Jeez, what if being in Portland kind of wears off on you? I hope I don't catch any Portland -- I've been here so long.
Here's what I mean.
A man broke into somebody's house in Portland. The Portland owner came home and heard somebody showering and she knew there shouldn't be anybody showering, so she called 911. At the same time, the trespasser heard the homeowner come in, got scared, and he called 911 at the same time. He said he just broke into somebody's house and they came home on him, and he was scared the homeowner might have a gun.
I mentioned this is the kind of thing that has to happen only in Portland, didn't I?
Maybe she should have turned off the hot water at the tank. Right after she hollered "Chill out, Dude. I have a gun but I won't shoot if you stay in there 'til the cops come."
