So, Adam was watching or reading this story about a woman who was raped and murdered after a guy broke into her house (or rather, walked in, as she didn't have the door locked). Of course Adam gets all paranoid and asks me what kind of device I would like to have around to keep myself and Asher safe (we do keep our doors locked, by the way). A gun, a taser, mace, etc. I know that we should have something...right now our weapon is a large wooden sword (used for ninjutsu practice) that is kept under the bed. It could really put the hurt on, but I doubt that I would be able to effectively use it against someone much larger and stronger than me. A gun sounds like a good idea, but then I kind of wonder if, in a situation like that, I would have the time or mental awareness to get the gun, unlock it, load it, and fire it. It would probably be very intimidating to an intruder just to see me holding it, but Adam isn't exactly comfortable having a gun in the house with kids because he had a friend in high school who killed another friend on accident while playing around with a loaded gun. Apparently there really are people stupid enough to do that. Anyway, a taser or mace also sound like a good idea. I don't really know though. What do you guys think?
In other news, this morning sickness is killing me. Asher watched about 2 hours of PBS this morning while I was lying on the couch trying not to throw up. Poor neglected child.
Oh and a question...the place where our names are listed on the left side, why do they keep changing places? And why are some bold and some not? Does this indicate when another person is signed in, or who posted last, or what?
