Encounter with guardian angel January 20th, 2022 We (myself and thee missus) experienced shell shock analogous to war weary soldiers back home from the western front experiencing battlefield flashback analogous to awakening dormant post traumatic stress disorder. Mental health challenged renter twice threatened us (think rabid wild animal violently lunging at unwitting victim), whereby nearly deadly encounter with malicious malevolent male regarding second confrontation found dearly beloved spouse, rushing pell mell into apartment faster than bat out of hell. The initial occasion of fright awakened us to bizarre ejaculations out the mouth of unhinged forty one year old mental health challenged individual, who uttered angry string of colorful expletives before he ambled off in a huff into the great beyond undoubtedly bringing bedlam in his wake beyond highland manor. Incident number two found the missus cornered and threatened courtesy fiendish irate lunatic, who brandished clenched fist (possibly concealing a deadly weapon) scaring the heebie jeebies out the lovely bones of ma lady subsequently witnessing daredevil escape. She tore off (in half sashay) away from maws of maniacal madman at breakneck speed just managing to elude fate worse than death (think skin of her teeth getaway) breathless and thankfully just in nick of time safely ensconced within our apartment. Once she (figuratively) caught her breath, after smattering of scant minutes, we both collected our composure immediately and suddenly heard an unexpected loud rap upon door late morning/early afternoon circa aforementioned date, which initially understandably signalled immediate alarm, and puzzled deux countenances startling yours truly and mine wife, of course set our hearts racing a mile a minute, cuz we presumed the psychotic dude returned to wreak vengeance for no particular rhyme nor reason. I dashed to answer pounding knock lo and behold, unbeknownst to us divine intervention beheld as benevolence forsooth a good samaritan hashtagged and dubbed saving grace gussied up as brilliant ethereal spirit shone forth greeting yours truly with a shimmering halo, thus thankfully nipping in bud and thwarting potential major crisis, predicated upon our forgetfulness courtesy discombobulated disgruntled, and distracted demeanor to remove apartment key and other important keys from respective aperture, which as averred got left dangling outside the door amidst the hubbub, said good samaritan savior incognito politely handed over jingling keys, she unwittingly intervened in timely manner cuz someone could have brazenly stolen set lock, stock and barrel, which oversight linkedin to altercations with resident schizophrenic.
