The 20th Anniversary

… of my 29th birthday.

Sweet Daughter gave me a Cold Steel Magnum Kukri Machete, in tacti-kewl black with the 17" blade (now with 20% more Mall Ninja!) Ostensibly, it’s for keeping the vine-covered slope between the yard and the road cleared, but I think it will come in handy for a visual aid once she’s dating.

“Hi, Mrs. R. Is SD home?”

“Yes, she’ll be down in just a minute.”

(With SD not being there to divert him yet, his attention will be drawn to the Cold Steel Magnum Kukri Machete with some of the black paint missing, a few dents in the 17" blade, but still with 20% more Mall Ninja! positioned across my lap.)

“Um, ma’am, can I help you with that?”

“No thank you. I’m just cleaning the blood off the blade before it does any damage.”

  1. Happy Birthday !
    A friend did a similar thing with those dating his beautiful daughter too, except his 'visual aid' was always a 10" barrelled S&W 44 Mag....The first time he let her go out with a guy, who always had to come in, meet the folks etc, he stopped the boy at the door, pulled him aside, and tried to impress upon him how he valued his daughter. He ended the 'talk' with "and just remember, I dont really mind going back to prison..."! :)

  2. Have a terrific birthday!

    As the father of sixteen year-old daughter... I can relate... she says I already scare the boys, even the one who haven't asked her out...

  3. Happy Birthday! Though I would never have guessed 20th anniversary.

    And I heartily approve of the use you plan to put to your machete. I have similar plans.

  4. Happy Birthday! And make sure the handle of the kukri is wrapped in leather. Let them imagine where it came from.

  6. “No thank you. I’m just cleaning the blood off the blade before it does any damage.”

    After which you have to say, "So, what did you have planned for tonight."
