Jodi and the Shake-Up – June’s Bloomington News and Views Short Story

What would you do if you awakened in the middle of the night to hear someone tugging at your door?  My latest story in Bloomington News & Views for the Young at Heart presents just such a case!  With her husband away on a golf outing, Jodi sleeps with her bedroom door shut.  Unfortunately, she forgot to lock it, and when she wakes to someone jostling the knob, she can think of only one option!
