In Humor Scary scary weapons bag Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #3 New 01-26-2008 02:04 PM
So my old weapons bag died, so I bought a shiney new one from nine circles, a purple one with "In a state of perfect meditation, free your mind from worldly thought, like a clear perfect mirror or motionless water" written on it in kanji.

All very nice.

But I've noticed something. Before when I had a plain black weapons bag everyone assumed I was an angler. Now they assume I'm a mass muderer!

I'm sitting on the train on my way to training. There's me and two other people in my section of the carridge, do I get my ticket checked? No, I get a slightly worried look off the dude, who's doing the whole "I'm not scared, honest" thing. I get off the train and people are all but running away from me. I answered the phone and the guy infront of me nearly jumped out of his skin.

The other day I'm walking back from training through town and I can feel eyes on me so I look around, and there's like 15 people eyeballing my weapons bag like meercats.

Everywhere I go people watch me like I'm about to do a zatoichi impression.

Walked into a pub, again on the way home, cuz I was about to wee wee myself and there's three guys at the bar and the first one says. "Are those samurai swords?" So I just nodded.

Thinking I might buy a plain black bag again.
