I lost a Boker...in my house!
I have a Boker Automat 74 prepared for defense. I almost used it at B&N. It never leaves my side. It's not a jackknife, it's a life-line.
So I go into the bedroom to get something, come out, and I'm not holding the Boker. I re-trace my steps--nothing!
Out comes the SureFire. I laser the area like CSI agent Gil Grissom, and I cannot find a thing. Now I'm worried.
Finally my wife gets up, and that's usually a sign of disgust with my "toys," and her usual advice is to stop looking as she says, "It will turn up." Yeah, but I want it now. I keep looking.
In desperation, she laments, "Well, what does it look like?"
I tell her it's a switchblade. She frumps, "Everything has a spring in it here...knives, pens, tampons..."
Knowing she knows nothing about knives, (she uses a 3,000 dollar Hattori like a paring knife starting dinner), so I need a prop. I feverishly look around, see a knife on a stack of magazines, and pick it up.
Slowly, I begin, "Well, it looks a lot like this knife--same color, green handle, black blade, and it's a Boker, too..."
...then I realize what I'm holding...
...No matter where you are it's enemy territory...
