A Very Combative Christmas
Mom gave me a cast-iron crepe pan for Christmas. When I showed it to my roommate Rocky, she hefted it with a familiar glint in her eye. I positioned my hands for a knap by way of assent, and she “knocked” me a few steps back with the flat of the pan, laughing. When I turned with the blow, I saw the bubble wrap from a box of See’s Candy sitting on the TV stand and palmed it. I turned back to Rocky, cradling the right side of my face and glaring at her.
The sound of me adjusting my jaw back into place, and the look on her face, was AMAZING.
Merry Christmas to all celebrating, and a happy New Year. I hope to remember this blog a bit more in 2013, though life is both busy and almost stage-combat free…except when my roommates are feeling silly.
