I think there might be something seriously wrong with me…...(no comments from the peanut gallery, please!)
Here’s one reason why.
As I sit at my desk in the studio I can see out the front window. I can see my neighbor’s house across the street. I watch their comings and goings…..nothing very interesting. Going to work (I assume) grocery shopping, walking the dog. Just run of the mill stuff.
Until last week when I saw the male neighbor, let’s call him Doug, put out a mattress and box spring for the garbage men to pick up (upside down I might add!!) I also noticed I hadn’t seen his wife, let’s call her Sandra, in the last few weeks. Her car was there but I hadn’t seen her tending to her plants on the front porch like usual, or coming and going from work. Hmmmm……
My imagination started to bubble. Had Doug killed her and was throwing out the bloodied mattress to get rid of the evidence. Seems unlikely he would put it out for the garbage men but sometimes hiding in plain sight is the best way to hide!
Then came the U-Haul truck! Aha! What a brilliant way to get rid of the body!!!!! Nobody would think to question that! It sat in the driveway for two days. Plenty of time to clean up the scene of the crime!
My imagination was swirling……then their daughter came home.
Apparently she finished grad school and was moving out….. she hadn’t really been living at home since she went off to college. Just comes and goes occasionally for holidays.
I have to admit I was kinda’ disappointed. Well, not really. I’m glad Doug hasn’t killed his wife….but it WAS an interesting few days there…..
