I just put this up on my blog but thought it would be comical for yall. I think my one complaint about Mike is how paranoid he gets. I think his big issue is that I leave wet towels all over, don't replace the toilet paper, and hate all things cleaning related. So with that background you should be able to laugh about this like I am looking back.
Yesterday was a fairly lazy day for Mike and I. We got some much needed sleep, worked on cleaning out the fridge, and watched some random tv. I think I spent from noon to 5pm watching National Geographic Channel’s Locked Up Abroad. I am just fascinated by that show. For most of the episodes naive people get conned into drug trafficking and then end up caught and jailed in third world countries in horrible conditions.Yesterday was much of the same.
Mike spent less than half of that time watching with me but it was enough to ring the alarm bells. Around 4pm we had our doorbell ring. With the way our windows are situated you can’t look down and see the door and see who is there. So rather than going in the kitchen and leaning over and looking down to see the gate at the front door, Mike goes into secure the house mode. He rounds me and the dogs up and make us stay upstairs as he grabs his gun and walks down to check out who is at the door. Paranoid much? Umm yeah I think someone is….
Luckily the USPS delivery man/woman just left the box (from drugstore.com – notice the attempt at irony) at the door and went back to their car and the rest of their route. Had they been around and seen Mike with his gun we probably wouldn’t have mail service come Monday. Part of me thinks he was hoping it was our ***** of a neighbor so he could intimidate said person for always harassing us.
So lesson learned: Mike cannot watch Locked Up Abroad with me. I will be taping future episodes and watching alone while he plays with the X Box or is out of the house.
