I've Been Shot!

So, I was sitting at the computer w/ Addy on Thurs night and I heard a popping noise and then felt something whiz by me and hit the computer screen. I thought somebody threw something at me or shot at me. I got scared and yelled for Ben. I told him what I thought and said maybe it came from the back door(I had it open to air out my flu infested house). He kinda smirked and said. "Did you find anything?" Well, no I say. "Meliss, It was probably a moth." A MOTH! I tell him I know what a moth sounds like and it wasn't a moth whizzing by my ear. By this point I was doubting myself and Ben was making me feel stupid, so I dropped it. Well, the next morning I'm cleaning the kitchen and I find these holes in my windows. (see below evidence) You may have to make the pic big to see it well but, its in the upper middle , left area. This is where it entered.
It shot through to my bay window and this is where it hit there. Then it ricocheted off the window and flew by me to the computer .

The window it came in is behind me and that's where the computer is. Anyway, I thought I'd blog this so in the future when Ben tells me I'm being dramatic I can say " what about the killer moth?" I'm not going to lie I was pretty shaken after I realized what happened because my sweet baby Addy was on my lap. I was thinking "what if" and made myself cry. I've decide to close my curtains at night from now on. I also bought a sling shot and am gonna sit up tonight waiting for the shooter to return:)

That is INSANE!!!!! I am glad you are ok and I am glad you had such an amazing way to prove Ben wrong! By the way, I like your picture because it shows me a little of the old neighborhood.

Oh my gosh! It is soooo time to leave the valley! Just get over here to NM...I've never had a bullet fly through my window! That is sooo scary!

Christy Canfield said...

Oh my word!! That is so scary...you need to move somewhere safer, like UTAH. I'm relieved you are okay. Love you guys.

Let's admit that you have had a few run ins with moths (swallowing one at girls camp)! So I thought there is where this post was headed. Now you need to question Ben on why someone is out to get him, because we all know that there is no way that you have made any enemies in your lifetime, you sweet peach! Seriously, though, did anything happen with the cops, did you call them? And have you been staying at your mom's?

Holly said...

seriously this upsets me so much! Why the crap(thats the nicest word i can think of right now) are you living there. I feel like all the robberies and now this are signs you should be here with me. I dont think i have heard a gunshot since I have lived here. seriously the economy sucks so struggle to live in a safe place rather then struggling to live then end up getting shot! Then your family will end up in jail cause I will take Mikes guns and take out your whole porno neighborhood! Ok... I am done, for now!

Rushele said...

Good luck with your sling shot! I hope it does the trick for ya!!
I am so sorry that happened though, in all seriousness, that is really scary, and crazy!
I'm glad you and Addy are alright!!!

Laura said...

was it a bb gun? did you find bullet? and hold up w/ all the smack talk on the valley from everyone. you don't want to move to lame utah or lame idaho or lame arizona. it is not like you live in the ghetto, you have just had some bad luck.

josh and dianna said...

WOW! That's crazy/scary!! Did you find the bullet? Can I put a plug in for good ol' San Diego?! It's safe here! If you move anywhere it should be here! It'd be the easiest transition! And it's gorgeous! Win Win

Julie and Todd said...

Holy crap. I'm freaking out for you. I can't even imagine! Come live by us!
