Nnekay vs. Daggers of Death: Pt. Two Electric Boogaloo
It was a face melting hot day.
Well not hot in the sense that New Orleans was an ever bucket of sweaty goop, but more in a weenie California- can't handle anything over 75 degrees- way.
Just look at Kail up there... all deflated and sprawled out. Her, me, and my boyfriend, Andrew were sweating it out.
Yet for some reason, I had this tiny little inkling of energy. Which I decided to use towards THROWING KNIVES!
So I went back to my slab of wood Andrew set up for me originally, and began tossing away, in the tomahawk sort of fashion a fine young chap on youtube taught me.
After completely scaring the ducks into a corner of the yard, I finally started making it close to my target:
But as you can see... not that close.
I started getting angry and wildly flailing my arms in the direction of the board:
The results angered me more, causing a wilder-beast to emerge from the deep dark sections of my being. I began lunging the knifes at the board:
Which, with increasing intensity started to land around the yard.
It was at that point, my brave boyfriend called, "Baby..." mind you this was from inside the house, "maybe you should move the board... looks like you might get it lost in the bushes." I replied, with a little bit of crazy in the eye,
"Nooooo, I know what I'm doing!" and continued throwing daggers around his backyard.
This one scared the crap out of me, but when throwing knives a little fear is good... so I considered it a win.
I threw one last knife, thinking this would be my ending shot filled with awesome- it promptly landed in the bushes.
A black hole of bushes if you will.
Feeling very badass from my knife throwing high, I dove head first into the depths. The further and darker I pushed through, a strong nervous tingle began to trickle down my spine.
Would if... there is a wild rat in here?
Would if... that rat is dead?
Would if... I find a dead bird?
Would if... I find a dead bird being eaten by a rat?!?!
While such thoughts were ran rampant through my mind, I stumbled upon something hard and scratchy. I flipped. Stumbling backwards to fall into the safety of the house.
To show how insane my imagination is, this is my boyfriend's cute and nowhere near rat infested garden (he built that fence himself!):
Later on, I watched the real badassness happen as he stoically chopped away ("I didn't like this bush anyway") with a giant hoe, to help find my knife.
Turns out, I was afraid of a small tree stump.
