When I got back from my 2 week trip, I found some new developments in the house. It seems that my LO has been watching the “local” news; (we all know that isn’t pretty), so she decides that there is an increase in home invasions, (mind you, we live in a very upscale community and there have been NO home invasions in our community or even nearby) so she has added extra security measures. She has barricaded the french doors with a chair and tied the the handles of the other set of french doors with a plastic shopping bag!
A week has gone by and this is now our new “normal”; part of the nightly security routine.
She informed me yesterday that her latest “security” measure is that she thinks we should buy a gun! (because those pesky home invasions keep happening); I tried to keep a normal face and calmly said we could talk about it later. Can you imagine…..????
Yesterday I went out for about a half hour to the store and when I returned via the garage , (which I always do), I startled her because she forgot that I had gone out. (She thought I was upstairs in my office). Envision this scenario: she now has a hand gun at her side! I’m hoping she forgets that we will talk about it later.
