Hearth & Home & Fire Escape

So, believe it or not, last night I found myself in the unlikely position of having to brandish the longsword pictured here to scare off an intruder who was messing around on the fire escape outside my back door. True story. Totally worked, too, which I attribute to the element of surprise more than anything else.

added: also, it should be noted that at the time I was wearing glasses, pajama bottoms, and a Queers All-stars long sleeved T shirt.

Glad it worked. But a Glock would be better.

Possibly, sir, he does not possess a cutlass. Or, Glock, rather.

Shit. Wow.

Also: hahahahaha!

You always could have called the police. Then again, maybe a long sword is a safer option.

That's ballsy. What if you had had to use it? Glad it worked out. (Incidentally, that is a pretty hilarious image if it is okay to laugh at this).

It's not pretty hilarious, Josh. It is EXTREMELY hilarious, which is why I posted it.

I think that, in the first second or so of seeing it, an intruder is going to be more scared of a sword than a gun. It's larger and more visually intimidating.
