I woke up kinda late (around 6:55), and decided I wanted breakfast. I bought Fruity Pebbles last week, and couldn't wait to have a bowl. I sat down in the living room and turned on the TV to reminisce and watch Saved By The Bell.
Side note: This year marks 20 years since Mark-Paul Gosselaar began playing Zack Morris. Wow.
So, I sat on the couch, and got enthralled in the episode about the Dating Auction (you know, it's the one where the fat girl puts up $100 to go to the spring dance with Zack... irony, no?)
When I looked up, it was 7:18!
Here's some math:
I need 25 minutes to get ready.
I'm supposed to be at work at 8:00am.
I have at least a 45 minute commute.
So... basically, this wasn't gonna work out. :)
When I realized what time it was, I jumped in the shower. I was on the final rinse of my hair when I heard my front door slam.
Another note: My roommate is in OHIO.
My heart sank to my toes. All my fears, ('cause I am a big giant 'fraidy cat) suddenly started to gather momentum to reality.
I was thinking to myself, "just be quiet. Get out of the shower slowly. Don't make alot of noise". Apparently I thought the "intruder" wouldn't have heard me turn the shower off?
All of the sudden I heard, "Jenn... it's ________"
And I immediately slammed the bathroom door 'cause I was naked.
So tonight, I will be changing the locks on both the front and back door.
I know that people have keys to my house, and I don't mind.
But y'all... 7:22 in the morning is NOT THE APPROPRIATE TIME TO JUST COME ON IN.
In the person's defense, they did call me, apparently right after I got in the shower, and then ten minutes later (after they'd left) to apologize for scaring the ba-hootie-hoo out of me. I did text them back, but the damage was already done.
Here are some lessons:
- If someone doesn't answer your phone call at say 7:22am, give them the benefit of the doubt. Maybe they can't come to the phone. They could be drying their hair. They could be in the shower. They could be in a coma.
- If someone doesn't answer ten phone calls over a period of two days, maybe you should call the cops.
- If someone doesn't answer the phone, let's say at 7:22am, and you have a key to their house, Don't Come In.
- Unless the aforementioned TWO DAYS has passed. And then you still need to be wary.
Thank God I don't. I would probably have hurt myself more than any intruder.
