I know I know, I brought it upon myself. I was the crazy chick who waiting in line for 3 hours an hour or just to see the midnight showing of Harry Potter. I completely admit it.
I did NOT however intend to stay up til 4am because my loving husband who failed to use common sense forgot that I didn't have a key to the deadbolt lock and locked me out of the house last night.
As if this was not embarrassing enough...my cousin had decided to spend the night so she wouldn't have to drive an hour and a half at 3am to get home. So now there were TWO people locked out of my house.
My neighbors must have thought there was a crazy lunatic breaking into my house. The idiot who sleeps harder than any other human being I know lovely man failed to wake up to the sound of his phone, thus I was forced to pound gently knock on the door hoping someone would hear. I failed.
We then tried to break in through the window, it was locked. (It's NEVER locked...seriously...why is it locked the one and only time I'm locked out of the house at 3:45am?)
So I took my homemade flashlight (AKA Cell Phone) and worked my way into the back yard, (Have I ever told you I have a woodchuck living in my back yard? No...another time then) being careful not to upset the wild life. When I got to the back slider, which unfortunately was ALSO locked...sigh... I again began to bang as hard as I could knock a little bit harder. No luck.
So I threw something at my sons window...hoping it would wake him. No chance. (these boys sleep like rocks I tell ya!)
Back to the front. Knock again a LOT little bit louder, hoping I am not waking the neighbors. FAIL
I tried to throw pebbles at my bedroom window, but quickly found out this was useless.
Back to the back yard, knock some more.
Return to the front yard, tried the window again.
Back...front..back...tried calling his phone again...front...UGH
Then I look down at my keys, ready to submit to two hours a night of sleeping in my car... and the most obvious thing in the world dawns on me...THE CAR ALARM!!!! (Sorry surrounding neighbors...I was desperate!) I tried it once...no luck...SERIOUSLY. I knocked on the door again. (I don't know why!) Finally, with my last OUNCE of desperation (and knowing I am about to see the cops round the corner at any point now!) I try the car alarm one more time. (Have I mentioned that my cousin is cracking up at me the entire time?)
Finally, at 4AM, from the window above, as if it were Juliet speaking to Romeo...wait...that's not how it worked!....from the window above, my husband says, "What do you want?"
Why yes, the window HAD indeed been open the entire time, and NO, he had not heard any of the commotion going on below!
My house is incredibly safe. I do not fear any burglars breaking in anytime soon!
We REALLY need to find the key to the dead bolt
My husband is not a reliable source when calling my house in the middle of the night in ANY type of emergency...next time I leave with the phone on TOP of his head!
