Let me back up. Last night I fell asleep in the den, which probably happens to me once or twice a week. It happens when I'm watching TV and don't realize how tired I am. Well, when I woke up I turned off the TV and headed to bed. I was very sure I did this, because my dog Elphie headed toward the bed when the TV went off. She always does this.
So, it's about 3:30. I am suddenly awakened by the sound of voices. Down the hall I see light -- light that I am sure I didn't leave on. You can bet the adrenaline kicked in! What do I do? Do I quietly call 911 on my cell phone? Do I get up and challenge the intruders? Do I "play dead" and let them take my stuff because I don't know whether they have a gun?
So I lay there. Thinking. Listening. And as I did I got my wits about me and realized that the conversation was very relaxed for someone breaking into a house. Yep, you got it -- I was hearing voices from the TV, which was on for some reason.
I turned it off. I know I did. Elphie is my witness. So I stood there wondering...why in the world did someone break into my house, find the universal remote, turn on the Control 4 system, select TV from the remote, turn it on, and then leave, locking all the doors behind them? Cause that must have happened!
Either that, or my TV system has gremlins.
