My Imagination

This is my imagination on steroids.

No sooner than I had clicked the publish button yesterday did my creepy visitor arrived back. I called the police again. This time the officer came inside to talk to me. Then he went to talk the stalker. Then the stalker came over and rang my doorbell.

I answered the door and he flashed his credentials. I told him I could save him the trouble of sitting out in the cold and if he was investigating me or anyone in my household I would happily answer any questions.

Turns out "Tom's" real name is Tim. He is indeed a PI, looking for a missing girl named Roz, with a boyfriend who has friends in this area. I told him how freaked out I was by his presence and that he cold clearly see my entire house. He apologized and agreed to park down the street, where I can still see him if I crane my neck just so, but he can't see me dancing nakie in front of my picture window.

Ahhh back to life as usual on The Avenue. Nothing gets past Mema. And never let it be said that I lose my sense of humor under duress.

That happened to me one time when the kids were really little. My son, at bedtime, said, "Mommy...someone is watching me through the window." Sure enough there was a creepy car outside of my house with a guy sitting in it. I put him to bed and kept watch over our mysterious visitor. Finally, hours later, I called the police. He was a PI also, investigating a domestic situation for my neighbors down the street. *sigh*

I'm back...wanted to share quick story...when my oldest turned 11, she had a slumber party. Around midnite, this group of about 6 girls decide to take on the night life and go outside. I awake to 6 screeching pre-teens...to learn a guy approached them in his car. I looked outside and saw the car sitting in front of the house. I called the police, by which time he was gone. A couple days later, same car spotted outside of elem. school...they picked the guy up for trying to abduct a kid.
Just thought I would share, so that next time...you will do the same thing cuz you just never know!

So I am guessing he DIDN'T look like Magnum. I am thinking if he did, you would have let him stay in his spot. Meanie. For the record, I would have done the same thing.

Good that you called the cops!

Melissa said...

He must not be a very good PI if you picked him up right away...I think you have just found yourself a new line of work, huh?

Jennifer Suarez said...

You have good police in your area. I'm glad they brought him to your door so you could feel better about the situation.

LOL @ TOF's picture. Little spy. Love it!

Jess said...

I would have been freaked, too. Then, after I found out he was legit it would drive me nuts wondering if he ever found the girl.

How sad that there may be a missed girl down the street. I would have called the police, too. You should give the PI your blog address, so he will have something to read while he sits and waits!

Miz Q said...

Ahhh I'm LOVING the TOF picture lol wish your peeping Tim caught that looking back at him! I'm imagining all the kids lined up at the window each with their own pair!!

Neighborhood watches don't work unless there are actually neighbors watching!! good job, Mema!

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

At least he's legit and you didn't need the Louisville Slugger after all. What a life he must lead as a PI. I hope he finds who he's looking for.

Amy Amy Bo Bamey said...

I wonder how many times the police have been called on him over the years. So better to be safe than sorry! That would have freaked my freak too!

Buddha's Place said...

I am so LMAO. Not at you, but at your writing...I would have thrown a couple of cuss words at him, just for scaring the bejesus out of me.

Betsy said...

Glad he was who he said he was... hopefully there isn't any real crazies stalking you.

Jenni Jiggety said...

That is VERY creepy!!! I'd be watching HIM to see who he is watching!

OHmommy said...

Whoa R. How scary. I am glad you figured it all out and things are back to normal. Cute pictures w/the post.

Lorie said...

Scary! I am glad you got that all worked out though!

Jean Stockdale said...

I am so sorry. I hate to hear what you are dealing with. I can only imagine how upsetting that is.

You just never know about strange cars parked where they don't belong...good that you called the police, and even better that they responded and it was a 'positive' outcome! ;)

When hubby and I were Resident Managers for student housing years ago, all the students were gone for the holidays, the townhouses were like a ghost town, and I wasn't feeling well so I didn't accompany my hubby to his band gig. As I was up late surfing the web, I saw a strange car parked in the parking lot - totally out of place, so I called the police. Turned out to be a drug dealer waiting for his customer(s).

Better safe than sorry! :)
