I just want to say, living in South Africa today, is a sport. Yep, you have to be able to run fast, or freeze on the spot. The amount of robberies and killings and raping happening is staggering. And here we are sitting ducks...but ducks we don't always have to be. We do not have to be locked up in our homes, to feel safe, cos its our homes they are after too. The content and whatever the hell they can get their hands on is all up for grabs. They just want want want...but the only WANT they don't want is to want to work!!
Anyway, after all of that, about 3 weeks ago, in the wee hours of the morning I heard a very loud thud.. LOUD. I thought perhaps it was a tremor, it was not a sound I was familiar with. I got up and went to check the front door and all was well. My car was still there, so it was all good. I went back to bed not knowing that if I had looked out of my window, I would probably have laughed the whole neighbourhood awake and taken pictures. I went back to sleep not thinking much cos it all looked good.
I woke up in the morning, and opened my curtains............and there it was....proof , absolute proof that some miscreant wanted to do some affirmative action shopping in my house. Who else jumps over your wall in the dead of the night like a criminal, but a criminal??? And this is where I was shocked. He jumped over my wall and landed on my cactus plant!!! He fell down so hard, that he actually broke the pot that the cactus plant was in. Now I ask you with tears in my eyes, how the hell did he not scream??? I have a cactus with very long thorns!!! Justice I tell you, justice. I am keeping my eyes open for some bloke walking around holding his arse, cos if he does not get it seen too, those thorn pricks will get septic...shame ... NOT tsk tsk..
EPIC FAIL for him.... Now I am getting cacti all around my parameter wall, and will await the next visitor....
