So I’m sitting up unable to sleep, and it’s been 30 minutes. I was woken up by someone knocking on my front door, which is unheard of. My front door is on the highway side and hasn’t been used in forever.
When I woke up, my heart was beating at an antelope’s pace. By the time I got myself situated enough, I called out tentatively, “hello” but there was no answer. The glare from my inside light blocked my view outside so I couldn’t see anything.
I debated what should I do, remembering all the horror stories of people trying to be good samaritans only to wind up as the next serial killer victim (Ted Bundy anyone?).
So I called the non-emergency number and asked them what to do. They recommended I keep the doors locked and wait for them to do a drive by.
I saw the blue and white flashing lights, so I know they drove by, but I’m still unable to get back to sleep so I thought I’d find out just how unreasonable I am behaving.
