One of those days when your dad leaves the house and locks the door as he leaves. You begin to vacuum the house because a guest will be coming soon and also, to convince your mother that you have been productive whilst being at home alone.
Then you hear a knock at the door and presumably think that it's your dad whose forgotten something at home. You take a look through the eye piece and it's someone other than your father so you panic because the house keys aren't anywhere near.
You think it'll be okay to ignore the knock at the door, but realise that you were vacuuming the passage so anyone on the other side of the door would have heard it and you also realise that when you heard the knock at the door, you tried pushing the handle down just in case it wasn't locked.
You're quick on your feet and devise a plan. You will enter the frontroom, open the top window and scream at the delivery man to deliver it next door because you don't have the house keys. But you open the window as wide as you can and the delivery man notices you and laughs.
Then you reach high up for the window, whilst on tip-toes and stretch your arm out as far as it can go. The man reaches up too and thankfully because it is a small parcel, it can fit through the window. He confirms the name of the recipient, continues laughing and away he goes.
Then you laugh at yourself and wonder if what just happened was real. Once you've convinced yourself it was real you continue with your day as though occurrences like these are somewhat frequent and normal. Of course they aren't, which is why today is special.
