Little Miss Thing, age 6: “We should get a gun in case robbers come.”

Wonderful Wife: “It’s more likely to have an accident with a gun than to defend your house with it.”

Me: “Plus we have a security system and three huge dogs.”

WW: “And we don’t have a bunch of cash or electronics or jewelry that robbers would even want.”

Me: “And we have insurance. We’ll just buy another TV if they steal it.”

LMT: “Yeah, our TV is getting kinda dusty.”

Me: “That’s the spirit.”
