random fear

A home invasion while my nail polish is still wet -  totally ruined manicure AND I'd have to mop the floor!

...thought while painting my nails a light cerulean blue*, hoping the sky takes a hint.


*zOMG, yes! A woman straps a pistol on her hip and paints her fingernails! (& I did the dishes earlier and STILL nothing. No wild west shootouts, no blood in the kitchen, nada. I'm considering baking a banana bread while armed. We'll see how it goes.)

Col. Cooper always said, "If your sidearm isn't in reach while you're reading this, you missed the point of API 250."
I don't paint my nails, but 'something' is always in reach.

Bake away, baby!
And be armed.

I think most blogs are more for the blogger than the readers. But your blog makes me smile and sometimes ponder. Thanks

banana bread eh? does it have nuts?

Oh man, gouges in wet polish are the worst. And you'd likely have to clean it off your gun too.

Breda - I'm considering baking a banana bread while armed.

WHOA, there! Don't you know that this is one of THE Great Mistakes? There's the one about a land war in Asia, then the one about Sicilians, and only SLIGHTLY less well-known is NEVER bake banana bread while armed! I guess we can just be grateful that it isn't poppy seed bread. And that you carry a small pistol and not a halberd. Who knows how THAT could wind up???

Um... DO you put nuts in your banana bread?

Doing the dishes, painting your nails and baking banana bread? I'd say your worst fear is from the man of the house being overly amorous. Now I see why you pack heat.

Don't paint my nails, but I do trim them whilst wearing a gun.

Also doing the dishes was my #1 test to see if my shoulder rig works for concealment. I did a whole mess of dishes while the wife was puttering around the kitchen...then I took off my sweatshirt and watched for the surprised reaction!

Glaco Miami Classic II, it works like a mo'fugger at hiding your 1911!

Just hope that you're not applying Mascara when the Zombies start crashing through your windows!

When banana bread is outlawed, only outlaws will have...cerulean blue fingernails.

A warm gun, warm bread, and a perp bleeding out in the front entryway....

Don't mess with Breda or her bread. (which sounds damn tasty BTW, do you also make banana nut muffins?)
