Now compare your answers to Jodi's while she was on the stand:

QUESTION: What brought you to [Travis's] home? And, this is February. Do you remember the day?
JODI: "Not exactly, but it would have been the first or the second maybe the third."

QUESTION: You surprise Mr. Alexander in early February. Do you remember about what time you arrived in the home?       
JODI: "I had to work that night, so I hit the road. I don't remember. I think it was around 2:30 or 3 in the morning."

QUESTION: So tell us what happened when you arrived?
JODI: "I pulled up to his house and I was kind of excited the whole trip. I was like thinking I mean he thought it was hilarious when I came, so I thought it would be funny to do that… but as I approached the door I had doubts. I thought I kind of felt stupid. I was like what is he going to think. I'm showing up at his house at 3 o’clock in the morning. So I started to go back and forth and waver and then I walked back to my car and then I stopped. I was going to get all the way in the car and just go back because I felt silly, but I turned around and looked at the house one more time and I noticed in the upper window there were lights flashing like that was the lock were the screen would have been for the um television or movies or whatever. So somebody was awake, so I decided ok what the heck, so before I could change my mind I went back to the front door and rang the doorbell."

QUESTION: Who answered the door?
JODI: "Travis and Napoleon."
ATTORNEY: "And Napoleon is his dog right?"
JODI: "Yes. I could hear him before anything else . . . he was barking very loudly when the doorbell rang."

QUESTION: Did Mr. Alexander appear to you to be happy to see you?  
JODI: "Yes. He looked very surprised and he had a big grin on his face." 
ATTORNEY: "What happened after that? Did he let you in the home? How did that go?"
JODI: "He pulled me into the house. It was cold out, so it was February so I had a jacket on with a hood. And he just stood there kind of a similar reaction to me when he showed up. Dumbfounded, but happy like what the heck. And then his roommate came downstairs and he, Travis, yanked the hood off my head and said: Well this is Jodi."
