Writer thankful officer saw humor in situation

-A A +A

I have a good relationship with my neighbors. Two of them moved away, but periodically come back to visit. Sometimes, they’ll knock loudly on the front door.
When I holler out, “Who are you?” they say, “Grayson County Sheriff.”
I respond, “If ya got a warrant, come on in!”
A few nights ago, I heard a loud banging on the door. Thinking my neighbors were dropping by, I yelled “Who are ya, and whaddaya want at this hour?!”
The response was, “Grayson County Sheriff’s officer.”
