Open Door Policy

The most-often committed crimes are theft and burglary – in my town, my county, the country, and probably the world. Crimes of convenience.

When the night is cool – in the 50s, say – I leave my bedroom window open. I wake up nervous at being vulnerable, leaving myself exposed, inviting a burglar (bad enough) or worse. To the cats’ chagrin, sometimes I panic and slam the window shut.

Not a summer passes that I don’t discover I’ve left a window open while I’ve been out all day – and ye gods sometimes I’ve forgotten to close and lock an entire door.

Good thing the criminals of convenience haven’t met my thief of memory.

You know. Yet.
