Yesterday I took a lunch break with my friend and we went to a local place for a quick lunch. While we were eating and talking we suddenly heard a loud report like a gun shot! We both nearly ducked under the table. Everybody was alarmed and panic stricken. The guy sitting behind us stood up and showed everyone his soda can which had made the sound when he popped it open. The manager told him to get another can - gratis, which he did, but he left the place all redfaced, though nothing was his fault. Everyone is just so on edge these days because of all the mass shootings in my country. My friend and I were rattled and it made me think how would it be if things got so bad we all had to wear bulletproof vests in public for fear of getting shot. Both funny and sad at the same time.
