It's 5:00am, my girlfriend and I are watching a movie, we both work night shifts. All of a sudden, I here a loud but, muffled "pop", and glass breaking. So, as a patrol officer who has heard a gunshot or two within close proximity to my ass, I think that someone just shot out one of my windows. Her and I both come leaping off the couch, I sprint for the kitchen where I placed my dutygun, and go bounding to the back of the house in the direction of the pop, only to realize that a over-primed beer bottled had exploded!
For the 3rd time in my life I can confirm that you can hear an a$$hole slam shut from a block away when a gunshot rings out unexpectedly and uncomfortably close.
Not sure if my girlfriend was more upset at the possibility of someone coming after me in my own home or that we had beer all over the back room.
Note to self, drink less beer and pay more attention while conditioning and bottling beer!
