Friday night, I was awakened by the cat.
"Some cops are arresting a guy in a truck right in front of our house", she said, standing over me, all big-eyed.
"Really? What for?", I groggily replied.
"I dunno. They handcuffed the driver and put him in the back of one of the cop cars. There's a woman in the passenger seat. A K-9 unit just arrived", she continued.
"Ah, must be drugs then", I logically concluded while speaking with a cat.
Slowly, my body and mind merged, and I realized Chaco was doing the talking while the cat just hung out in the crook of his arm. Otherwise, I'd start thinking those were darn good drugs out there.
Saturday morning, the drug truck was still there, right in front of our house. Large red Ford F-150 with a cap. I hadn't bothered to get out of my warm bed while getting updates from the cat the night before. I wonder what the neighbors thought.
"Drug bust? At the AbbyNormals? Hmmm..."
It's not so hard to imagine, really. After all, we have no Christmas decorations up. Sure sign of a drug operation, right? *SIGH*
Actually, we DO have some lights UP, they're just not LIT up. Wiring obstacles. I've left it to the menfolk to handle the decorating of the exterior of the house. Me? On the roof? HaHaHaHaHa!
So there are unlit light bulbs tastefully bordering our roof. If they were lit up, it might be pretty. In the meantime, thanks to our trucked in friends, we are the neighborhood drug house. At least someone eventually came and retrieved the drug truck, but probably not until the damage to our reputation was done.
So today! Today, I will get this all reconciled. Nature has gifted us with our first snow day of the year! There's not much accumulation yet, but it's nasty windy out - blizzardness - snow is falling horizontally. I was so happy to not have to be at the crosswalk I went out there (??) to capture a photo of where I didn't want to be. The things I do for this blog...
I actually made a video too, but it's pretty boring. Just imagine the wind a-whipping through your ears, those traffic lights doing their Snow Day Happy Dance, and a few disgruntled commuters slogging by like turtles.
My afternoon tutelage is also cancelled, so I've got the WHOLE DAY to finally get the house ready for Christmas! There might even be time left over to set up a meth lab.
