It’s always good to have a contingency plan.

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this (I probably have) but I studied Criminology in college, with minors in Psychology and International Security. One of my best friends, Desiree, is an International Security major. As a result, our conversations are a little abnormal. Somehow, we’ve managed to come up with a contingency plan in case one of us gets kidnapped by terrorists. See, we’re just assuming that one of us is going to do something that gets us kidnapped by terrorists.

And what is this brilliant plan? Oh, it’s simple. If one of us gets kidnapped by terrorists, the other has to overthrow the entire terrorist organization to rescue the one that got kidnapped. Easy enough, right?

We haven’t quite figured out how one small 22-year-old girl is going to overthrow a terrorist organization. We’ve always assumed that we’d pull together a ragtag group of friends who somehow fit into television archetypes (the tech guy who hangs out behind a computer, the panicky language expert who keeps saying he should have just stayed home, the grumpy gunslinger with a shady backstory) and just come up with a plan as we go.

Here’s to hoping neither of us is actually kidnapped. But let’s be real, it would totally be her. Which sucks because then I have to take down a bunch of terrorists. And my combat boots broke last week.
