So there was a little excitement around my place last night. Thankfully, I missed it all since I was hanging out with friends on the other side of town.
My roommate texted me after I hadn’t been there that long as said the police were telling everyone to stay inside because they were hunting for a man with a gun who had shot at police. Naturally, they had the condo complex completely closed down as well.
Then one of my friends got an update about that on her iPhone.
I texted my roommate off and on all evening. Turns late at night, they still weren’t letting anyone in. So I crashed with my friends. Turns out about the time I would have gotten home, they started letting people in, so I would have been okay, but I had no way of knowing that at the time. And sleeping on a hide-a-bed was a much better alternative than sleeping in my car, or trying to, which would be what happened if I got there and they still weren’t letting anyone in.
The scary part is, they never have found the guy, or if they have I haven’t heard about it. But I’m sure he’s long gone by now. At least if he’s smart he is.
Fortunately, I was already going to be late to work today since I had to get my allergy shots. I got up, drove across town to shower and get ready for work, and then drove back to get my shots before driving to work. Made for a crazy morning, but it all got done.
It certainly made me very thankful for friends who are offering me a place to stay before I even ask. Granted, I knew what the answer would have been if I had asked. It really is such blessing to have friends like that.
