For the most part, my husband is a pretty reasonable and normal guy. I think I "get" him, for the most part. But sometimes, I gotta just shake my head and wonder…. and realize I may never understand his real reason for some of the things he does. Because maybe he doesn’t even know the real reason he does some stuff. Tonight as we drove home from church (coffee bar again) he goes "Oh… I better take care of this." and pulls his handgun out of the center console of my car. What the????!!!… I said…. and he goes "oh, well, I was carrying tonight, but I never pack in church." Is that one of the wierdest things a guy can say? Honestly?! See, he has a ‘concealed weapons permit’ so it’s totally legal for him to carry a gun. He took a class and all. He’s very safety conscious. And certainly, I’m glad he’s not "packing" in church, lol! But why?? WHY?? Sure, he likes guns, likes shooting (targets only, he doesn’t hunt) but I find it completely dumb, to be honest. He says it’s because there are wierdos in the world, and he wants to be able to protect his family if he needs to. Him carrying around a gun does not comfort me in the least, really. He thinks it should, but no, not so much. And I wonder – does it make him feel tough, or what? Like a ‘real man’? Or, does he really feel it’s in his family’s best interest? I mean, honestly, I can’t see him shooting some guy, even if he needed to – but, then, what do I know? It’s just weird stuff, as far as I can see. Weird, macho guy stuff that I will never understand. Maybe, because I know myself so well! He used to want me to put a loaded gun under the mattress when he was out of town, but I knew if someone broke in, I’d be so freaked out that by the time I thought about the gun, the bad guy would’ve found it and used it himself…. I feel safer with a baseball bat, myself. Anyone have any clues??
