Scared Straight.

Last night I had a very vivid dream:

Heidi (my SIL) and I were having a "girls night out" at a jazz club in downtown Provo (no such club exists). We walked there from my house, and were promptly seated upon arrival at said club. It so happened that Barak Obama was there that night, basking in the culture and sophistication of the Provo Jazz Scene.

All of a sudden, the power went out, and someone from the street ran into the club an frantically announced that "The Security main frame has been shut down!!" It's obvious what happened here-- A TERRORIST ATTACK! I immediately dive under the table as Barak Obama is rushed out of the building.

Then, one of the terrorists barges through the front door and begins shooting. Just as I am wishing that Justin was there with his largest gun, who shows up? Wonderboy himself. Justin proceedes to try to negotiate with the terrorist, all the while I'm screaming in my head, "WE DON'T NEGOTIATE WITH TERRORISTS!"

The terrorists, thinking he knows who Justin's spouse is, goes over to a random woman and shoots her in the head. Justin immediately shoots the terrorist in the eye, and as he falls to the ground, lifeless, we all flee the building.

Justin, Heidi and I run back to our house. I have to make Justin stay with us instead of going to be a superhero somewhere else. He does, we baked a birthday cake, and then I checked facebook on my phone to make sure everyone else was OK.

Needless to say, I woke up in a panic. About food storage. At 4 in the morning, I couldn't get back to sleep because I was panicked that if the "security main frame" ever went down we wouldn't have enough to eat.

So I went to the Macey's case lot sale today and bought be some food storage with money my mom had given us for Christmas just for that purpose.

All of this was only $100. I'm so proud of myself! I saved over $27 on the red wheat alone because it was the sale...
This should keep us alive for a little while in the event that the security main frame is compromised. Or maybe I just need to stop watching The Unit.
