It's that time I guess? Lately, whenever we go somewhere, HF is looking over his shoulder, parking strategically, spotting trouble left and right. . .
HF has always been very protective of me and our family and aware of our surroundings. While he makes me feel safe and secure, I've often wondered if he is just a tad paranoid or he really is beginning to have that sixth sense that cops get about people and their surroundings. Still, no matter what, I think he has and always will be a little over the top about a lot of things, despite his growing cop sense. Here's an example.
We live in a 3-story townhouse. The main floor consists of a living room, bathroom, and kitchen. Upstairs is 2 bedrooms and a bathroom, and the basement as 2 bedrooms, a laundry room, and storage space. Our kids are too scared to be in the basement by themselves so everyone sleeps upstairs. That's been fine, but I mentioned to HF that I would like he and I to move our bedroom to the basement and what did he think the pros and cons were of that setup.
HF then told me that if someone were to shoot a gun into our home, it would be more likely to hit someone in the basement than someone in a room that was way above ground.
Trying not to laugh, I said I was thinking cons as in, there are more spiders down there, it's freezing in the winter, the possibility of mice, etc. NOT MURDER.
While the statistics of shooting and hitting someone in a basement rather than an upper floor may be more true than not, who thinks that way?! I'm the one with the anxiety issues, but even I think that the chances of that happening are pretty much slim to none.
On second thought, he probably told me that so that he would get out of moving a bunch of stuff up and down 3 flights of stairs.
