Go Ahead. Make My Day.
What? When? Where? Are you OK?
Seems last Saturday he was returning to his apartment on foot at 3 am after a late night "study session". He was alone and decided to take a shortcut under a bridge. Two homeless guys, (a guess on my part, I mean who hangs out under a bridge at 3 am besides somebody homeless? Although I guess they could have been trolls. Anyway...) they surround him and try to corner him. He picked up a brick and beaned one of them in the head. The other one, figuring the benefit to risk ratio had just dramatically tipped, took off running. The guy who took the brick to the head was busy nursing his wounds and my son made a hasty retreat while the getting was good.
My son has promised not to walk home alone again and preferrably not to walk at all. I think he was just following my strict instructions not to drive after a late night "study session". The world is fraught with danger. Glad to know he can take care of himself.
