Men like this inspire me. And it makes me realize what a whiner I could be.

Hence the "stubborn" part! She was told this before, it finally sunk in this time, she said she felt like she was gonna die. The doctor was surprised she didn't have one. I told her even if she didn't use it, she could potentially save someone else's life. Then, unneededly, I said its cheaper than the bus ride, even after what it costs us out of pocket.

If the opposition disarms, all is well and good. If it refuses to disarm, we shall disarm it ourselves.

Got a call from the my prospective employer's background investigator today. He called just to tell me how highly my boss spoke of me and estimate he'd be done with me Wednesday.
With any luck I'll be outta here for the academy by July!

No, I really do want it, but I'd have a hard time paying more than $60 for a knife.

I don't really understand why that knife is so pricy. I can get this Ka-Bar for $65, and it's basically the same knife minus the hole for the bayonet lug.
