I'm not saying who, but someone wasn't taking care of their hair. I'm not pointing fingers, but they thought that long hair would be easier than having to go to a hair salon twice a month to have it cut. I'm not here to place the blame, but someone thought that "out of sight, out of mind" meant that if they couldn't see what was in the back of their head, the problem would just go away.
It wasn't until we witnessed a drug deal go bad at a border town truck stop that I stopped to seriously consider safety. Certainly, I had thought about it. We covered our windows at night to deter attention. I sleep with a hatchet and a bottle of bear spray next to my pillow and have yet to maim my driving companion. But are these practical safety precautions, or do they just make sense in my head?
