Addendum: Last Laugh

` Hours after my last post, when I had come back to my apartment, I immediately hung up my coat (which contains my keys) and got off to dish-washing because I'd been lazy earlier in the day.
` When I returned to my room, I found that my door was locked!
` ...Yes, the lock bolts every time you close the door - I had not noticed this earlier. That was bad. Really bad. Especially since I never had gotten around to forcing my windows open.

` Concerningly, I'd found that they are very easy to open from the outside, though they are still impossible to open from the inside.
` I don't understand why.
` However, I remedied this situation by buying window-clamps. Yay! Now, if I accidentally lock myself out of my apartment, I'll be screwed for sure!

` In addition to my riveting closet-apartment news; Lou Ryan used his superpowers to assemble my shelves while they were on vacation at his house! They really make my 7x12 space seem like an entire 8x12!

` ...If that wasn't enough, he has sent Darryl back to the house to set up more booby traps.
` Okay, not really. He's actually working hard to remodel the upstairs.

` ...Unfortunately, I have been too under-the-weather again this 32-day period (!) to spend most of my time out of the house. That means I have to listen to his circular saw, power drill and radio all day whether I'm trying to sleep or not.
` But hey, at least there will be more tenants to badger Wayne about housing conditions. In fact, two more downstairs rooms have become occupied in the past few days!

i always hide keys, for everything. house, car you name it, just because i lose my keys all the time. I try not to but anymore its just a given. Now i always have a backup and much less grief because of my absent mindedness.

` I used to do that. And then I hid my mind.... I've never been able to work out where it could possibly be. Perhaps it wandered off.
