Invasion... While In The Shower
Yeah, I know. I just had to go there.
I'm one of those lucky people who can always get things to happen by performing a simple action: getting in the shower.
If I'm waiting for a call from my doctor's office all I have to do is be in the middle of soaping up my hair and the phone will ring.
If the exterminator is coming over he'll only be early if I get in the shower.
If I've been trying to get JD to call me back for two hours he'll only have time the second I step in the shower.
If my cats are going to break anything they always wait until I get in the shower so they can increase my anxiety by at least four times.
For instance. Two weeks ago I get in the shower. About five minutes into it I hear a horrible crash of breaking glass and pounding and banging. I jump out of the shower, peak my head around the corner and there is a lamp and small table knocked over and glass from a vase that used to be on that table strewn all over the floor and two VERY guilty looking kittens staring up at me with terrified little eyes.
It scared the CRAP out of me.
It's just the way it goes around me.
In those threads titled "Do You Carry At Home?" the common answer is "If I'm not in bed or in the shower, my gun is with me," or "Putting my gun on is part of getting dressed."
Well, let's say you are as unlucky as I am and if it's going to happen it's going to happen in that instance where you are almost as vulnerable as if you were sleeping (if not more vulnerable).
Your hearing is impaired because you have the noise of the water drowning out a good portion of what you would normally hear. You are blind because your eyes are closed while the soap is in them. You are naked and unarmed and home alone. The S has taken this opportunity to HTF.
For sake of an scenario, lets say that two men break into your home.
What do you do?
