Kinda Worried

So I had to visit the folks briefly to print something out AGAIN. It looks like money is tight over there again, yet they're still talking about taking me out to dinner later this week. Is that really a good idea? It's nice they're trying to repay me for when I took them out to dinner, but... I'm worried I may need to help them out a bit towards the end of the month.

I realized that taking at least one non-work-related trip each year is one big thing I still indulge in. Maybe I should skip out on trips entirely next year? I was thinking it would be cool to make a trip up to Seattle again, but at this point I don't know...

Oh, but my folks did go out and buy a gun! So now they're true Texans? When they first moved here, they asked for some gun money, and I was like... I guess? And it looks like they really did set it aside as "gun money only" and not like "food money". They feel like they need the protection I suppose, though they're in a really good neighborhood, I thought. I hope they don't feel like, now that they have a Blu-Ray player, that they're going to be the target of robberies or something. But still, I don't really see why they need hollow point bullets...

Life is forever crazy!

I hear you, man. Life is just nuts sometimes.

They're living the dream!

That's so zany... Families are interesting. I wonder if it was just something they'd always wanted, and the Blu-Ray is just a good excuse..?

And I can't believe I know this, but I guess hollow points are popular for civilian guns because it prevents the bullet passing through and hitting someone else, or ricocheting off walls? But still, freaky. :O

That makes sense! I dunno if my folks were thinking about that, though. My step-father was just like, "It's for extra damage!"
