There are many reasons – both pro and con – for why US citizens want the right to bear arms. I know at least one group who should not. Mothers.
Today at the 5th or 6th doctor appointment (shared with my 2 daughters, alternately) we were in one of those waiting rooms with no ‘elevator music’ and no matter how you tried to whisper, it echoed conversations.
She asked me how the other appointments had been. I whispered “Can you believe I am gaining weight?!!! on top of everything?” And she replied, loudly:
“Mom, there’s no way you weigh 193! Why that’s nearly 200 lbs!”
For the record, I was unarmed and I do NOT weigh 193 … in case you were sitting next to me at the neurosurgeons.
Kids say the darndest things, don’t they? And I thank God for them.
