Every morning I walk my dog Gilmore, we walk around the neighborhood, saying hello to the regular neighbors that we see. Gilmore barks at the same ones every time. I apologize. Then one day I heard a strange noise coming from a garage as I passed by. Gilmore was also very nervous around this particular house. For weeks, I would pass this house hear the noise, try to figure out what it was then walk on. Then one day I decided, what if someone was trapped, what if they had been kidnapped and I was just strolling by everyday ignoring their quiet plea for help. So this morning, I got the courage to face the evil that could be waiting for me. As Gilmore stared at me and wanted to flee, I investigated. While I was investigating I was spotted by my neighbor Yuki. She asked if I was looking to see the chickens. Relief swept over me. Thank God, there wasn’t a kidnap victim but a chicken coop. As I climbed down from my neighbor’s garage, I tried to explain why I was being sneaky instead of just ringing the bell. My neighbor Yuki, walked away and yelled back at me to stop watching Criminal Minds. I laughed and realized, great now I’m the crazy neighbor.
Seriously though, I’m so glad it was a chicken coop!
