My Home's Ultra-Advanced Antitheft Security System:

• Perimeter: veritable minefield of the neighbor's kids' toys, the other neighbor's dogs' droppings, and stinging, biting insects that look as if they belong in a '50s sci-fi movie.

• Front Door: protected by a mean-looking iCarly sticker placed above and slightly to the left of the doorknob by the neighbor's daughter, as well as surrounded by a labyrinthine swell of rotting Pennysavers and cigarette butts.

• Back Door: cannot be opened by anyone, even those bearing the key, without Herculean force applied to it from one's shoulder — sending a shockwave through the house that shakes the walls, rattles the furniture, and gives me a helpful 20-second warning to hide the hand lotion and put my pants back on.

• Sliding Door of Back Porch: never fails to jump its tracks and make a klaxon-like screech whenever someone tries to use it … very similar to an Amtrak train.

• Overhead Garage Door: impregnable; even I can't get the damned thing open without a ladder, two buddies, and an afternoon with nothing better to do.

• Windows: cosseted by an opaquely gray (and possibly sentient) film I've lovingly cultivated over the last five years.

• Guard Animals: a pair of portly and pertinacious felines, trained to mewl both loudly and incessantly at every new person that they encounter until fed, regardless of whether there is food in their bowl.

• House Interior: full of ugly, worthless crap that nobody in their right mind would care about enough to steal.
