    I am an Idiot

    Now that i have recoverd my body heat i can write this thread.

    Around 10 O'clock PM i went outside and took my dog out so he could do his business. After that i let him go inside and i decided to stay outside and chill for awhile(our back yard has plenty of trees, so its good scenery). I was out there for probably about 25 minutes. When i finished up being outside i came inside and sat right on down in my living room wacthing NFL Newtwork and on the lab top(on Cyclonefanatic of course). As time went on i started feeling freezing and i mean FREEZING. It was so cold that i even made some hot chocolate because i had no idea what the heck was going on. Time passed by and it was 12:10 AM so i went and looked at what the temp was on in the house and it was set for 76 degrees. So i couldnt understand why in the world it was so damn cold in my house. I looked at all the windows and they were all closed. Then finally, i walked into my living room and heard a owl outside my house and i looked and guess what...i left my ******* slideing door open. So all that cold air was coming in for well over 2 hours.


    I AM AN IDIOT.




    PS-

    I enjoyed the hot chocolate

    Assuming you also left the screen door open, you probably opened up your house to a lot of bugs as well. lol

    Re: I am an Idiot

    This story makes me believe there was something enjoyed prior to the enjoying of the trees (scenery kind) outside. I may be wrong but that is the first thing that popped in my head.

    I know what your thinking, but no. I just like being outside.

    Re: I am an Idiot

    An owl? I had a bat in my apartment because apparently having the screen door closed isn't enough. That was no fun, how did you get the owl out?

    Ahhh, fitting post, for the thread title applies here as well.


    OP stated the owl was heard outside his home.

    No no, op was clearly owl viewing before tree viewing.

    Hoot Hoot.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Did you say the owl was looking for pop cans in a dumpster?

    Re: I am an Idiot

    Was the owl on a treadmill? If so, did he take flight?

    Also, never get high on your own supply.

    I really took you 2 hrs to notice this?! I thought it would be pretty obvious to check the windows and sliding door...
