Freaky

the other day I bought a pillow from ikea. Later that night around 11:30 I remembered I had left it in the trunk of my car. Since my car is parked right next to the recycling bin, I thought i'd save some effort by unwrapping my pillow right there. Ikea rolls those pillows pretty tight so I was struggling with it for a few minutes. Suddenly a man comes running at me from behind a house shouting. before I even knew what was happening he started apologizing by saying, "oh man, so sorry, I thought you were this burglar who came and stole my bike the other night. I thought you were him. I heard someone back here and I was gonna catch him this time"
It happened so fast I didn't even have time to freak out. I was just stunned there holding my half unrolled pillow tube.

I finally met one of my neighbors.

  1. Now you have time to freak out. That shows you how fast you need to be to get a Street Smart Awareness award.
