Daughter blows hit man’s cover!

Shooting Weatherby’s Mark V TRR Custom Magnum in .338 Lapua at Gunsite.

Earlier this week while I was at Gunsite, my five year old daughter’s Pre-K teacher asked her about her birthday. Here’s how the conversation went:

Teacher: “RayneAnne, what will your mommy and daddy and you do for your birthday?”

RayneAnne: My daddy is gone away and won’t be here.

Teacher: “Awe, that’s too bad. Where is your daddy?”

RayneAnne: “He went away to kill people.”

Teacher (With a startled and quizzical look.) “Really! Is your daddy a hit man?”

RayneAnne: “Yep.”

Needless to say, her teacher and I had an interesting conversation when I picked my girls up at school today.

Moral of the story: Be careful what you say around your kids.

    Still laughing. Reminds me when my oldest daughter was about 6, had her at the mall. It was time to leave. She said no, I said lets go now! And she blurts out, you’re not my daddy. As I grabbed her arm to help move her to the exit. Looking to see if the local mall cops were coming at us. Not funny then, hilarious now.

    My mother was called into the school by the administrators and they politely suggested that her daughters, my sisters, not speak about their Father being in prison for 3 1/2 years. My Mother laughed and explained – He was a Prisoner of War for 3 1/2 years.
