Well, I have been a bit twitter patted this past week;
Do you want to hear about it or not?
I could just write a nice cozy blog post and pretend it did not happen!
Well, it did,
And I did not get bit by a dog either.
I went to town to go to my hair appointment
(I was getting a Body Wave Perm)
It was early afternoon, and I decided I would run into Walmart,
And to get a few items while I was in town.
(I try to get as many things done when I make trips to town)
For those that do not know I now live in the country;
I have for over 20 years...
I pulled into the parking lot and I parked my car away from other cars
was just one car parked next to me,
And I can say this as soon as I popped out of my vehicle,
The door on the car next to me swung open and a young
Man with sores all over his face was holding a gas can.
And he asked me if I had any spare change for gas.
I told him; maybe when I came out.
But he was looking past me and I just knew something was going down!
I saw out of the corner of my eye two sets of people coming
Instinct kicked in, I had not locked my car yet, which was a miracle!
I jumped into my car and locked the door and I had my keys in my hand.
I started my car and pulled away fast quickly
Screaming at each other, saying why didn't you grab ****
My heart was beating and I felt sick to my stomach.
Remember when I said before;
Be aware of your surroundings!
I wrote is it wise to be out alone after dark?
Well, I was mugged in NY many moons ago,
I was punched in the face and they stole my purse.
I had a broken nose and two black and blue eyes.
Not sure what their full intentions were this time,
But they wanted what did not belong to them!
And wanted to cause me harm!
I am sure of that!
I am still trying to rethink how to keep safe and enjoy life!
Being alone anymore as a lady is like a target anymore.
It really always has been, but I believe it is getting worse!
Well If you have never been mugged you have no point
But it is happening way more often than you can imagine!
How can you protect yourself??
Do not be out alone!
Carry a Pepper Spray or a gun!
Stay in your car till you check your surroundings!
Keep your keys in your hand till safely in the building!
(Keys can be used as a weapon)
Listen to your gut instincts, they are usually right!
We have the right to protect ourselves and our loved ones!
