I’ve got to make this quick. There is an intruder in my house and I am petrified.
Last night I was awakened from a snooze in front of the fire to the frantic yapping of Lucky Dawg and Rebel – they had detected something foreign in my home office (where I keep their dog food bowls).
Yesterday I had a yard crew over to clean and mulch my garden and we inadvertently left the front door open for several hours. A herd of buffalo could have waltzed in for all I know.
I got my protectors out of the office and slammed the door – securing it all around the perimeter with masking tape. It was too late to call for help and no way was I going to deal with this by myself.
Today, I ripped off the tape and gingerly entered my office. I raced across to my computer. Whatever it is seems to be lurking behind my armoire. There. I heard it – a thump. I’m hoping it’s a big roach. I’m taping the door back up until I can get someone over here to flesh him out. In the meantime I’m going to rent my neighbor’s cat.
I had a wonderful story to post about my cooking school yesterday, but it will have to wait – maybe indefinitely. EIIIIK – it’s scraping something across the floor…I’m outa here!
