I was on my front porch yesterday and a car pulled up and out jumped a man. He came towards me saying IMPD (Indiana Metro Police Department) and flashing his badge and I thought ‘this is it – I am being arrested for Atheism’ but no – he said he was going to sit outside the house for a while in the unmarked car to see if he could catch thieves who were stealing parcels off porches.
There is a lot of this around here – as well as other theft and car break ins. Our area is not particularly gritty but the grittiness starts a few blocks away and we feel the effects.
The people over the road have got a really big wreath with lights on it. This is just to shame me. I may sneak over there one night and set it alight.
I did another run to Costco yesterday because you just cannot have too much wine or kitty litter. You can buy a car from Costco now – it won’t be long and they will be selling houses. I got overexcited when I was there and bought underpants and sox. There are lots of things I could have bought but don’t need and I find it difficult to restrain my self.
