    Talk up personal defense -- an example

    (Mods, I didn't know where else to put this....)

    It was nearly the night before Christmas and all through the house
    I was prompting, and asking, "What would you like?" to my spouse.
    She thought and she pondered and at last finally fixed
    Upon her bracelet of charms she'd add golden tricks.

    Then off to the jeweler's we dashed in our wagon
    Joined by two mush hounds whose tails were a waggin'.

    What bobble or two to join 'round the wrist
    But needles for knitting and a baseball, she'd list.
    "Not enough," she declared, "One more would be fun!"
    And asked the sales lady for a gold 1911-style gun.

    Then after adding the costs, and considering all its worth
    The gift was divided over Christmas and the day of her birth.

    Which brings me up to today, when to the jeweler’s I went
    Alone to pick up and pay for that costly, golden present.

    And the sales lady says with a most quizzical look,
    “The needles I can figure,” as I cracked open the checkbook,
    “The baseball’s an item causing no need to ponder,
    But this gun! In style nineteen eleven makes me wonder!”

    Not one to stay silent, I seized the moment to brag on my wife
    Who takes seriously personal protection and her right to life.
    And by the time I was finished there came no complaining
    From this sales lady who now wants defensive pistol training!

    (I'm not normally left-brained, but some how this escaped from me!)

    Very clever! Also a good way to win a convert.
