This was the most convoluted verbal and logical journey I have ever taken. Thank you!

I was starting to go a little cross-eyed in the midst of your exhaustive looping madness of mighty words and definitions when I hit the story of the kids, backed up and re-read it.

Fantastic solution.

The moral, I assume, is that in any given situation a creepy fake Nazi is pretty fucking intimidating when weilding a Mauser.

I laughed my ass off.

“Speak softly, wear a “Coal Scuttle”, and carry a Bayoneted Mauser”

Does have a “Ring” to it, alright.

Most situations respond to a creative non-harmful solution of attitude adjustment.
Some Don’t.

The reality of that situation was that
I was never in the armed services, but as a product of my fathers ‘50s Scout Troop I learned
Always Be Prepared,
I had had training in both Bayoneting and Butt-Stroking.
Scouting was unabashedly paramilitary in those days.

Had the kids turned violent, I felt confident I could have “butt-stroked” all three before they got their act together- Last ditch I had a round chambered. (Safety on/muzzle to the side ) ( No, I probably wouldn’t have shot them, but the muzzle blast would have shaken them up and summoned the police) THEN I’d butt-stroke them.

Read your Pink Pistols Blog- Glad to find you here! Wonderful stuff!

And “an exhaustive looping madness of mighty words and definitions” so wonderfully discribes the effect I was striving for. I don’t expect many people to “Get” what I’m trying to do- Robin Sneed, dianaani, and Seer, are three who usually do, I’m glad to find another.
Thank you for your kind words
And thank you for “Getting” it.

note- for those of you who are not familiar with the term, “butt-stroking” as used here, it is not usually perceived as a sexual caress and certainly is not a “Boy Scout Fetish” ( but I’ve heard of some surprising fetishes in my time, so I wont rule it out as someone’s favorite )
Token...damn you for making me think! I just moved yesterday...and I have fifteen things to do....and I will be thinking about this and come back for a discussion!

This is beautifully done....though few understand defense of self....thank you for talking about my experiences as owned....I think that is of the utmost importance in self defense...xoxoxox
Robin

Thank you for reading and "getting" this. I appreciate not having time to keep up on OS posts, I'm having some trouble on that line myself. In fact, I will be "off the Net" until at least Monday Night ( Can you believe their are places without internet? )(oops- I work in one) Anyway, please do comment, one of the reasons for writing this was looking forward to discussing it with you. PM if that's an easier way to organize your thoughts, I'm looking forward to hearing them

Seer

Thank you as well - never thought of myself as PBS material- I'm usually shooting for the "Military Comedy" channel . As with Robin, I'm always delighted to hear your thoughts. I really wasn't certain their were any people out there who are crazy enough to "Get" this style of writing. Thanks for getting it.
I feel like it's late, we've all had a few beers, and we get into this long winded discussion of self, of defense, of word origins, of anecdotal evidence, until it is transcribed into something like this post.

Some of my favorite bits are the aphorisms: "Don't set out to sea on the blueprints for your boat." and "justice is in the eye of the beholder."

I also wonder, since you mentioned it twice, what is the significance of 40 years. It almost sounds biblical. Or maybe it's your birthday.

I'm still on vacation, but found a moment to login and read and comment and rate. Feel lucky!

This is what comes of being away from the library/bookstore and having to fall back on (Over?) my bookcase This could also be titled “Moby Rabbit” It’s the result of Re reading “Kim”, Moby Dick”, “In No Sense a Broad”(By Two Fathom), and “The Return of Sherlock Holmes” over the last week. Mix well with Negra Modelo (Well, the first one anyway, after that anything dark and cheap works) and Bugs Bunny cartoons. Add Robin and my banterings about our impressions of the pornography vs burlesque of violence in cinema. Shake well. Serve before sobering up. Hope you’re having a good vacation. Thanks for your (as always) perceptive critique. No particular conscious reference to 40- but maybe a subconscious reference to concepts acquired mid 20’s re-evaluated mid 60’s, and still found to be serviceable, if a little more ornate and less clear cut.
sorry I missed this while my computer was being fixed. You are irreplaceable.
@Ardee

Sorry to have not acknowleged your comment for so long, I must confess I don;t check my posts as often as I would like. Thank you so much for your kind words, and thank you for stopping by
