Screams in the night

Lauren woke me from a deep sleep, in the middle of the night.

"Bill? Bill?"

"What?"

"Did you lock the front door?"

"Yeah. I guess I did."

"Well I just heard someone outside yelling."

"Were they screaming 'Oh my God he has knife and is killing everyone'?"

"No."

"Then don't worry about it. Go back to sleep."

I rolled over and went back to sleep.

Did you then get hit in the head with a pillow & pushed to the floor? That's what would have happened in my bed!

LOL, that sounds like what my reaction would have been. We have so many teens in our neighborhood (and surrounding area) that a bit of noise outside isn't going to bother me.

OK, I changed my mind. I don't want to live in your neighborhood.

Yeah, it's all great until you wake up and read the news, and discover a massacre took place while neighbors slept and no one called the cops!

Kinda like the old mom-ism, "It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye."

I'm just sayin...

So did she twist your nipples when you rolled over and ignored her? If she did, you got lucky because I would have twisted something else.

You don't win the husband of the year award. Sorry, man.

That happened to me in college once, only a guy was attacking my friend, I called the cops.
What did the wife do next?
