Chapter Seventeen: The Pound

20 Jul
BTW when you are done reading this chapter. If you think thinking is fun; if you think philosophy should be for everyone try reading  TheMapThinker.com

My Mom is in the hospital but we are going to keep posting once a week.                         Thank you for enjoying.  

 

 

 

I thought it would be easy. It was even easier than I thought. Except for a couple of minor details.

Wow. In an age when everything you do is on video, when if you go to commit a crime you had better leave your personal, registered, cell phone at home, there are places that don’t have any modern protections at all. Places you can break into with impunity. Either because they have never been broken into before or because of poor funding.

Naturally, just because it is the modern age and you can never be too sure of anything, I parked a long ways away, in a movie theater parking lot, and hiked to the animal shelter. I was dressed in dark clothes with a hood pulled low. I dressed so I looked fatter than I am. It would be very hard to tell my real weight, age, or sex, even from a picture.

Only my height. Very hard to conceal how tall you are. You can, with baggy clothes, bend your knees a bit and hunch your back a little, look both shorter and chubbier than you really are.

My hands were wrapped and big heavy work gloves pulled over them. They weren’t just to hide my fingerprints. They also allowed me to break a window out of the back without my having to hunt up a rock or carry a useful object like a hammer. Happily that part worked as planned.

Unhappily I had not counted on the din the animals would begin the minute I made a sound.

Fortunately the animal shelter was on the outskirts of town, where property was cheaper, and no one paid any attention. Even so I spent a horrific time hiding under a bush.

Finally the coast was clear. I broke the window and went in. They had a big safe. I was worried about how to break into it. Fortunately they were lazy. Most people can be counted on to be lazy. People who are lazy don’t spin the combinations on their safes all the way until they have to redo it the next day. Instead they leave the combination so all they have to do the next morning is spin it back to zero.

It opened.

Everything was mine.

On the way out I had an idea. An inspiration.

I released every animal in the building. Even the horse and the python. I opened every window and every door. Then I lit out the back to my car.

When I looked around a huge Dalmatian was bounding along just behind my left heel. What in the hell is this with these animals. All I want to do is kill them for practice and all they want to do is love me.

I swear, animals are just as screwed up as people are.
