Conversations with Jimmy

Jimmy walked into my office where I had various pieces of camping and fishing gear laid out preparing for a fishing trip. Jimmy pointed at the small black canister on the table and the following conversation occurred.

Jimmy: "What's that?"

Mer: "Bear spray."

Jimmy: "What's in it?"

Mer: "Pepper stuff."

Jimmy: "Does it work on humans?"

Mer: "Well I reckon it would."

Jimmy: "Can I bring it into the house for when the bad guys come and break in to get me?"

Note: I carried bear spray when fly fishing alone on rivers in Montana.
