Sort of an obsessed freak

Post script to the last post about emergency preparedness:

The wife was very skeptical about emergency preparedness for a long time. She seemed to think my diligence was quaintly eccentric. And then she took a workshop about getting ready for The Big One that could hit the Pacific Northwest before I finishing typing this sentence. Boy, did she change her tune! “Honey,” she says, “we’ve got to get ready!” I confess, I smirked smugly. “Oh?” I said. “Please, tell me more!”

“Well,” she says, “I used to think you were sort of an obsessed freak about this. But I totally get it now!”
