For 15 minutes, I’ve been listening to someone

trying to break in my back door.

Clanking, rattling, thuds, spitting, hissing,

Forgot I was boiling eggs and nearly ran the pot dry.

Not my house but I did take the picture. It’s from my Wilmington NC collection as are most of cool old houses on my site.

    • Yes, the egg salad was good. I’m addicted to the stuff. I would bathe in it if it didn’t stink so badly. At first hearing the racket—I just thought Mr D was home for something cause our back door blinds clang when you come and go. Then he never showed up in the living room and I got scared. Then I got brave enough to research why the fool person was taking so long to break in….

  1. Reminds me of the time my brother and I heard someone ransacking my aunt’s kitchen (my brother and I were spending a week visiting my cousins). Turned out to be the very clever cats, who had worked themselves into a cabinet filled with pots and pans. I felt kind of dumb the next morning. Glad your intruder was just eggs!
