Seriously?! and My New Coffee Mug

So as I'm enjoying a wonderful slumber last night the door bell rings...the door bell rings and someone is knocking VERY loudly. I look at the clock. It's 4 am. Bill gets up, is not dressed, and I believe a bit confused. He fumbles to get dressed (out of his wonderful slumber) to be greeted at the door by a policeman. Yes, one of the boys in blue is at our door at 4 am. Bill invites him in. He declines. He then goes on to tell Bill (I'm standing around the corner listening as I'm not dressed) that our blue car has been broken into. Yes, my little Honda Fit was violated! Poor guy/car. Anyway, the officer asks Bill to see if anything is missing. 
At this point I chime in and say that maybe I should come too, it's my car. I walk outside to see two police cars with a "hooded sweatshirt clad perp" in the backseat of one of them. The officer shows me a bag that was taken from my car and asks if anything has been taken from it. I then laugh and know the joke is on the "perp." All that was in that bag was a Winnie the Pooh book. Hahaha. I laugh. Really hard. Jokes on him! I go on to look through the rest of my car and the only other thing missing are my prescription sunglasses. Jokes on him again...unless he has the same prescription as me and enjoys women's sunglasses. Hahaha. I asked the officer if the car was damaged (apparently I'm blind at 4 am) he replied with a no and that the "perp" said that it was unlocked. Hmmm? Really? Ok. I guess I forgot. So we go and checkout Bill's Mom's car (he made another trip to Ikea yesterday and our cars are too small) the glove compartment is open. Oops. I guess they got her car too. Nothing of importance was taken. Thank goodness. I guess her car was unlocked too. Seriously?! I don't think so. 

I am flabbergasted at the fact that the "perp" was allowed to TEXT while sitting in the backseat of the police car! Seriously?!! So, I guess the "perp" got lucky with me. A Winnie the Pooh book and prescription sunglasses. Hahaha. I didn't lose anything of importance except for sleep. Thank Goodness!!


Now on to the Coffee Mug Swap!

I participated in a coffee mug swap and received a super Springy mug from Brook over at Cutesy Bootsie. She is a former Minnesotan just like me! She said she checked out all of the things on my blog and that's how she chose the mug for me. It's from Anthropologie and boy did I get excited when I received the bigger than a coffee mug box in the mail! At first I thought Bill really listens when I talk. I was so excited I could barely breathe! As soon as I opened the box and saw the smaller box inside this bigger box (why do they do that?!) I knew it was from Brook!

Here are a few pics I took of the mug right before I used it with my FAVORITE Starbucks Via Caramel coffee.

Thanks Brook! I love it!

I'm glad you have such a positive outlook on the "perp" situation!! You had me in stitches laughing!!
Awesome mug too! I wish I could participate in this..but I know no Canadians :(
Have a great day! Hope your loss of sleep is not too detrimental!

that is crazy!! I'm glad he didn't get away with anything! And I love your new mug!

Brook said...

Scary! I don't know if I'd be brave enough to open the door at 4am. Glad it wasn't worse! So happy you like the mug - I love Anthropologie, too! :)

OMG why do people find it necessary to break into cars?!?! Honestly.. who would leave all their money in cash in their car overnight?! My car did get broken into back in my freshman year of college and I had my fiance's college bowl game ring in my NEW Juicy bag... I JUST got as a gift... went to the gym and left that bad boy in the back seat covered with a towel... guess I wasn't slick... but felt horrible that the ring of all things was missing :/

Good thing you didn't lose anything valuable girlie!

That mug is SO cute! I love anthro :) And hey, maybe he did in fact like winnie the pooh and just wanted a new bed time story. Glad the car wasn't damaged!
