When folks get edgy, they do one of three things: Lash Out, Hunker Down or Seek Comfort. WAY TOO MUCH lashing out lately. Folks taking to the streets because the world doesn’t spin their way. Just ain’t fitting.
Hunker down and focus on basics. That’s what folks in Texas do. Thank God for The Castle Doctrine. The Castle Doctrine, especially the Texas interpretation, is one Fussy believes in. In The Lone Star State, we are permitted to defend our homes. With force if necessary. A man’s home is his castle.
It doesn’t matter if the man is made of gingerbread. Neither does it matter that his home is highly edible. Who could blame our little Gingerbread Man for defending his Cookie Jar home? All the more reason to defend his world.
And yet, Gummy Bears and Teddy Grahams can’t resist the temptation of a simple shortbread cookie. Shortbread, gingerbread, candy and icing; it’s a classic conflict worthy of Hansel and Gretel.
Portraying the Castle Doctrine in edible terms. Hunkering down and seeking comfort in food. That’s something Fussy can sink her teeth into.
