Storm Chaser

My son has a fascination with storms and tornadoes.  He has decided that he wants to be a storm chaser.  So today, he put on some storm chaser gear and headed out to the great outdoors.

A little while later, a delivery man arrived at our house.  He spotted my son.  "Are you going fishing?"  he asked.

My son straightened out his fishing vest.  "No, sir.  I'm a storm chaser."

"Oh," said the delivery man.  "Then why are you wearing a fishing vest?"

"It's holding my equipment."

"What kind of equipment?"

My son emptied his pockets.  "Well, here are some bandaids in case I get hurt.  A flashlight because it gets real dark in thunderstorms, and a compass so I can find my way back home in case a tornado picks me up and drops me somewhere else."

Now that's what I call prepared!

    1. Just about anything. I was kind of surprised that he didn't have a canteen full of water in that vest!
