Jean was tired of burglers breaking into her house when she was at work.
Iron bars on the windows, a sophisticated burglar alarm, dogs (both big and small), cameras…nothing worked.
Jean was an astro physicist with a love for tinkering. She decided the time was right to make her own alarm system.
One day, it happened again. But this time Jean was made aware of the entry and rushed home. As she entered her front door, the cowards ran out the back…just as she predicted they would do.
Running toward the fence, they did not see the nearly invisible razor wire that had been activated across the path.
Blood and matter rained on Jean’s favorite pansies and tulips.
Headless burglars are the best kind.
