Soon we are residing our house and I'm arguing with Jared to build a "bump out" or portico on the front door so we have a little mudroom before someone can come into our house.
This conversation started when an unmarked red pick up truck parked in my long driveway by the door and a man I didn't recognize inside. I got sweaty and nervous. Put on my hat (no idea why!), grabbed my cell phone with 911 programmed in it, and my scissors. A man knocked on the door and I asked who it was first. It was the siding guy. Phew! I IM'd Jared about the quote and reiterating why I want the bump out.
Here is how our conversation on IM just went:
Wow, just wow. I'm sure he has a point but I just want to feel safe in my own home. What is this world coming to?
