They Should Call Me St. Lisa

Actual conversation at the dinner table tonight:

John (convinced we need to prepare for the coming revolution): What do you think about me spending 2 grand on an AR-15?


Lisa: (speechless, for the first time in her life)
I couldn't make this stuff up, folks. I just couldn't . . . even if I tried.
I think I'm taking away his survival book. It is scaring the bejeebers outta me.

My John would probably agree with your John....and I would be on your side...Speechless!

Melissa said...

My husband would say something like that too....he's already bought a few cases of those MRE's. 4 years in the military and he thinks he's Jack Bauer from 24. Men...seriously?!?!

I don't see what could be wrong with wanting to prepare oneself and one's family for /any/ eventuality.

St. John, there is nothing wrong with that . . . as long as it doesn't cost 2 grand. Maybe you could find a nice AR-15 on craig's list :) I love you soooooo much!

St. John,

I will chip in $10 if you promise to protect us too?!? But I don't get it - shouldn't you buy a storm shelter instead? I'll chip in $20 for that! We could bury it in the backyard...
