Your Assignment, Should You Choose To Accept It...

L is doing security duty at the Newport Beach temple tonight. He emailed someone in charge of the assignment, asking if there was any sort of "uniform" he needed to be aware of, such as a cap, name tag, should he be in white shirt and tie, etc. The reply he got was as follows:

"Here is the drill: You will check in at the front desk. Your name has already been submitted. From there you will be escorted to the Armory, where you will be issued the following items:

1. Black face camouflage

2. Barettas, 9mm with sound suppressors, 8 clips of live armor piercing ammo, and thigh holsters.

3. Black battle fatigues with full body armor.

4. Bullet proof helmet with night vision goggles

5. M4 A1 assault rifle, with AN/PEQ2 pointer and illuminator, ACOG 4x scope, and M203 grenade launcher.

OR -

A white windbreaker with "Temple Security" embroidered across the front, and an 8" dowel with a key attached for locking the perimeter gates at a certain time.

Good luck, and watch out for the rabbits!"

Now, I know that the windbreaker was more what he was expecting, but I know that this is more what he was hoping for to make his nighttime security gig more fulfilling:

*Never underestimate the power of PhotoShop! *

I wouldn't want to mess with L while he's on duty guarding parked cars! He'll be rockin' an i-Pod and sitting in a Ford Exploder, keeping one eye out for crime and destructive rabbits, and the other on his Pei-Wei takeout.


  1. This one made me laugh, Karen! And I loved your title, too.


    PS. Hey...your hubby looks pretty swell in his combat gear. heehee


Sit down, have some red punch and cookies, and tell me EVERYTHING...
