Yesterday, while Nikki was shooting our Taurus .22 revolver, I set about loading up the magazines for our Ruger Mark II. What a chore.
I bought myself one of these little red doohickeys
almost immediately after learning how to shoot because, like Robb, I have very tender thumbs. As you can see over at Sharp as a Marble, they do make some sort of super speedloader device, which would be great but honestly, I'm holding out for something even better. For quite awhile now, and every time I shoot the Mark II, I wish for a trained ammo monkey. Those capuchins have nimble little fingers, don't they? And they are kind of cute...
I would make sure it wore teeny protective eyewear and earmuffs at the range, and maybe a wee vest. The diaper might be a problem, but I bet I could train it to use the litterbox with the cats. And, hey, maybe even clean the litterbox! That would be awesome. Ammo monkey is definitely the way to go.
Anyway - as I was loading up the magazines I remembered I had another that someone had loaned me. I told Nikki and she said, "Oh, okay. Is it in the gun case?"
"No, it's in my purse."
Nikki started laughing. "What?" I asked. "What's funny?"
"You. It's in your purse, " she said, still chuckling.
I grinned at her. "Am I the weirdest girl you know or what?"
"Yeah. You really are," Nikki said. "But I like it." (& to me, this is a huge compliment)
I guess you can tell a lot about a woman by the contents of her purse.
...and now that you're all probably wondering what else I've got stashed away, and because I'm completely bored, here's a list:
Along with the spare Mark II magazine, I've got a Sanrio Chococat wallet, a blue Swiss Army card, 2 pairs of sunglasses, my keys on a compass keychain, a Tide-to-go pen, a ticket stub to the Falun Gong Chinese Spectacular, 3 lipglosses (one regular pinkish color, one raspberry chocolate flavored and the absolutely essential GIANT Dr. Pepper lipsmacker), an old folded up World Tour of Beer list (I keep meaning to check them off as I go), a polka-dotted emery board, some fruity chewing gum, and a lot of polyhedral dice, all pink.
So there you go. All is now revealed.
