My dad (who I had expected to freak out and insist I move into a locked tower or something) had a surprisingly calm reaction to the whole drive-by thing (see previous post):
Dad: We have had shootings down the street from us, so I am not too freaked out
Me: well, i’m glad you’re not too upset
Me: i was kind of worried you’d freak out
Dad: I would be if this went on every week, but it can happen on an occasional basis anywhere
Gotta love that the guy who’s paranoid about me getting a roommate dismisses shootings with a been there, done that. He does have common sense…he just shows it at the oddest times.
