Every night at bedtime, my wife asks me to check and make sure the front door is locked, even though we live in the Safest Big City in America.
It’s annoying — and not just because it’s always locked, but because sometimes she waits until I’m already in bed. Then: “Did you check if the front door is locked?” And I have to get out of bed to check it.
She’s out of town this week. I got up this morning and noticed that I’d left the door unlocked all night . . .
