Glocks in Box


I had to reschedule my sons weekly guitar lesson due to a conflict with the upcoming start of soccer. That meant getting up early on Saturday, when I might otherwise have slept in and taking him to class. As I sat outside the strip mall waiting for him I was caught by the sight of a young 4 or 5 year old girl walking down the sidewalk with her mom. No, I wasn't just staring at the mom (although not bad...), but instead the fact that the girl was carrying what appeared to be a Glock. I was a little startled about why a child would be carrying around a Glock and in a public area. The mom didn't seem to be too concerned, but I certainly was when they turned and walked right in to where my sons' guitar lessons were being held. OK, I was bewildered. My curiosity grew as I saw another 4/5 year old child arrive with his mom and he was also carrying a Glock. And then another and another and another. Each of them walking around with a Glock in his hands.



I couldn't take it anymore. I know I live in Texas, but to see young kids walking around with these things was too much to take. I had to know what was going on. So I weant inside after them to get some answers. It turns out the same place that teaches my son the ways of the guitar also has a class for young kids on the weekend in which they are all required to purchase their own Glock. I still don't know what kind of nefarious plan I've stumbled onto. The children were all in a room with their parents when I entered the building. Sitting just to the side of each of them were their Glocks in specially manufactured cases. Are the children being raised to be some sort of spies or soldiers or muhjadeen? I don't know. But it frightens me.

You totally suckered me in with that one.

Damn you glockenspiel!

I used to play the glock apparently...

My son has a miniature glock at home. We practice with it all the time. I'm hoping to turn him into a professional.

Gyuss-I'm glad it worked. When it happened over the weekend I was enamored with the idea of this post. I also considered writing it in the style of Dr. Seuss, but due to time constraints decided against it.

I LOVE the Seuss! Did you know I wrote an Epiphany pagenat for church in the style of said genius? It was a big hit.

plug said...

OK, that was pageant.

fringes said...

Very good. You're quite the Tarantino of the blogosphere.

Gyuss Baaltar said...

Plug,

I did know that. I was the guy at the back of the church in the trench coat.

Dagromm said...

plug-I don't remember that. If all church was done like a Seuss book I might be better at going consistently.

fringes-Is that a compliment?

Q said...

I would say that it is a compliment Dagromm, along the same lines as calling you the Lenny Harris of blogging, which you most certainly are...

plug said...

dagromm,

You wouldn't remember that as it was just a few years ago.


gyuss,

That was you? We wondered who got struck by the wrath of God. You got smote.

Man, you got me too! LOL

If I ever have kids, I'll teach them how to shoot my Glocks (and other firearms) as soon as they're old enough :)
