Now, I think I have a fairly good sense of humor. I don't think I take things too seriously and I can laugh at most things that might seem a little off color. However, I will now tell you a disturbing tale of mystery, fright and most of all freaking annoyance.
Last night at around 10:45 I decided to get ready for bed. April and I were the only ones home and she was already in her room (which by the way, is at the front of the house - important fact for this story). When all of a sudden I hear someone on our porch. I freeze in place trying to hear if it is Brooke or Mackenzi trying to get in. But no. All I hear is rustling and all of a sudden, April flings open her door and says, "I hear someone in the bushes." Now, you can only imagine the horror that two singles girls feel as their imaginations run wild as they picture some freak breaking into their house.
We both stood there frozen listening to what was going on outside. There was a loud bang at the door and we ran into April's room and locked the door behind us. April, having already taken out her contacts, couldn't see for s*^#. So, we creep over to the window and we see a guy dressed in dark sweats and a hoodie pulled over his head. He is ripping open our bags of leaves and running up to our porch.
April and I stand frozen peering through the blinds. The Ass outside our house (and yes, I capitalize the word Ass because it is what I have now named this unknown man) looks up and sees me. He continues to rip open one more bag and run up to our door. It was too dark outside for me to identify who he was. And again, April pretty much couldn't see anything.
I get a unknown serge of courage and decide I am going to open our front door and chase the Ass off. I opened the door and found this:
Are you effin' kidding me? Ok, yes, at first we might have laughed and took some pictures for the blog, but when reality set in and we discovered that our entire yard had been trashed - it is then that I became pissed... and scared.
We only saw one guy. One single guy!!! Who would do that? Was it a total stranger? Or was it one of our friends? And if it was one of our friends, he certainly isn't my friend anymore. Toilet papering I can handle. Fireworks and I handle. Stupid pranks are more than likely very funny. But when you scare two innocent girls and trash their yard - that is when it isn't funny. So, if you are the Ass that trashed our yard, consider yourself warned. I am not scared to use my pepper spray (which I will buy at Home Depot today).
Oh, and side note: Our poor little neighbor heard all this commotion and called the police. They showed up 10 minutes after the guy ran off.
