lame end to a day

so, woody worked late tonight and georgia and i invited ourselves over to jenny (also, super cute photo of young, skinny me from back in the day posted on her site recently) and phils house for dinner to hang out and have the kids play with each other. good times, and freaking amazing food (jenny made this bacon, potato, onion, green bean dish that was TO DIE FOR). so, we head back about 8ish, and get a call from woody just as we were getting to our neighborhood and asks if i had noticed the pool earlier. i said that i had, and why, to which he said 'was all of out furniture in it then?' um...what? (1. does he think i would not call him immediately if it had been, lol, and 2. what furniture? i was thinking my dining table, etc) so, he says that he just went to get in the pool and saw all of the patio furniture, my bike (can you believe???), and some of the planters as well as the overhead light from the patio all in the pool. by this time we are pulling into the driveway and i go look at what happened. i suppose i should have taken a photo, but i didnt, so wev. turns out none of the neighbors were home to see anyone get into the yard (the gate is always unlocked, so it wouldnt really be difficult to get in, although josh, the across-the-street neighbor with the cool old truck brought over a lock for us to use until i go buy one) and the police wont file a report if there is no permanent damage done. anyhoo, i wonder if they had to stop because woody came home, as they left planters that were much closer to the pool, as well as the barbecue grill and the large table and wheelbarrow. so, yeah, im tired now, those chairs are HEAVY when theyre all soaked with water.

Sorry Sara. That's really lame. And random.

Monticore said...

That is too crazy to believe. Those are some hardcore lil pranksters. Did you take a picture?

Uncle Skip said...

You have my deepest sympathies... I mean really.
Whoever did this is obviously so wrapped up in themselves that they didn't even consider that others might be involved. Please pray for them.

Those damn kids!

Wait. It might have been your across the street neighbour. He was the only one home, after all. Then he gave you the lock to cover up his guilty role in the whole affair. AHA!

You didn't even mention that on the phone yesterday! No wonder you sounded tired! That is horrible. Probably some lame teenagers who years from now will finally feel guilt about being so disrespectful.

Lisa said...

lol Sara... Look at the bright side everything in clean now and very clorinated. There is always a silver lining. A pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Permanent damage: rust? mildew?

For the planters: were there plants in them? Plants probably don't like being soaked in chlorine -- killed the plants?
