I FREAKED OUT
I don't know what happened or who it was. Sally started barking when she heard them the second time and I don't know if they heard her and realized someone was home, or what happened. But I was terrified. Last week, a man from Provo city came (not in any official clothing or anything) and knocked on the door asking who all lived here and that kind of business. I didn't think much of it, but Randal asked if he actually worked for the city and that I should have asked for ID. I think that freaked me out and had me primed to be more scared. Also, this older teenage boy has been sitting on our curb outside our house with his hood on the past few nights. We asked him what he was doing and he just told us he was using the internet. Our internet is blocked, but I'm sure he could pick it up from the neighbors or something. He said he lives in the apartments down the road. It was kinda sketchy. Now, it could have just been someone dropping something off (I did find a little handout thing on the front door), but what makes me question it is that they ran to the back door. People don't realize that we even have a back door with a separate basement apartment, and they didn't leave anything on that door. I'm not sure who it was, but it scared me pretty good.
I texted Randal that I called the cops on our landlord and that I had his gun ready to use it but that I don't know how to uncock (if that is even the real word) it. He told me to put it in a drawer and not touch it until he gets home. haha. I would have never thought my first reaction would be to grab his gun, but I guess it's good to know I'm not as scared of it as I thought! I'm kind of more open to the idea of getting my own gun now. I should at the very least learn how to properly use one.
And if I had a gun that looked like this, maybe it wouldn't be so intimidating?
