Won't You Be My Neighbor?

I have experienced a first today. The Sheriff came to my house. And he didn't do a cavity search!

But really! The sheriff came up my (1/3 mile long) driveway to ask if we have seen anything in the past few days. Our neighbor was robbed sometime in the past 36 hours (they were out of town) and the Sheriff was looking for clues. He even wrote down my name, number and address! Though, really, he was AT MY HOUSE. Couldn't he just have looked on my mailbox??

I digress.

What I really want to say is: WOO-HOO! WE ARE GETTING DEADBOLTS, BABY!!

I called Dustin to convey the info from the sheriff and check if he saw anything. Which he has not. But he decided once and for all that we need better "safety" in our house. Right now, you could get in with an old gift card and 2 hands. For realz.

Also, to add to the Reasons To Freak Out When It Gets Dark: Last night we were watching a movie in our bedroom, it was late (11 pm) and I was ready for bed but needed to bring the dog in. When I say ready for bed, I mean wearing very little clothing. Like 1 article. My right foot gets very cold. Don't judge. ANYWAY, when I stepped into the living room, the front door was STANDING OPEN. The dog was there kind of like, "It wasn't me!" Thankfully no one answered to my calls of, "Is anyone here?" Because then we would have had a real life horror film on our hands. And last night I just didn't have it in me to run through the fields being chased by a psycho redneck.

So today, my friends, I will be the owner of a SAFE house. One with bolts on the doors keeping the crazies out (or in, depending on your perspective). One where I can wear that one article of clothing confident my neighbors will see because I forgot to close the curtains and not because they broke in! A home where, if I get locked out wearing just a towel, I will actually have to call the police instead of use up-up-down-down-left-right-left-right-b-a-start.

I am so excited, I may even post PICTURES!!


  1. its up-up-down-down-left-right-left-right-b-a start ... n00b

  2. Sheesh. I fixed it, hope you didn't lose too much mouth-breathing sleep!

  3. You know, I lol'ed at this same story on Saturday, and I still lol'ed at reading it a few moments ago. Thanks for the advice on the fish, BTW. M's question was the result of paranoia over a certain yummy fish taco dinner from last night... He is fine and not botulism-ed at all no matter what he may think.

  4. And I thought LA could be scary...

  5. Geez, country livin' has turned into da hood. Better get bars on the windows. Sheesh.

    up-up-down-down-left-right-left-right-b-a start ROFLMAO!

    Also, wasn't it up-up-down-down-left-right-left-right-b-a-SELECT-Start ?


You have my undivided attention.
