dear college hill, you're welcome.

This has been one of those days that you simply can't just make up the shiz that has happened. First, I got a new car today. It's been a really long time coming, but ohhhhhhh boy was it worth it. However, that is an entirely different subject (the car), but it is totally pertinent to what I'm about to share.

Most of my day was consumed with trying to purchase the car. At one point in the day I was stuck at home, car-less just waiting for the bank to finish putting our stuff together for the car. Finally around 3p, Edder and I were heading to the bank. We live in a neighborhood where a lot of our friends and co-workers also happen to live, one of those people lives on the same street, but two blocks away. We pass their house nearly every time we leave our house. Today was no exception. However, I looked up right when we were passing their house and noticed some random dude, looking quite suspicious, walking out from behind our friend's house. So we called our friend (and ed's co-worker) and told him what was going on, and drove closer to the house to check it out.

The guy could tell we were clearly watching him and that Ed was on his phone, so he came over and tried to get Ed to roll down the window... ummm right. That didn't happen. We drove away a little, then the dude goes and walks up to our friends front door and rings the doorbell. Like he was supposed to be there. Right. Of course he was. He then stopped a female jogger to talk to her and that's when Ed got out of the car, still on the phone with our friend to figure out what was going on. The guy gives Ed some lame story and starts to walk away. And this is where it gets really good. Because the walk? THE WALK?! This guy was CLEAARRRLLLY--and yeah, i'm gonna be all non-politically correct--flaming gay (not that there's anything wrong with that, unless you are trolling my neighborhood trying to break into my friend's houses.....). He had a swagger that was just, wow. And while talking to Ed, claimed he was looking for his "hook up," yeah the guy was saying he was a man-hooker trying to find the house he was supposed to be at.

That alone takes this story to an entirely different level where the question enters, who ordered the male prostitute to show up at our friends house as a prank? Hmmmmm... buuuuttt that wasn't the case, unfortunately.

To make a long story short. We called the police, stayed in our friend's driveway until he got there while Ed walked around checking doors and watched the guy walking around the 'hood through the fence. Our friend showed up, at which point we thought we could go along our merry way and buy the car. But no. You see there has been a huge rash of break-ins in our neighborhood since the summer. And after we had left, our friend gave us a call, and we had to turn around and go back to our friend's house where a bevy of cop cars were waiting, with the culprit in one of them sitting down the street. So we spent another half hour explaining what happened what must have been 10 times to all the police officers, God Bless 'Em. Edder went and identified him, but I wouldn't do it. And it sure was the man hooker/burglar.

It put a major kink in our schedule of getting the car, and of getting back to work, but it was worth it. I would have wanted someone else to do the same. Plus, it's one less guy in our hood trying to break into houses. Because in the end, we all know, the dude was really there trying to get into houses, and he just happened to be in the right spot, at the right time to get caught.

Crisis averted. Culprit apprehended. FWR.... keeping the streets of College Hill clean, one male hooker/burglar at a time.

And just because it makes me ridiculously happy, and makes me feel like I finally have a grown up car, here is my new ride, which I'm in love with! I gave myself away to the sales guy in about two minutes. Pretty sure the keys had just been handed to me when that was taken, random but excellent timing on Edder's part:
