overheard at the Fallacies

Scene: Mike & Breda, in the bedroom, folding laundry. Breda is sitting on the bed, folding one of her tank tops.

Mike: "You know, maybe you should consider getting one of those holster shirts. It'd be great for a smaller pistol like a Kel-Tec. Deep concealment."

Breda: (distractedly matching socks) "Hmm...I guess it might work."

Mike: "The only problem is that you'd have to reach up inside your shirt to get at the gun and, well...you'd basically be showing everyone your underwear."

Breda: "Um, Mike? My ancestors painted themselves blue, spiked up their hair and went into battle naked. I don't think there'd be a problem."

I wish I had a nickel for every time I painted myself blue, spiked up my hair and went into battle naked!

I call that "Friday night.

Sometimes I mix a light green into the paint and really freak her out.

Mike Janich would call that a "distraction tactic"

You do have to admit, it was a heck of a tactic. I can't think of many people that would want to get within reach of a naked, visibly aroused guy slathered in mildly hallucinogenic blue dye.

Truly, one must Pict their fights.

Right, like you'd worry about flashing the room when the shit is hitting the fan! Go, Breda!

Haha love it. Been reading your site for a while, linked you so I can read constantly. But not at work of course, I would never do that...

I'm a shooter myself and really enjoy hearing things from a chick's point of view :o)

"...you'd basically be showing everyone your underwear."

Good way to distract your opponent until you could get the drop on him.

My ancestors painted themselves blue, spiked up their hair and went into battle naked.

Now that's conjured up mental images Mike would probably shoot me for having :-)

The Celts, our people, the only people of Europe that Caesar feared, their blood flows in our veins yet.

When son first showed up with spiked hair, I said "It's the Irish side coming out in you."
"Huh?"
"Irish warriors would spike their hair with lime before battle. Along with painting themselves blue."
He just thought about it and grinned.

No, I never did ask about paint after that.

It's not the the image of a spikey-haired, blue bodied, naked Breda foiling a bank robbery. It's the certain realization that her allies (self included) would be too transfixed to lend assistance!

John B said...

ps Breda, you ever get you that boonie hat?

My first time here reading, thanks to Ambulance Driver. I could tell you about so many things that happened during those nursing days. Thankfully, most people were polite. I figured if the baby was hungry, the baby would be nursed and whoever got offened, well, that was THEIR problem. As a result, I have zero problem showing some chest if the situation calls for it. Maybe I'll get a side holster and wear it UNDER my shirt.
