Our front door entry area sports a number of gee-gaws that we like to look at. One morning I noticed an addition to the collection.
Upon asking her what she was doing up there she told me that she wanted to be the 'entry sentry' and that this seemed like a perfect place in which to practice her vocation.
I had to break it to her that most of the coming and going is at the back door. She didn't seem deterred. "If you don't have much traffic here that's all the more reason you need me. Some undetected person of malfeasance might sneak in".
