46. and a hokey one at that

Nothing like a good reconstruction. That belongs on A&E, surely!

I dunno. I've broken my foot twice. I've never been "unable to move". I would have been out the door as soon as I heard the noises. (In fact I've done just that. Late one night years ago I heard noises in my attic. I was in the grips of panic and anxiety over my bar ads income tax exam, and under the influence of a little valium and a little something else. I was sitting in bed studying with two cats slumbering at my feet. I said to myself: it's just the house creaking in the cold. If it were anything else, the cats would know. At that instant, the smartest cat sat bolt upright, stared at the bedroom door toward the attic staircase across the hall, and growled a mighty growl. I grabbed a coat and my boots and ran out the door to my friend's house six blocks away. I assume the cat was just being as nervous as I was.)

Odd that the woman says she's on her couch and unable to move, and the video (which she was presumably a party to, since she's interviewed) shows her standing in the kitchen (pregnant? was she?).

The call was real, the incident was real, the woman had choices -- leave, call police -- she called police, and she survived. Hm.
