Is That A Gun In Your Pocket, Or Are You Just Glad To See Me?

Scene: an emergency management workshop at a local community college. Participants are a mixed bag of first responders, public health workers, civil engineers, etc. I am sharing a table with a state trooper who looks all of...I dunno, 16?

Me: I think we've met before; were you at any of the planning meetings for the big tornado drill last fall?

He: No, ma'am, don't think so.

Me: Are you on the county Disaster Preparedness Committee?

He: No, ma'am, I'm afraid not.

Me: Well, it's funny, but your face looks very familiar!

He: Have I ever arrested you?
