To Hell with Thieves (UPDATED)

Also posted today at baldilocks–with Peter’s per­mis­sion, as this is a spe­cial case. This is a slightly dif­fer­ent version.Baldilocks mini

Some­one who offered to help me clean out my garage just stole my iPad. (I have to be totally out of my house by tomor­row morn­ing or I won’t get a promised pay-​off.) It has a lock code on it, and I don’t think that there’s any­thing he can do other than post things in my name until it locks up. But…

You who took my prop­erty, you know who you are. Bring it back or else. Oh I’m not going to do any­thing to you. But watch out for God.

Excuse me while I change my passwords.

UPDATE: It pays not to panic. Dar­mon Thorn­ton reminded me that iPads and iPhones can be remotely found and locked. So that’s what I’ve done. I hope I see the drafts of my novel again, but if not, my imag­i­na­tion can­not be stolen.

Juli­ette Akinyi Ochieng blogs at baldilocks. Her first novel, Tale of the Tigers: Love is Not a Game, was pub­lished in 2009; the sec­ond edi­tion in 2012. Her sec­ond novel, ten­ta­tively titled, Arlen’s Harem, will be done in 2015.

Please con­tribute to Juliette’s Projects: Her new novel, her blog, her Inter­net to keep the lat­ter going and COF­FEE to keep her going!

Someone who offered to help me clean out my garage just stole my iPad. (I have to be totally out of my house by tomorrow morning or I won’t get a promised pay-off.) It has a lock code on it, and I don’t think that there’s anything he can do other than post things in my name until it locks up. But…

You who took my property, you know who you are. Bring it back or else. Oh I’m not going to do anything to you. But watch out for God.
