Breaking and entering
July 3, 2011
Shut myself out
Because today, one of my biggest fears came true: I accidentally shut myself out of the house. And with no spare key to be found, a long afternoon on the cold sidewalk lay ahead of me. Longingly I looked through our kitchen window, and rang our door bell. But what do you know: there was nobody home. Those modern stay-at-home-moms are always out!
Luckily I payed close attention when I watched McGyver, and The A-team, and I decided to take a page from their book and get creative! With a little garden shovel I managed to wrench the garden gate open, so I could get into our garden. I knew our bedroom window was wide open, and excitedly I grabbed our ladder and started climbing.
Alas! Either the ladder or I, was way too short. My eye fell on the mini trampoline, but I knew: even with a trampoline I won't be able to jump twelve foot into the air, and then dive into our bedroom. Not without a whole lot of Tena Lady anyway.
Screw the trampoline: I'll use screw drivers
Then inspiration struck again: we have a lot of screw drivers in our garden shed. I hurried down my ladder and ran into the garden shed where I grabbed a bunch of screw drivers. Then I ran back to the kitchen window and started to unscrew the safety latch of the windows. I felt this pleasant rush of adrenaline. Breaking and entering is a real high!
Part two of my masterplan
With the window sabotaged, it was now time for part two of my masterplan. I pushed my head through the window, and wriggled the rest of me inside too. Triumpantly I set foot on our kitchen floor, and to celebrate I put on the kettle for a nice cup of tea.
But not before I looked up a security company in the yellow pages, because obviously: the security around our house is abysmal! Anybody can get in!
