You see a window. It is ajar.

You are in your own house. My, are you messy!

You hear the sounds of disapproval in the distance.

> what is a grue?

The grue is a sinister, lurking presence in the dark places of the earth. Its favorite target of disapproval is adventurers, but its insatiable disapproval is tempered by its fear of light. No grue has ever been seen by the light of day, and few have survived its fearsome disapprovals to tell the tale.

ladyviol:
This is from a game called Zork. Before all the Playstations and Xboxes of the world, we had text based games.
Wikipedia will be way more eloquent at explaining:

Hope that helps! :)
You can play online for free at

The same thought ran through my mind.
