Maybe There's A Reason Ed Never Lets Me Out Of The Truck

Ed and I were watching Satellite TV last night and saw a promo for a show called Disappeared. After watching the commercial I said, "That's got to be terrible, having a family member missing and having no idea where they are."

"It's never people like us." he said.

"What do you mean?" I asked.

"Well, think about you ever see some big burly guy missing? Or a girl your size?"

"Excuse me! Someone could abduct me, you know." I said.

"Yeah, but it's not likely."

"Not likely" because I rarely leave the truck to give them the opportunity to take me, not "not likely" because someone out there doesn't want a great find like me.

Big (no pun intended) difference.

Not likely because the Big Burly Guy wouldn't let it happen.

I know Brad, it is one of those things that is true, but better left unsaid. I have never seen an abducted person who was visibly large enough to defend themselves. They always seem like young smallish people or frail, but I haven't seen everyone who has been abducted either. So who am I to talk. :)
