I had a dream the other night that I was sitting in my tv room at night when I hear this banging coming from the back door. I stand up and stare at it from the middle of the tv room. There's a deep male voice on the other side of the door talking to someone or something. All of a sudden the door cracks, as if he's trying to kick it down.

That morning I woke up and found out that my neighbor two houses down had their door kicked in by a burglar. Coincidence? The next day, the same was done to the house next to me (the house inbetween mine and the one that was originally kicked in). My parents have been out of town and when they are, I spend the night at Ira's because why would I want to stay there alone at night if I don't have to? But what keeps me up at night is what if I get that call that somebody has broken in to my home? My sanctuary? The place where I'm supposed to feel safe? Yet, I don't want to be home in the off chance that someone tries to break in when I am there by myself.

I wish you didn't have to be 21 to own a pistol in Washington.
