commit sucide off the third story balcony! Do you remember that?
