Photo evidence - I really did it...and nothing happened. Mike says he thinks he saw a few people take a second glance, but that was it. No comments, no hysteria, no police. I did not go berserk and mow down other shoppers in a crazed hailstorm of bullets when I got in the vicinity of the beer cooler. Just a normal trip to the store, like any other Saturday...except for the first 15 minutes where I felt like I was stuck in one of those dreams where I go to work and I'm the only one who's naked and I had a giant neon "zOMG, GUN!" sign plastered to my forehead. Oh, and the collard greens I bought for tomorrow, that's a bit out of the ordinary.
When I got back to the car, I looked at Mike and Mike looked at me. "Well, then," I said. "I guess that's that."
"I guess so," he replied.
"No big deal."
"I guess not."
I'm still grinning.
And, hey! NancyR and MikeW are OCing too. Freedom is really fun, you should try it if you can. (And if you can't, well...get active!)
