We interrupt this Ramadan introspection with a late-breaking Husbandfile.
Me: We need to do something about the front gate, there’s no way to see behind it when somone rings the bell. I could be opening the door for anyone. We need to put one of those little peep-hole thingies in.
HF: No, all we need is some electrical wiring and a switch.
Me: Oh? (For a security camera? she wonders)
HF: We could run the wire under the gate and plug one end into a socket and leave one end on the ground outside.
HF: And when someone rings the bell, you go outside and turn the power on.
Me: Then what?
HF: Then when they get electrocuted you identify them by the sound of their screaming.
