I was coming down the dark hall when Tim came out of the living room, scared the wits out of me, since I had not heard him come in the door. Of course, when I jumped, it set off my back yet again.
"Don't do that...." I said, stiff and gasping. He stared at me dumbfounded.
What did I do to myself? I had bent down to put on a pair of slipper socks....how pathetic is that?
