Unexpected Visitors


“Ask not for whom the doorbell tolls – it tolls for thee.”

At least, some days it certainly seems like it. Are-you-sure-you-didn’t-order-a-pizza this, notice-proclaiming-that-your-package-can’t-be-delivered-until-you-pick-it-up-because-you-were-in-the-bathroom-at-the-time-of-the-delivery that…those instances can really ruin the flow of a day. Yet, these are not the worst random events that can wander their way on to your doorstep. The unnannounced guests take that top (or, rather, bottom) spot.

Panic mode. Not only do you have to try and appear peaceable to these intruders, but, for the lesser-backboned, simple entertaining duties become an additional chore. Would you like to imbibe some of my precious household resources? Sorry, that doesn’t come in “Diet”. And yes, I’d love to talk about your medical experiences involving sliding on a puddle of pus, but I really do need to finish this tax return. No, no, I don’t want help. And no, I can’t list you as a dependent.

At least there’s that overwhelming sense of relief when the offending party leaves. What’s unfortunate is that there shouldn’t have been any stress in the first place. So please, interested visitors to my and others’ abodes: Call first.

And if you track anything in, don’t make me clean it up.

  1. Like the dependent line, of course, that is exactly at the heart of the nightmare, the one that just does not leave 🙂

  2. I say Herald unexpected visitors.
    These are encounters that are unexpected – savour them and let one’s self enjoy them and their company.
    These people may be gone forever tomorrow, or at least before you expect them to be, so take in the experience and relish in those that thought you important enough in their lives to stop by instead of just call, e-mail, text or tweet. Most people should be so lucky in this day and age. Use cash more too – it is a viseral experience.
    Have a great day!
