By day he was a respected locksmith but by night he was a notorious burglar. Using his many years of experience and his nimble fingers to defeat many of the same locks he had earlier sold or serviced. All this duplicitous entrepreneurship was working well for him until one evening the night watchman, to ge t a break from the tedium of his job, decided to make his rounds in reverse order. Imagine the burglar's surprise when he saw the ominous dark figure walking up the long hallway just as the burglar was about to make yet another illegal e ntrance. He had to think FAST! Suddenly he realized he could call on his legitimate talents. He quickly made a BLANK BLANK the BLANK and got clean away.
