Why I Don’t Own a Hatchet or a Gun


I’m in the processing of converting all the old content here into WordPress, which among other things, lets me assign categories to each item.

I filed one item, principally about a woman who ran over her husband with a car, under several categories, including Murder and Kids.

My son, who’s sitting next to me on the sofa doing homework, says, “You’re posting stuff about murdering kids?!”

I say, “No, it’s about murdering husbands.”

“You’re posting stuff about kids murdering husbands?!”

“No, it’s about wives murdering husbands, which happens a lot, unfortunately.”

“It would happen around here if Mom had a hatchet or a gun.”

“That’s exactly why we don’t have those things.”
