Wow!  It’s a situation sunday again and Helena is still waiting on your participation, so go check it out.

Situation # 1 – You are out shopping, you have a small child with you. { Could be yours or a relative, you are watching.} You make it back to the car. Put the child in the back in the car seat. Load all the bags into the trunk. Get in the car and put the keys in the ignition……Suddenly a masked guy jumps into the passengers side,,and says drive lady in a angry voice with a gun pointed at your head…..What do you do?

I hope I tell the guy to go ahead and shoot or get out of the car.  I don’t think I do though.  I think I drive with him like he insists.  It would probably not be my best driving though, I would drive like a maniac basically.  I think ultimately I would crash lightly into something after I got all my thoughts together.  It would take a few minutes at least though. 

When I drove truck we did one time have some people try to jump our truck.  We were moving though, just in a bad section of town.  They never got in and we didn’t stop for them.

Situation # 2 – Time for your family Christmas get together. Everyone is there, from your siblings to their spouses, and children. Every one is told to bring a gift, one that can be given to a male or a female. And everyone is to bring a child’s gift, equal to the number of children that will be at the party. The adult gifts are put in a grab bag, where you pull out one, and if it is the one you brought you have the option to keep or pick again. The children’s gifts are done the same way. You happen to pick a gift, and it happens to be a “re gift”, one that you have bought for your sister a few years ago. What do you do or say as you open the gift?

Oh, I am so a re-gifter, sorry if this offends you.  I wouldn’t say a darn thing if I got a re-gift.  I would probably just re-gift it back to someone else if I didn’t like it.  I can tell you this, if you get a cinnamon candle from me.  It is a re-gift guarantee.  I seem to be the cinnamon candle bus driver for some reason every year I get tons of cinnamon candles through the year.  I have like a little drawer of them to re-gift to whomever.

Situation # 3 – A big snow storm is brewing out side. Already a foot of snow has fallen and expecting another foot to come. Your house is out in the country with your nearest neighbor being 5 miles away. Your house is on a back road. The last storm brought only 8 inches, and it took the highway department 1 week before they cleared the roads for you to get out. This storm looks like it will be much longer before you are cleared out. The phone service has went out,,,you can see where the line snapped. There is a knock on your door, almost like a bang. You open your door to find Teri Hatcher and Johny Depp at your door. They will be staying with you till the storm ends. They were on their way to shoot a movie, got lost and ended up stuck in the snow. They have walked 2 miles in the blizzard to get to your place……{ Keep in mind…after this it will be on the news, and tons of reporters shall be coming} How will you handle the next 2 weeks?

I really would just be calm like normal.  I would maybe wash the sheets for them.  LOL… Call it a lucky day.  I would hate being trapped in the house though and would probably be quite nutty by the end.  I don’t like staying home a full 48 hours let alone two weeks.  I always have to get out and do things.  It keeps me sane.  Having Teri and Johny would probably be a welcome change for this long stretch of home time.  I have to say though, I haven’t really seen much of there work, so it wouldn’t be like they are staying with a huge fan or anything.  I would just see them almost as just normal basic people.

Have a great week.
