Last week some guys tried to throw a bike through our window. I was already in bed, but my love was still up and watching television on the other end of the window.

To our luck bike was too heavy and we had some plastic on the window, to avoid that people can look in our home all the time. Also was the curtain closed, so there was no glass hitting my love.
The guys ran away after their heroic deed, and that’s the whole of the story.
If there was a reason for them to do this, i don’t know it, but i think it was just a massive lack of brains.
