My hubby Bob (not even close to his real name. . but it makes me giggle) has always loved pocket knives. He happens to own many of them, even though he only carries one in his "pocket" at a time. I have always thought of it as like women with purses. He owns many, they are all a bit different looking and he trades them off from time to time. OK, that all has worked for me until. . . Dun, dun, dun! (Did you like that?)
He decided to buy MANY pocket knives. I guess he is planning on selling these knives, although he hasn't really got a plan on how this is going to take place yet. This week we have had boxes arriving daily with hundreds of knives of every kind in them. I have been afraid to ask the details, but I am assuming he has close to 300 knives as of today. Now I started to get a bit alarmed at this supposed crazy behavior he is displaying and then I thought "Di, I'll bet EVERY husband does this. I'm sure that ALL wives are embarrassed by their husband's knife obsession and surplus and they are just afraid to say it! I would imagine that their living rooms have been taken over by "the knife store" at some point in their lives too. And their child has probably come to them late at night with nightmares over somebody coming in and taking that big hunting knife and stabbing them. Just put your crazy worries to rest Di! Bob is just doing what every other guy does or has done!"
So after having that conversation with myself, I put my mind at ease! I know you are all probably nodding your heads and saying "I remember when my husband _____ did that!". I'm so glad we are all in this together because quite frankly, if we weren't, I would seriously consider having Bob checked out (or checked in, if you know what I mean!) Anyway, if you need a knife. . . I will sell you one, or two or many or give you a box full. I've got a living room full. Did I mention that? Did I mention there are hundreds of them? And that my 6 year old is the VERY proud owner of one of them? Did I mention that I may need to get myself checked out? OK, yeah, that is a good idea. . I will go. I'll get back to you on the knife store :/
Oh wait. . . in other kind of wacky news: I heard that they are going to take the Polygamist children and put them in temporary foster care. Of course, they are waiting for some DNA testing to come back so that they can separate them with their siblings as much as possible. What the heck? Aren't they all siblings? All 450 of them? haha! I'm thinking that somebody is going to have a difficult time being foster parents to 50 siblings. Doesn't really make a lot of sense to me at this point but what does? I think the knife obsession is starting to affect me too:)
