Giving me the jeepers!
The time I was almost scared to death.
Let me set the scene.
The players…my gorgeous daughter.
And my sweet girl Salem.
Also, my husband was in on this “plan”.
See how in this photo, the chair has it’s back to the windows. Those windows are the back door. Straight in front the chair is the front door. So, if say…I was SITTING in that chair. I could not see the backdoor, but I could see the front door. And really? I don’t have to worry. The dogs go ballistic when someone comes to the door. Anyone! Even me.
So, imagine me in the chair pictured above. I am watching TV and minding my own biz. The dogs are lounging (remember I have three). Then, they set off to the front door, but not barking. I thought maybe Jason and Sydney got home, they had dropped the little kids at their mom’s. Is it possible they knew it was them and didn’t bark? A miracle!
Turns out they were just doing recon. They just kinda stood around, and didn’t seem to “sense” any presence. My biggest dog, Salem, turns around from the front door to the back door and immediately her hair STANDS ON END. And she starts barking like I have never heard her bark in my life. It’s like paws down, back up, and every muscle tense in fight mode. Her bark is at full roar.
In my mind, I thought… OH MY GOSH, she is barking like someone is at the back door.
That’s when I turn around and I SEE FACES at the backdoor.
I, nearly, lost it.
It was just Sydney.
Laughing at me while I clutched my chest about to keel over.
And that is the time I was MOST startled in my life.
Someday…..I’m going to get them back for that.
