Last Thursday was a weirdly frustrating day with way too many things I had to do, errands to run, meetings to attend. The day ended with an asshole of a thunderstorm that hung around for hours and didn't stop keeping me awake until 2 goddamn 30 in the morning. Jack. Ass.
Anyway, one really great thing did happen on Thursday, a life-changing thing. I went to the drug store to pick up some stuff and wandered through the "back to school" section because who doesn't want school supplies? There's something renewing and fresh about brand new notebooks and pencils and lunch boxes, isn't there? I miss getting new school supplies. Mixed in among the supplies was a bucket of the most incredible thing I'd ever clapped eyes on: metallic rock'em sock'em skull robot fighting pens. I KNOW. I grabbed two of them and hugged them to me before the rest of the world caught on. $1.49 each for that kind of joy? A bargain!
Surprisingly, nobody else I showed them to seemed very impressed. Maybe they were all just stunned and jealous? I don't know. I took the fighting skulls home to Kenny and finally got the reaction I wanted - his eyes lit up. We had a great time fighting each other (and the cats, who hate the skull fighting pens. A lot.) The morning after the storm I was woken up by a tiny metallic fist punching me repeatedly in the chin.
We plotted and planned and came up with new and fascinating scenarios in which the fighting skulls were featured. On Monday night we finally got around to, uh, writing with them and discovered that OMFG THEY LIGHT UP TOO. I cannot believe that so much technology can be had for such a low, low price.
Last night, we up and lost our minds. Enjoy:
