i turned up the heat

it was cold in my office on tuesday so i turned on the heater at work. and it started a fire. well i thought it did. because of the smoke. turns out it was just a short in the heater in my office but we had to evacuate. so i took out some work and did it outside. the fireman asked if i started it. and i said maybe. which he thought was funny because i guess he was trying to make a joke? i said i may have been in the line of causation. so i almost died. but not really.i almost died once before. but not really. it was in dc. i woke up one day because my room was shaking. i thought that was strange. turns out a helicopter was circling my house. at some point i remembered i lived in a no fly zone (i totally recommend it-so quiet). anyway, there were also pentagon police in my yard so i knew i was probably in moderate danger. a cop asked us if our house was secure...i said no and asked him to conduct a search but he declined. but he did search my shed. i called my neighbors alex and alex to see if they knew who the suspect(s) were and what they were in for. alex was pretty nosy and knew everything in the neighborhood. but he and alex were in spain celebrating their anniversary. otherwise he would have known. anyway they apprehended a car jacking suspect in my neighbors backyard.

Your life is so exciting. I almost died once, but that's because I had a missionary companion who was fond of knives and hated me. I'm glad he let me live so a decade later I could read this blog and realize I need to make a change and insert some excitement in my life.

By the by, we (I) missed you at church, I was already to talk about, what else, diet coke and possibly try to get Becky to get her records also turned over to our ward.

jefe i missed you too. but i sort of missed baby prop guy and creepy starey guy more. did they ask about me???

Jefe said...

Nope, but they've joined forces, they were both sitting together in the EQ. I think their too intimidated to approach Lee or I about you individually. Starry guy was touching and feeling a girl in GD however I'm unclear if it's uncomfortable, border line inappropriate SS flirtation, or legit love. I totally know you could take her though.

there are far too many "it's because you're so hot" fabulously cheesy lines i could use here...i can't even choose one

Oh man. That's all very crazy. It's good for me to know for sure that you are an arsonist, though.

natali said...
