What better way to start a new week than a return to the weird and wacky news from my local paper. I don't even know what to say about this latest installment. . . but I suspect that it really didn't matter how convincing the woman needed to be in order to scare off an intruder. (For the record, I don't think the people who live around here are any weirder or wackier than most; and based on my latest perusal of "People of WalMart," I'm convinced that weirdness is a universal malady.)~cn
Anyway, for your reading pleasure(?), I present the following:
Woman acts like a dog to scare off man
A Simmons Street woman scared off a would-be burglar about 11 p.m. Saturday by acting like a dog, an Athens-Clarke police report said.
When a suspicious man tried turning the woman's door knob, she got on the floor and began scratching at the door and acting like a large dog, police said, though what dog-like behaviors she specifically mimicked remains unknown.
The man, who wore an olive jacket, quickly ran from the porch, according to the report. Police searched the neighborhood for him, but to no avail.
