Strange orb in the sky, strange man at the door

There's a strange, glowing orb in the sky. It's so bright, I can't look directly at it. It's giving off a bit of heat as well. The alien object looks a bit sneaky to me, as it occasionally hides behind clouds. I seem to have a dim, distant memory of seeing the orb before, possibly sometime in a past life. Yes, the sun is shining! Kind of. But for how long, is anyone's guess, as there's also a lot of cloud around.

A strange man rang my doorbell a few minutes ago. Strange as in unfamiliar, and strange as in peculiar. I didn't answer, as he looked quite scary - a typical druggie type. Jake usually ignores the doorbell, and only barks at people when I open the door. But shortly after the bell rang, he launched a furious, aggressive barking session, and kept pawing my leg.

I peeped out through the window, and the weird, scruffy man, with a duffle bag on his back, was staring right up at my living room window. When he heard Jake, he started on his way. It occurred to me that my living windows are open. Was this a would-be burglar, ringing the bell to ascertain whether anyone's home or not?

Jake may only be a little dog, weighing a whole 22.6 pounds, but he has a good bark on him, which belies his small stature. For that reason alone, he's worth his weight in gold. He sounds more like a Staffordshire Bull Terrier than a Shih Tzu or Lhasa Apso. Whereas hardly anyone would be scared of either a Lhasa or a Shih Tzu, not many burglars would mess with a Staffy. Oh well, time to close my windows, and head off to the bakery.

I hate it when odd people come to my door especially if I have answered it and then they say... sorry wrong door..

Who knows if they were checking if anyone was at home before trying to break in..
