1:13 am

the house alarm goes off as I'm sound asleep. I've often thought about what I would do if it went off in the middle of the night and how I would instantly go into attack/survival mode: call 911, grab my mace in the nightstand, rush the animals out onto the deck, and then grab my cell phone (in case the phone lines were cut) and speed dial my next door neighbors, Frank and Jenny who are always home. Hell I'd probably even call Betty too just to make sure she's safe and on the look out.

But that didn't happen.

The alarm goes off, animals climb on top of me panting (Wrigs) and screeching (Chum) while I just lay frozen in bed, staring at the bedroom door like a deer in headlights.


Turns out all was ok, but I never got out of bed and I never went back to sleep.

Ninja warrior, I am not.

Going to be an interesting day...

This doesn't apply to this post, but I saw this t-shirt on threadless. It reminds me of you.

Always thinking ahead! I leave the keys in the car in case I have to jump in and make a get away with the animals.

I think it was just a non-ninja week for you. I definitely have nights when I'm ready to fight a fugitive if one was to break in.
