Locked Windows

That moment, when you’re walking through your house at night, closing the windows so it doesn’t get too cold in the kid’s bedrooms. You reach up to slide the window closed and start to close the blinds. Then you have a sudden flashback to a horror movie you watched in childhood that left you terrified of ever sleeping with unlocked or open windows.  Yes, Salem’s Lot flashed through my head.  That scene, where the younger brother whose been turned into a vampire is hovering outside his older brother’s window, scratching the glass and asking him to let him inside.  That scene flashed through my mind, quickly and unexpected.  I paused for a moment, then reached up and flipped the latch to lock the window.


Yeah, you bet your ass I locked the window.

    • OMG! I remember that movie too! I saw it in college and I made my roommate walk with me to the communal bathrooms on the floor of our dorm because there were mirrors everywhere and I wouldn’t go in there alone. LOL!
