Murder Plot Foiled?
So...I am pretty sure someone tried to kill me yesterday. Let me tell you what happened. I returned home after a weekly grocery shopping trip and carried the first load into the house and up the stairs to the kitchen. On my way back down for load #2...my right foot went out from under me right at the top of the stairs. Luckily, I was able to catch myself before tumbling head over heels down the steps, to what I am sure would have been imminent death. What was the cause of my near fatal fall? A piece of lunch meat – positioned strategically at the top of the steps!
So....who is to blame for this diabolical plot? I have two suspects.
Suspect #1 – My wife Misty – who doesn't deny leaving a piece of lunch meat out for Chilli when she left for work. We needed to give him a pill, and that's the best way to get him to eat it. She says she left it in the living room for him, nowhere near the top of the steps.
Suspect #2 – Our dog Chilli - who has yet to make a statement. He just drooled, farted, and fell asleep when I asked him.
The investigation will continue.
