Belle locked me out of our house tonight. Barefoot, I'd gone outside to empty the contents of the vacuum cleaner into the garbage. I'd pulled the door closed behind me to prevent a naked Belle from streaking out into the cold night. I found the door locked upon my return. I heard Belle scream as I pounded on the door and rang the bell. I stopped trying to get Belle's attention and started ringing my neighbors' doorbells until I got help. I allowed my neighbor to break into my house and let me back in. I found a puddle of Belle's piss and a pile of poop waiting for me in the entry way. Belle must have been terrified. I did not feel fear. I felt able and ready to pick a lock if I had to.
