Before I retired, I was working the night shift as a Peace Officer. I worked from 11pm to 7am. My routine was always to unwind after work by doing power walking and then go to sleep by 11am, up by 4pm, for about 3 hours and back to sleep again.
My brother was living with me at the time and always had a habit of knocking on my bedroom door to tell me something that could had waited until I got up.
This one particular night, I had laid down for my regular sleep about 7pm. Just as I got into a deep sleep, there was a loud banging on my bedroom.
I jumped out of bed ready to say some choice words to my brother. I opened the door and no one was there. I searched the entire house and found no one. That’s when I remembered that my brother told me earlier that he would be gone all evening and probably would not return until I left for work.
So who knocked on my door?
Since that incidence, my brother no longer lives with me and I’m married. So when it’s just my husband and I in the house ( I do have some visitors at times) we sleep with the door opened.
