Today, Lauren and I witnessed something shocking at the supermarket: riot police of some sort.
We were checking out in one of the aisles, when we saw men in camo bullet proof vests who were carrying semi-automatic weapons walk through the supermarket. Naturally, we both stared at them, wondering what the hell was going on. Was someone trying to steal something? Was there some sort of riot downstairs? Was there a crazy person loose somewhere in the grocery store?
We seemed to be the only people phased by this at all. Apparently it was completely normal to everyone else around us.
Oh, and to answer all of my questions: no. They were just taking a leisurely walk through the grocery store with their loaded weapons.
No big deal, really.
