As I got older and wiser I came to realize the reality of it was she was playing with me. I’m sure she knew exactly what she was doing to me and I’m sure she enjoyed every minute of watching me squirm. In retrospect, I wouldn’t change a thing. It was one of my most memorable and enjoyable learning experiences that provided many enjoyable thoughts many times over. Still does! I had just accepted a new job and moved to a new city. I rented a small house in a slightly questionable neighborhood. I had met a couple of my neighbors , and they gave me tips on who to avoid in the neighborhood. All in all, things were going smoothly. Until they weren’t.
I was catching up on my sleep on a Saturday morning I was jolted from my sleep by the phone ringing, and insistent banging on the front door , then on the back door , then on various windows of the house. I jumped up and wrapped the sheet around me. ( at that time in my life I slept in the nude). Before I could get to either door, I heard someone yell “Open the door! Police. The house is surrounded!” At that time someone kicked in my back door, and was pointing a gun at me. He insisted I put my hands in the air.
