I’ll confess, I left an upstairs window open but I swear it must have been a monkey that got up there and inside. There is no way to climb up, that is what I would have said there are no pipes or anything to haul yourself up, but a burglar, or a monkey did it.
Perhaps it was Spiderman, or the burglar sat at the back of my house and did the Indian rope trick. Of course he could have used a ladder, but he would have brought one with him because I don’t have one, I mean there was not one left in the yard that he could have used.
Anyway he did it, he got in and took a lot of our stuff. He did not leave by the window, he used the back door, the lock does not need a key on the inside you just turn the thumb catch. He stole what he could carry, an Xbox, DVD’s and CD’s, two watches, a camera, some of my wife’s jewelry (not real expensive stuff,) and get this, my jacket, ball cap and backpack. The police say he wore the jacket and cap and filled the backpack with our stuff.
He did tip some draws out on the bed but did not make a real mess. Police say that was because it was a lone burglar, they say two or more are likely to trash places they steal from. We were lucky too that there was no damage from breaking in.
I would like to know how the heck he got up there, but I can tell you that we have not left a window open since that monkey burglar paid us a call.
