This morning, I was still trying to wake up when I heard Mary Grace say, "Claire, it's important to protect the things that matter."
"Awww..." I thought. "That's awfully mature for a 3 year old."
Then she continued, "State Farm is always there...." and I was laughing too hard to hear the rest.
I think we need to go DO something today. All of this sitting in the house being fearful is going to turn my kids into zombies. I think I'd rather confront our mystery caller than have that happen.
And if you don't know what I'm talking about, it's because I took down the post I wrote about our mystery caller after our criminally-minded friend John e-mailed me with a list of the things he could ascertain about our home security situation from what I'd written. I had planned to remove it after about 24 hours, anyway, but his e-mail convinced me to step up that time frame.
Basically, the same guy has called us three times over 5 years, and from the things he says I get the feeling that he's trying to determine whether or not I'm home alone. It really creeps me out. These calls pre-date the blog, Facebook, and Twitter, so I have no reason to believe this is an online creep. Probably just a creep with a phone book...
So, anyway, we need to get out today. What are you going to do?
