I found out something today that absolutely has gotten me quite frightened. On Tuesday the drugstore a house over from mine was robbed at knife-point. I had known about the robbery but did not know about a weapon being used. Fortunately noone was injured but here is the scariest part of all. I went out back and my neighbor came over and said, where were you Tuesday? That was the day I went for my interview. Anyway apparently the two thieves were actually parked in my back yard! They apparently staked out the pharmacy from my backyard that morning!
When they were caught they were getting into their car and in their haste, tore up my grass with trying to get traction to pull away. Apparently the police and task force officers were all over my yard looking for evidence. My neighbor said that they knocked on my door several times and were going to gain entry until they realized my car was not there. Alot of things went through my head like what if they would have come to my house and what could have happened.
I have to tell you guys not alot creeps me out but I will tell you that I will be nervous for awhile. I was sitting here thinking how close something bad came to me then I remembered something else. On Tuesday my friend and I went to my interview and then shopping. We were about to get on the highway to go home and I had to stop and get gas. Apparently on the same highway we were on just about a mile down, there was a terrible accident. Thinking back to that time and day, I really get scared. Then I find out yesterday that a woman had been killed in that accident!
I dont know if I feel fortunate or fear impending misfortune. But then I remembered that I live with the doom everyday why should anything change.
Well going back out to do yard work.
