cops and surprises

there is never a dull day here at casa de schulman. we woke this morning after a night of little sleep and discovered the dog that had kept us up most of the night with its howling was in our neighbor’s backyard. the only problem with that was that we hadn’t seen our neighbors in several days. there was no food or water left out for the dog, so we filled a bowl with water and then went to the store to buy it some food.

later this afternoon, i looked out our bedroom window and saw our neighbor’s car. then, i saw her with three sheriff’s deputies. joe and i sat on the bed peering out the window and trying to see if we could tell what was going on. when they left, he went over to get our bowl and let our neighbor know we had fed the dog.

apparently, her boyfriend had brought the dog home from work, and the boyfriend is now the ex-boyfriend since there are warrants out for his arrest. yes, people, he’s been out of prison for three weeks and already is wanted. she said they got in a really big fight the other night and the neighbors across the street called the police. her ex-boyfriend “jumped out of the window” when the police arrived and fled. he’s now wanted for domestic violence and cruelty to children.

my neighborhood is better than an episode of jerry springer.

tonight, i took joe out for his birthday dinner and surprised him by inviting some of his friends, one of whom he hasn’t seen since our wedding. we had a great time, and he was totally surprised. however, our waiter was the worst one i’ve ever had. he dumped a pitcher of ice water on my foot and then walked off without an apology or an offer to bring me some napkins. then, he took my plate without asking if i was done (i like to pick at my food while i talk) and he brought everyone drink refills except for me. joe had to pointedly ask him about it. i can overlook the little things, but dumping the water on me really irked me. it was freezing. i would have been ok with it if he had apologized. but he didn’t.

now we’re off to eat some yummy chocolate mocha ice cream and watch some tv we dvr’d during the week. have a nice night!
