It's a tiny town, and everybody knows what you been doin'

by Cecily
Random neighbor dude woke me up in the middle of the night by ringing the doorbell* repeatedly. At 2:30. My truck was parked on the next street over, and the lights were on. He was sorry to wake me, but wanted to let me know so I could turn the lights off and make sure the battery wouldn't be dead in the morning.

To clarify: when I say "random neighbor dude" I mean, I didn't recognize him. We haven't actually ever met, to my knowledge. And yet, he knows which house goes to my truck.

I haven't decided exactly how I feel about this. Famous? Important? Conspicuous? Flattered? Nervous? It's hard to say.

I didn't go turn the lights off because I was too asleep to function. Now the battery is presumably dead. Who wants to come help jump it?

*It makes the lights in my room flash on and off and the bed shakes. That's how.


  1. I would but I don't have a car. I also live in Australia. If you can wait til October--maybe we can work something out. P.S. I MISS YOU :)

  2. what doorbell do you use?

  3. it's a whole system thingy. AlertMaster! it's integrated alarm clock, phone, motion/noise detector, and doorbell. More worth it when I had a land line, and kind of expensive if you don't.
