Watch out Martha Stewart! (seriously, watch your back)

When Kira got up she said, "Today I think I'll make a weapon," and then she got busy and wouldn't let me see what she was doing until she was finished. Mitch and Sam are gone today so I'm alone with her. While she was working I was thinking to myself, Why would she have to make a weapon? She already has a bow and arrow and a slingshot. Why spend time crafting another? What is she going to do to me?  If I scream will anyone hear me?

When she finished I was in the bathroom cleaning up. She threw open the door and threatened me with this:

A mace. How very medieval. I wonder if they have a weapons category in 4H?


  1. What are the pointy bits made of?

  2. The pointy parts are toothpicks. The toothpicks are shoved into a ball of aluminum foil, and the ball is tied to a piece of yarn which is attached to a whippin' stick. It's mostly for looks because when she tried to display its destructive power, the toothpicks broke and the yarn came untied.

  3. My son would love her. He can't find girls like that!

    Your title made me laugh. I wonder if Martha would consider this "A good thing"?
