The trespasser.

He's tried to break in before. He'd been out drinking and stopped off for his usual feed in Abrakebabra in Phibsborough. On the walk home He turned off into Charleville Road and tried to climb over my locked gate.

He didn't trust that alone I slept that night, and wanted to catch me in an unwholesome act, given a recent precedent.

Happily for me He couldn't negotiate the climb, or the lock, as He was locked himself. I only learned of it later.

Yesterday the barrier to His entry broke and now there's nothing between me and Him but the window to my room and the door to the flat, easily flattenable. So I've called the locksmith, he's due any minute which could turn into days. I just hope it's fixed before He takes a drink again.

God here, I was doing my civic duty.

Just because someone doesn't wear a tracking device doesn't mean they shouldn't wear a tracking device.

Sarah - I hope that was ironic.

God - How are you keeping? Any craic?

I just wanted to say I like the new look at the top of the page.

And for heaven's sake, keep your door locked and get yourself a big dog.

Kath Lockett said...

Bloody hell Radge - maybe it *was* that enormous wooden pepper grinder you stole from the cafe, hid cunningly in your trousers that is now attracting drunk beasties at night?
