New Thing #260: Bottle/Rock It
This photo has nothing to do with what I ended up doing today. It does have a lot to do with what I wanted to do, which was break a bottle and wield it menacingly. That's dangerous, hence the protective gear, and hence my deciding to first wrap the bottle in a paper bag before slamming it on the kitchen counter. It's also difficult, hence the apparent need to be a tough dude in a bar, or someone with a lot of anger. I'm neither, and I just couldn't do it. And it was late and I was cranky (note: not angry) and I wanted to go to bed, so instead I fit an iPod in my mouth. This is just as important a protective measure as knowing how to break a bottle and wield it menacingly; what if the person who wants to beat me up also wants to take my iPod? At least one of us would be safe. Plus, neat parlor trick.
I left my protective glasses on because they're not protective, they're fabulous.
