Nichole had Aubrey playing out in the front yard this morning. In my yard up by the house foundation are my flower beds. I also have two huge flower pots. At the moment there are no flowers in them. But rain water and mud are, so when the baby went to play in it Nichole went after her. Good thing she did! Inside floating in the water were several syringes with the needles!! Nichole came running inside for me. They are insulin needles that appear to not have been used, 6 of them. Too weird. Appear to have either been "stashed" in my flower pot or "dumped to lose evidence" there. I called the police dept to report it. I didn't want to toss them out or even touch them if they'd been involved in some crime. After a long wait on the phone I've been assured they haven't been at least to the police's knowledge at this time. I was told either they can come and dispose of them or I can just toss them out. So I went out and got them. The bag they came in was also there. I've put them into a walmart bag, tied it and at the moment it's sitting on my porch. It doesn't feel right to just toss them out. I dunno, maybe I've watched too much CSI on tv, but what if they were involved in some criminal activity the police are not yet aware of?? Then I'll have just tossed the evidence into the trash. Sure the police have my name and address, but that's nothing. Someone was taking a chance dumping them into that flower pot because they had to walk into my yard and clear up to my house to do it. Why didn't they just toss them into my trash cans on the side of the house, it would've been less risky and no one would've found them? We live right on the alley. My trash cans are right there for pete's sake. They could've just walked by and tossed them in. No. This wasn't my junkie friend. She NEVER comes to my house. Hasn't in the whole 5 yrs I've lived here. No way they are Nichole's, she wouldn't have come running to tell me. Not Travis because he would be daffy enough to tell me if he was messing with that sort of thing, it's the way he is. And don't you need a script for insulin syringes?? I'm pretty sure you do. Now for the Twilight Zone part of it........... Last night I had a VERY vivid dream. Nichole, her boyfriend and I had planned and carried out in great detail the murder of boyfriend's older brother. I was trying to come up with a sure fire way to rid all our computers of the evidence when I woke up. It was so vivid I found myself still trying to solve that problem while trying to figure out why on earth I'd dream such a thing in the first place. I've met boyfriend's brother once. He seemed snobby but nice enough. The "murder" involved syringes. Back to reality, I am MUCH releaved the baby didn't get to them first!! So....would you put them somewhere safe til you were sure they weren't involved in a crime, even though currently police say they aren't, or get rid of them?? Not a good way to start the morning.
