...There arose such a clatter

So last Wednesday I'm lounging on the couch, it was about 3am, and I hear this thundering boom followed by a clatter. I guessed mom had fallen and taken something heavy with her, like the bureau mirror or something. She was asleep when I checked on her. The room was in order. I checked the kitchen and bathroom, all okay. Could I have drifted off for a moment and been dreaming? Pretty vivid flash-dream, but I couldn't find anything unusual anywhere, so I went back to the couch.

About 2 hours later I was sleepy enough to go to bed, so I go to my room and find two pictures have fallen off the wall behind my bed and my pillow covered with an odd powdery substance. The whole top portion of the bed is powdered, and the carpeting beneath the window, my dresser, the window sill, my shoes. This powder had a grainy feel and smelled of chemicals. I inspected the ceiling and walls for obvious cracks or ....something. I checked my bedroom window, which I keep open about 2 inches during the cold months. The screen was locked.

I got a flashlight, put on a jacket and my boots, and went outside to investigate. Walking down the side of the house toward my bedroom window, I find a trail of that powder. It thickens as I get closer to my window. I shine the light on the side of the house, the adjoining lot, the backyard; nothing unusual. I lower my flashlight and, lying on the ground just beneath my window, I see a large fire extinguisher. And the only footprints in the chemical dust were mine.

It was the creepiest thing I've ever seen. Certainly the most mysterious....

From a distance, someone chucked a fully loaded, set-to-spray fire extinguisher at my house? And it sprayed right in through 2 inches of open window? What in the hell? Volunteer 3am fireman? I didn't even have a candle burning.

What the fuck?

Someone came u pto your window, sprayed in te crack to fuck with you, and then sprayed a bit as he ran away, dropping the extinguisher. Because he sprayed as he was running away, his footsteps were covered up by fresh spray. This is my guess.

Either way, someone was a complete bully and asshole to two older ladies. What a fuckwad.

Because it seemed unfathomable to me that anyone could be such a fuckwad, I asked several customers if it was possible the extinguisher could have become self-propelled as a result of the near-freezing temperatures we've had. My thought being; maybe the thing was lying in a pile of scrap metal in the neighboring lot (and not very far from my window)....one of several piles of catagorized junk that Rod the Handyman left out there after tearing down the burned-out house. Plus, it obviously hit that wall with a lot of force.

Well, cold extinguishers don't fly, and Rod assured me there wasn't one in his heap of metals anyway.

I have to conclude such fuckwads do exist. :(

So, does an extinguisher spray only while someone is depressing the release? If so, then the intent was to fill my room with chemicals.

Jeezuz.

A few of my customers told me I should report this to the police department. I probably should.
